July 30th there will be a Hamfest at the Wilson County Fairgrounds, and the league will be there. Hopefully, we will have a booth, and we should have more than a few league members around at the Hamfest. For more information please go here.
The League has been planning something that will be a lot of fun, Build Day 2016. As the name suggests, it is a day where the League will get together and build projects we have not tackled yet. Being closed to the public, Build Day is only going to be for members this year. Building antennas and improving stations, we hope Build Day will be very productive. Jacob (W4JZE) and Jerry (W4HZB) have put lots of work into the event and we are all looking forward to an afternoon of building/improving!
Also, please remember to check out Ham Quest!
