The monthly RATS Membership Meeting is this Friday, March 15 at 7:30 PM on Zoom.

Minutes for the last RATS meeting (February 16) have been posted to for membership review and approval at this week's meeting.

If you missed last month's presentations on the Virginia QSO Party and QRP operations, you can find those videos at  See Part 2 for the VA QSO Party, and Part 3 for QRP.

This month we'll be discussing our upcoming club activity:  The Virginia QSO Party at Laurel Park.  We will also discuss the upcoming club elections and solicit volunteers for the Nominating Committee.

Steve Crow KG4PEQ will give a presentation on various non-ham personal radio services.  In particular, we will take a look at the capabilities and benefits of the General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) which has enjoyed a surge in popularity over the last few years.  And we'll briefly cover a few other Part 95 services you might want to include in your well-equipped communications toolbox.  There will be plenty of opportunity for Q&A after the meeting.

The club is currently looking for presenters at the April meeting and beyond.  If there's some topic you'd like to talk about or a presenter you'd like to see, get in touch with our Program Committee,
