Intro to amateur radio presentation

 

A Basic ‘What is Amateur radio’ presentation was held at the Gulf Coast Amateur Radio Club’s club house on Sunday. 03-11-2018. A non-ham Florida club “Florida III% Patriots” was in attendance. For the past couple of months I have assisted on helping members get licensed by getting them Tech manuals from A.R.R.L. We now have 3 new hams. Two techs and a General.
