On Tuesday, Feb. 11th, we will have our monthly meeting at the Hopkinton library, on Houston St. in Hopkinton.
The meeting will highlight an emergency communications forum presented by Rob Farley, k1cfi.
Rob will discuss ARES (the amateur radio emergency service) and will be accompanied by others. Cars, (the capital area repeater society) will also be discussed. Others will also join that conversation.
Rob is extremely well qualified to discuss these activities, especially based on his many years as a professional in this area.
Many of us will join up at Dimitri’s, around 6:00 pm for dinner, prior to the meeting which starts around 7 to 7:30 pm.
