3.994.5 HF Net has moved to the 4th Mondays of the month

Ready to learn CW? A number of members are in the process of learning CW.  We are also going to be building a 3W CW transceiver.  The total cost will be about $35 and is due in the October meeting.  The build night will be scheduled in November or January.  KD7QOT is coordinating the build and WA3PRR is coordinating CW training.  The build will include the transceiver, a basic CW key, and possibly a dipole antenna.
