OVH Holiday Party will be on Sunday, December 11th at Yorkshire Restaurant. This is a family event; please bring a covered dish to share. In addition, we will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for the Toys For Tots campaign. We have been approved to have 2 Marines attend our party!

Thanks to John, KG4NXT for providing the program at last month’s club meeting.

Tri It Now Mini Tri – the last event was the end of October and several club members came out and provided radio communications for this event. Photo in newsletter of those attending. Shout out to Andy, KJ4MTP, as he took on the responsibility of this event back in December of 2016. Andy has worked with the race coordinator to get the maps and schedules, as well as reaching out for each event for volunteers. The Mini Tri is not a one and done for the year, they have 5 or 6 events every year. Great job Andy!

POTA – Several club members are participating in Parks on the Air. For anyone interested in more info check out Parks on the Air | POTA. You can also request information at the club meeting or on the email reflector.

Beginning on in the new year on January 1, 2023 Andrea / KI4SXM will be taking over the Sunshine Corner. Many thanks to Andrea for taking this on! Please send all of your information each month for this column to her at and give her
your full support. It has been my great pleasure reporting OVH club information in the Sunshine Corner for the last 15 years.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our club members and their families!
