March 2024 President’s Message

Hello XWARN!
Time is moving so quickly. I cannot believe that we are already in the middle of March. Hamvention will be here before we know it. T-Shirts have been decided. Be thinking about when you can volunteer to sell them. Remember all members are required two hours. In just a few short weeks, we have our first large public service event with the Xenia Marathon. Please come out and help if you are able. We need lots of volunteers to make this event successful. I would like to extend a huge thank you to John Westerkamp, W8LRJ, and Tim Procuniar, N8NQH. They came out Sunday March 10th and installed a 440 repeater loaner that Tim has graciously leant us. We are now back up on the air on 443.100! And we will be able to use this frequency as our tactical for the eclipse. Speaking of which, also in a few short weeks is our total solar eclipse! This is a once in a life-time opportunity,,,actually most people don’t even experience this in their life-time. Please consider joining the county and/or district helping to be vigilant for any emergencies that might arise. If you want to be further involved, please let me know.
