    The club was contacted by the estate of K8SGI. They are having an estate sale on March 5, 6 and 7. As part of the sale there are a number of ham radio items that some of you may be interested in.

    February 2020 QST has erroneously listed the LARC Swap on their Hamfest Calendar for Feb. 23.

    This has caused some doubt and confusion, with a few individuals and vendors apparently thinking the event is back on.

    As announced some time ago, the Livonia ARC 2020 swap event was, and remains, cancelled.

    Please pass this information along to anyone who might have planned to take part.

    Thanks, 73.

    We are sad to report that Linda - KB8TOO experienced a devastating house fire on Monday 01/13/2020. Our thoughts are with her as her and her family begin the process of putting things back together. Everyone is fine. 

    It is still very early in the process. There will be many opportunities for us to provide Linda support. At this time please direct any questions you may have to the club officers. Many of us are already in touch with her and will help to organize efforts to provide her with the assistance she needs. 

    We will provide more information as we get it. 

    Thank you and 73 - KD8HFX

    It is with a heavy and shocked heart that i inform W8MRM and WY8DOT of the passing of

    Alan "AL" Adams. KD8LZW

    Al was one of the people on our 2 meter net that you just knew would be there with a kind word and occasional signal report from Lincoln Park :-)

    Al served our country, enjoyed antique Motorcycles, antique radios and Ham Radio along with many other things which kept him busy until his health sidelined those activity's. but he still checked in on Tuesday night....

    I received an email from Al's son Jim with the news.

    "This is a difficult note to write, but the communication is necessary.

    This is Jim Adams, son of Allan Adams KD8LZW. I must unfortunately report

    that my Father has passed away from complications of bladder cancer. He passed quietly while in hospice care at 11:07 PM Christmas Eve.

    Before he passed, he asked me to try to contact John Roberts and report

    that his most recent Net check-in would probably be his last.

    He took pride in making consistent check-ins on Tuesday evening, and was a

    life long radio enthusiast.

    He also wanted to wish all the membership of the 2-Meter net a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year".

    Even in his final hours he was thinking of others and his 2 meter net family

    You will be truly missed Al.. 73's from your W8MRM and WY8DOT, 2 meter net family..

    This link is to his Obituary you will definitely want to read it..
