**** NEW NOTICE ****  (09/18/2021)
Due to the significant increase in COVID-19 Delta Variant cases in our area and the high hospitalization rate  and very few ICU beds available, we are once again going to have our monthly general membership  meetings "
ON-THE-AIR" again.
The Third Thursday General Monthly Meetings are going to be conducted on-air only on our 145.19 or the 145.13 backup repeater until advised otherwise due to the number of new Covid-Variant cases being reported in our Crossroads area.


Next General Meeting is on October 21st, 2021.
