Ward is an author, editor and active contester. His latest Ham Radio book is Ham Radio for Dummies, 2nd Edition. He is the editor of the ARRL Handbook 2014 (and for several past years) and is the editor for many other ARRL publications, the author of the ARRL License Manuals, several other ARRL books, many QST articles, and writes the popular ARRL e-newsletter "The Contest Update". He does not limit his writing to just technical topics but also writes fiction books.
He will be happy to hear feedback from the other side of the coin, the readers about Ham Radio. Which probably includes almost all of us. Remember we have a large Club Library for members to borrow books from.
There is a little club business but Jerry promises to keep it to a minimum and it is all about fun things.
And Jerry and John Van Sickle will have a variety of equipment on display that you may get a real bargain on. What club members do not want will be going to upcoming Hamfests and eBay. So now is your chance to get such a deal.
Plus there will be a drawing from the Tuesday Night Net Log and if the winner is present they get a free breakfast (up to $10) at the Club's Sunday Breakfast.
Plus some high calorie nourishment to give your sweet tooth (or teeth) a boost. And all the hot coffee you need to keep awake.
As always we will have a 50/50 raffle and a free door prize (or prizes if enough people show up).
Remember all equipment and cash donations to the WPBARG are tax deductible and receipts are available for those who need them.
On Sat March 8th is the Palm Beach Ham Radio Festival at the FOP lodge again (http://www.palmbeachradiofest.com). This is hosted by the Palms West Amateur Radio Club.
On Sat March 15th is the Free Stuart Hamfest (http://www.stuarthamfest.com). That's Free as in no cost to park or get in or have a swap table outside. This is hosted by the Martin County Amateur Radio Association.
Both of these events are well worth attending. Both are very well run and have great prizes. Stuart has a TS-480 as the top prize (prize drawing tickets are not free) and at the Festival they are giving away 10 radios in 5 hours! Plus they will have a grand prize. These are both must attend events if you are a Palm Beach, Broward, or Martin County Ham.
