While Bobby N3LL made it though the storm without any damage there were some trees down around his neighborhood. He got very lucky since the eye of Irma decide to curve around Englewood, FL. Click on a photo to see an full size image.
Congratulation to WA3VXJ & N3LL for winning first place in WPA section and sixth place in nation
Today’s work party was very successful and a lot of future infrastructure was put in place. We placed conduit buried to the driveway for a near future camera so members can check out the drive way condition. Also conduit was run to the telephone pole to move the inverted L over to the wooden telephone pole. And finally a conduit was put in place to that empty far tower so we can put an antenna on top of it.
Thanks go out to:
Chuck, Art, Karl, Nate, Tim, Dave, Joe

Hopefully we will seeing some of our snow birds before they head out of town as we typically plan to break bread and swap stories. As usual, solicitations are made for presentations with a bribe of a free lunch. Volunteers please contact President Jack Buzon, KA3HPM, ahead of time for agenda sequencing.
Please note that we are meeting on the third Saturday of this month to avoid conflict with other events and the holiday.
