April 27, 2024 Tailgate

The W4DHN Spring Tailgate was Saturday, April 27, 2024 at the Headland Park Square in Headland, Alabama. Starting about 8am and continuing till about noon, we had some great folks show up and display some of their items for sale (or trade). Testing started at 10am with a total of 11 attendees and 14 tests given. Congratulations to all that passed!  We had a W4DHN members lunch at noon with the grand prize drawing happening as well. There were also hourly drawings for other prizes. The weather was delightful (not too hot and not muggy)… Did I mention all the great people that came out?

Thank you to everyone that came out and made it a very successful event and fun get together.

Thank you, Greg for coming up and bringing Suzy the amazing mascot!

W4DHN Club Meeting 4.4.24

Our W4DHN monthly club meeting for April was on the 4th at 6:30pm in the American Red Cross Building on Montezuma Avenue in Dothan. We had 18 attendees. Bob Johannesen gave a presentation on our telescoping movable antenna. We discussed the upcoming tailgate April 27th in Headland on the Square. There will be a testing session as well that day. The 2024 Tri-States Bike Ride will be June 1st.  This is a great time to get out and put our skills to use for our community.  We discussed the repeater issue and tabled that for a later meeting. Our President, Rex Yance, is dedicated to getting committees filled and functional.

If you are a member, please come to the club meetings and be involved.  If you have a topic you would like information on, please send a post to the Groups.I.O. so we can find someone who is a guru on it and possibly have a presentation on it at the meeting.  There are lots of very intelligent and electronically gifted folks in our club!  It’s always a benefit to learn more information and the new trends on Ham Radio.  Technology waits for no one.
