Meetings begin at 7:00. Meetings are open to all interested parties and will be as short as possible to allow time for a program and have everyone out by 8:30.

Everyone is welcome to check into the Business Meeting Net, however comments and voting is restricted to dues paying members only.

Andy Delgado, KE5EXX, introduced APRS to the club as well as making the motion that the club use the unused antenna at the Nacogdoches County Road & Bridge Tower Site to install an IGate/Digipeater to facilitate the use of APRS in Nacogdoches.
Earlier today N5DUX sent an email about wanting to print a copy of an Amateur Radio License on high quality paper. It seems that the FCC no longer cares that people take pride in attaining their license and has stopped providing the license at all.
To print a Reference Copy of your license, you will need to find yourself in the FCC’s database.
