was very good to see Mr. John!!

June 3---Relay for Life---operators needed for station manning. Ron will be
there with WFHC-FM remote, but needs ops for a simple ham station at that
tent. Several club members volunteered, will finalize list as the date
June 11---Swap Fest---the "Burkhead Bunch" (!) will man the registration
desk, and also set up a 2 meter station for talk-ins, and will help man that
station. Richard will attend to the concession procurement. Honor system
for concession purchases. Need club members to assist with table set-up,
etc., at the Sports Arena on June 10, at around 3:00 PM.
June 25-26---Field Day---Club voted to do Field Day at Chickasaw State Park
this year. Further details at next meeting (June 16).

Joe, AG4QC, introduced a great project idea for the Club, to build some
small regenerative receivers for certain ham band/s, and possibly a QRP
xmitter to match. Kits are available, and would be a great idea, especially
for Club members, etc., who have not had the opportunity to dabble in ham
radio construction very much. Joe will have more info for the Club soon.
Sounds good!
