Handiham World Update for October 6, 2022

We have an exciting announcement about the 2023 Radio Camp. From September 6 through September 13, 2023,
Handiham Radio Camp-Metro Edition will be held right here in Minneapolis at the same hotel we used for the 2018 Assistive Technology and Amateur Radio Conference. We will be making several field trips during the week to operate radios and visit local attractions, and we want everyone to join us for very special week filled with hands-on ham radio activities.

The Handiham.org website members only section is back up and running as of Tuesday evening. If you tried to access the site between September 30 and October 4, you would have been unable to log in. We apologize for the difficulties!

We have a new AllStar node number. Please use node 473670 to connect to the Handiham nets. The Handiham Radio Club sponsors nets at 11:00 am Central time and on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm Central time. We are so thankful to Barry, K9AMO, our net manager, and look forward to talking to everyone on the nets.

The basic Morse code class just finished week 2 this week. The students are studying hard to learn the language of Morse code. If you want to join this class, please contact Pemdy to be put on a list for an application. Classes include weekly interactive sessions over Zoom along with practice recordings to help students gain mastery of their new language. If you already know your letters, numbers, and prosigns, we will be holding an intermediate level Morse code class starting in February that will help you increase your speed from around five words per minute to around 13 words per minute.

The 24 week Technician Class starts next Wednesday, October 12. This is one week earlier than planned due to class being cancelled for October 26th. If you are not already signed up for this class and still want to join us, please contact Pemdy right away. Classes are held using the Zoom platform, and handouts and class recordings will be provided each week to help students with their studies.

The Handiham Radio Club is getting radio active! Look for more information to come about regular monthly meetings via Zoom and ways for you to get involved in the club. If you have not yet joined the Handiham Radio Club, all members of the Handiham Program are eligible to join. Just let Pemdy know you want to be put on the email list for the club so you can keep up with everything that is happening.

Thank you,

Lucinda and Pemdy
