Club Teams

Need a Station or Band captain to manage planning for each operating station.

One person should not have to do it all, recommend that club members JOIN a station team.

Anyone is free to operate any station at any time it’s available, but some scheduling might keep the station up and making points more efficiently.

If you want to work on antennas, or other items, and you’re not a station captain, volunteer, you can still help.
