August Meeting Announcement

The Quad-County Amateur Radio Club will hold an online meeting August 12, 2020 at 7:00 PM. In the interest of maintaining a healthy environment for you, our members and guests, we feel the remote webinar is the optimal method to conduct meetings given today’s circumstances.

An available email list of members has been sent a notice which has all of the needed information to join the meeting by computer only. (Cell phone connection is no longer available.)

It may be advantageous to use voice only instead of both voice and video to eliminate drop-outs due to bandwidth limitations. Video is not required to participate.

If you have not received the email notice, email Bryan at: wa3ufn@arrl.net to advise so the information can be emailed.

Due to the 50 minute limitation, imposed by the webinar service provider, no program can be presented.
