This is definitely my favorite time of year. What’s not to love about college football, the gorgeous colors in the fall foliage, and the annual Thanksgiving holiday with parades, foods, family and friends? There is also quite a bit happening in amateur radio. Be sure to look through the details listed below.
Have a great month!
