Saturday, November 27th, will be the next Zoom Gathering. We will focus on gratitude for this event. Pemdy will send out the invitation several days ahead of time, so be sure to hang onto that email to join in the fun and fellowship.
Thanks to the help of several dedicated volunteers, work is being done on the Handiham AllStar node. Stay tuned for updates.
The Handiham Program office will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday break from November 24th through the 26th.
We held our seventh class in the 2021 Basic Morse Code course tonight. The students are studying hard, making good use of the practice recordings they receive each week. We only have a couple more numbers to add, and the class will know all the characters. Next, students will focus on improving copy using QSOs. They will also start practicing sending Morse code.
Wednesday will be the eighth class in the General Class course. This week is the first of two classes covering antennas. With cramming all the material into a 12 week course, our students have a lot of information to cover for each class!
If you are interested in the Intermediate Morse Code class or the Extra Class license course, we are planning to run both next year. You can reach out to Pemdy to get your name on the lists for an application when they are ready. Because of everything we have to cover for the Extra Class, that course will run a full 16 weeks, so keep that time commitment in mind. The Morse code class will be 13 weeks long.
We hope you have a great week,
Lucinda and Pemdy
