QCWA Chapter 6 Meeting Notice

The next meeting of the QCWA Chapter 6 will be held on Saturday, March 3, at 11:30 AM. Due to the closing of Sciulli’s Bar and Grill, we will have a  venue change to:

Kings Family Restaurant
5800 Grand Avenue
Neville Island,
Pittsburgh, PA

BUM O’ MONTH LOCATION CHANGE

Hello Bums o’ the Month–

Word has it that Sciulli’s Bar and Grill is closed. The doors are locked with no signs of life, and nobody answers the phone. With that in mind, thoughts are that the Kings Family Restaurant on Neville Island might be a suitable alternate. Kings is located at 5800 Grand Avenue right about where the I-79 bridge crosses over the Isle of Neville. With this being a civilized restaurant, perhaps showing up at 11:00 AM Feb.12 Monday might preclude conflict with the well mannered customers coming in for lunch at noon. Hope to see you there.

Trip To DX Engineering

The good WX on Saturday brought out a great turnout at DX Engineering. The new Icom 7610 was one of the main interests at the event and great deals on open box items. Nothing like going to a Ham radio store to spin the dials on all the new equipment. The staff at DX was there to answer questions and help with orders, not many guys and gals leaving with empty hands. Tnx to Tim Duffy K3LR who was also helping and greeting as many folks as he could. Looking forward to the August event which might include a car show at Summit Racing.
