The 220 MHz guys are about getting together both on the air, and in person.
Our Saturday Morning Breakfast Meet and Greet! -- Please feel free to come out and join us sometime. Our Meet and Greet Breakfasts are held every Saturday, starting around 8:00 a.m. at P.J. Klems Restaurant, located at 8000 W. Ogden, in sunny Lyons, IL. The restaurant has ample, free parking. We are in an area of the restaurant that gives us a feeling of privacy. Just ask the hostess/host where the Ham Radio Breakfast is, and you will be directed. (Some people have been known to extend their stay into lunch, dinner, and even check into our 9:00 Original Preservation Net from here. But we won't name names.)
Some nice weather days, we go out and do a little fishing at the Hofmann Dam located just behind P.J. Klems. (Don't forget to bring your rods & reels.)
You do not need to be a member to come out and join us. But if you are curious about getting your amateur radio license, or already have one, and are looking for a great bunch of "hams" to elbow bend with, look no further. We'll be pleased to meet you!
Our annual, Post-Holiday Party! Always held the first Sunday in January. The 2019 date was January 6th, 2019, at 1:00 pm, and was once again held at Vince's Restaurant and Pizzeria, located at 6217 W. 63rd Street, Chicago. Always a delicious buffet, along with a great bunch of hams! (HiHi) There was a raffle, and this year’s big winner was Laura Plecki (KD9EID) who won the 8-watt, dual band, BaoFeng hand-held radio.
Please keep an eye on our calendar, during the season, for updates and information.
