The CARC will host a peanut boil and Amateur Radio License Exam at the Jackson county EOC, September 12, Saturday at 1600 Central time.
All are invited and welcomed to come participate and enjoy some great, fresh Jackson County peanuts! The Club will be hosting a raffle for a 2m Mobile radio, I believe it is an Icom, but I do not remember the model.
Also, there is quite a few projects that can be worked on during this time. We have a lot of new radio equipment that needs setting up and testing.
Look forward to seeing everyone there! N4RCC Richard
