During COVID, we’re meeting the first Friday of the month at 7:00 pm on-the-air on our club repeater at 146.72 MHz (see Club Repeater sidebar). Early check-in starts at 6:30 with a roll call of members first. When we meet physically, we’ll meet at the Norkenzie Christian Church, 2530 Crescent Ave., Eugene, Oregon.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
