Busy radio weekend with a meeting and a ham fest 

This weekend Skyview Radio Society will hold their annual ham fest. You are all invited and it promises to be a good time. Held at the club grounds on Turkey Ridge Road in New Kensington there will be lots of space for parking and tail gaiting. In addition you can come early and have breakfast at the clubs pavilion behind the main club house with Radio Free Bob (aka WC3O) acting as master chef. There is always something good to eat at a Skyview ham fest.

While you are there make sure you stop in and look at the recent remodeling that has been done to the club house itself. If you have ever visited before I think you will be truly astounded at what the members have done with the place. It looks great! Don’t forget while you are there to buy some tickets to help support the club. They have to run on as shoe string budget and the members kick in a lot of “sweat equity” not to mention dues and occasional “out of pocket” contributions when something is needed for the facility.

So come on out, enjoy the day and help support one of the areas great ham radio clubs. Visit the Skyview Radio Society web site for additional details and directions to the club.

Before the ham fest though, this Saturday will be the monthly meeting of the Three Rivers Area Monitoring Association. The meeting starts at 09:00 AM at Emerson Process Management located at 200 Beta Drive in the RIDC Industrial Park in O'Hara Township. For those that are early risers some of us will meet for breakfast before the meeting at Kings Family Restaurant in Water Works Plaza on old Rt. 28 just north of the Highland Park Bridge. We usually arrive around 07:30 AM and have a meeting of the oblong table prior to the official meeting at nine. So come and join in on the fun.
