Deal On Dual Band Transceivers.
Great Deal on a Dual Band Mobile Transceiver receives on 2 meters and on 70 cm. It has power levels of 5 and 25 watts. The transceiver is very compact Club member, Chuck, N9LVY used this radio while providing communications for the MS 150 bike event. Chuck said the radio worked flawlessly, but itís a good idea to program it beforehand with software, because itís not that easy to program out in the field.
WM9Y is selling the transceivers for $89.00. Thanks Chuck for the information regarding the radio and for your participation with the MS 150.At the October club meeting, K9MCE members were offered a great deal on one of the Chinese made dual band transceivers.

W9NMS Participates in SCR

SCR, known as School Club Roundup is a fun way to introduce students to the lifetime fun of radio sport. The idea is to get as many school clubs as possible to make contacts on the air with as many stations as possible. School contacts count for the most points, followed by ham clubs and then individual contacts. SCR took place over the 19-23 October and four North Mac Middle School

students participated in the roundup. Unfortunately, Com-Tech Club sponsor, Debbie, KC9ULA was only able to devote two days after school towards the roundup. During those two days, three students had their first exposure to HF radio and two students earned their ďFirst Contact Award!Ē W9NMS was on for two afternoons and made 10 QSOs, with 42 multipliers for a claimed score of 420 pts. States worked : TX, VA, FL, SC, OH, NJ and Quebec. The next SCR will be Feb. 8-12, 2016
