Come to our monthly meeting or participate in our nets! All of our nets are open to visitors. Club nets are every Thursday; Elmer nets are every first and third Wednesdays of the month. The Elmer net discusses various aspects of "how to" and provides assistance and advice to all hams. Also, the ARRL has a new podcast for new hams called "So Now What?"
