As we enter the new year, I’m reminded  of a quote my faculty adviser kept posted on his wall: “We are surrounded by insurmountable opportunity.” Opportunities abound at OVH for programs, projects, and people. Based on your inputs, here are some ideas for programs and projects. I’ve added a couple of threads (links) to tug on for each so you can explore them further online.

(5) 6 and 10 meter FM and Digital Anyone interested in exploring the acres of unused RF spectrum there for mobile,portable, and emergency use? Interested in giving a presentation or chairing a working group in any of these areas? Let me know and I’ll add you to the schedule.
How about an opportunity to add your new energy and fresh ideas to OVH leadership? You can toss you hat into the ring at the January meeting when we put together the club officers slate for our annual February election. January’s meeting will be a busy one as we assemble the slate and vote on a number of important issues. Hope to see you there!
