I've ordered a number of antenna adapters which I will sell to club members at my approximate cost. They can email me at KI5PG@ARRl.net. Probably the most useful adapter for Baofeng handhelds would be the BNC adapter. The second most useful adapter would be the BNC to SO-239 adapter. My cost in these is right at $2.00 a piece.

We have a second New weekly net
Hi Fellow VARC Members & friends,
I would like to invite you to join me every Sunday, at 6:30 pm on the 145.190 W5DSC repeater for a controlled net, Sunday Musings. Each Sunday could have a different topic for discussion, I am open for ideas. Hope to hear you on the air.
