2011 Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Cycle for Life

This past Saturday I worked a public service event with my club, Anne Arundel Radio Club, in conjunction with Calvert Amateur Radio Association. The event was a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Cycle for Life bike event, and this particular one in Calvert County was a first time event. We were first informed of the event about 2 weeks in advance, so we had very little time to go from nothing to up and running.

Getting Back to Ham Radio

After a rather long hiatus, I’ve decided to get back into ham radio. For the past couple of years I’ve been absent from the hobby, but Hurricane Irene and the value of my HT in getting information both from amateur and commercial sources reminded me how much I enjoy it. So I’ve renewed my ARRL membership, reconnected with my local club, and tonight I’m headed to a club meeting. It’s good to be back.
