The meeting will be December 8th (the second Saturday – as always) at the Davis County Sheriffs Office meeting room. Enter from the Northwest parking lot. 


December is our final club meeting for the year and as always we hold elections for club officers, show off homebrew projects and have our Pre-Christmas radio raffle and give away.  

If you would like to serve as an officer please contact one of the current officers or just show up and give an idea (short speech) to the members of what you would like to do.

Bring your homebrew project and show off your creativity.  These have always been helpful to members of our club and who knows what someone else will create because of your idea.

This year we will raffle a Yeasu  FTM 3207D that can be used with our new repeaters and we will give away a Yeasu FT-70DR/DE. Tickets are two for $5.00 or five for $10.00.


As always you are invited to the get-together before the meeting at the Golden Coral in Layton at 8 AM.
