MicroHAMS Special Club Meeting at Icom Tuesday, May 19th at 6:00 PM


Icom small

This is an invitation to a super-special MicroHAMS club meeting coming up Tuesday, May 19, 2015 (always the 3rd Tuesday) starting promptly at 6:00 PM at Icom America, 12421 Willows Rd NE, Kirkland, WA 98034 (see the map below). We are also planning on a presentation by Lynn Burlingame, N7CFO!

Unlike our usual meetings, being on time at 6:00 PM sharp is critical this time. There is only one person who has a key to let us in — Ray Novak, N9JA — and he will be fully occupied once we get started. Therefore, be on time. Please congregate about five minutes before the meeting at the main, front entrance on the west side of the building. It is marked MEET HERE on the map above. Again, please be on time. You don’t want to miss out.

If you have trouble finding us, try 146.58 MHz simplex — using an ICOM radio, of course.

MicroHAMS meetings are open to club members, those interested in joining the club (see club membership policy at http://www.microhams.com), and guests of club members. Others may also attend a club meeting by sending email to the club at least seven days prior to the meeting. Space for guests is limited.
