Info on new meeting location

I met with Robert Byard, KK4VCI, who secured the location for the Club's 2014 meetings. The directions to the Church is located on their website and they describe it better than I can. Highway 54 is a one-way street with east (coming from PTC) on one side of the Church and west on the other side. Once you get close to the Church, depending on the direction you are coming from, get on 54 East and continue past the city square to Melissa Segars street. Turn left onto Melissa Segars. The map below shows where you can park and enter the building. One entry is close to the small parking lot, which has handicap spaces. The other entry is across the street from the large parking lot. We will meet in room C-260. If you have any questions please ask. READ MORE for a map.

Skywarn Recognition Day 2013

Even though our overall numbers were down from previous years, we still made a lot of contacts and had a lot of fun. One of the biggest reasons our numbers were down was we were taking a lot more time talking with various Hams about the effects of the winter storms. One Ham in north central Texas told of 4-5 inches of ice, that's right, ice, still on State highways in his area. Others spoke of the warming trend from double-digit negative temperatures to just single-digit negative temps. Snow + Sleet + Ice + Cold.
