Do you want to feel like life still exists in Lake Havasu City in the summertime?
Well, that is what this is all about.
Summer School for Hams!

If you feel this is something you might want to attend sometime, everytime, or this is not for you on the hot summer day, this is what we would like to know. Our meeting place will be the Library where it is cool inside while it maybe hot ouside during our summer months. We will discuss a logging program to keep your precious contacts neatly tucked away. Building a dipole for the
40 meter band. Setting up a PSK station so you can go digital. Look at the many cool ham programs out there on the internet. Learn how to program that HT of yors. The list will grow as ideas come in.

If you feel this might be worth trying 
​as one once said​,
 nothing tried is nothing gained.
​ Give me your feedback, please.​
