Blast from the past

Can you guess the operator? This photo was taken in 1970. He was a very active member of SPARK for several years. He recently moved to Texas to be closer to family. Our loss as a club was a blessing to his family. He does keep in touch with a few members and listens to our Sunday night 2m net on the Broadcastify app. We miss hearing that voice saying his call as he can only do “KJ5ZW”.  The next time your back in Sedalia let us know.

Time to Upgrade

Now is the time to upgrade your license or to get that friend of yours to take the Technician test. With the added FCC license fee fast approaching on new and upgrades, time is running out on saving you the additional fee. Our next test session for local hams will be on June 5th following our monthly meeting. Those wishing to test must pre-register with Bret(WOVK). You can email Bret to get your name on the list. Bret’s email can be found on his QRZ page or on the ARRL website. You have some time to start studying so we wish all who will test the best of luck.
