Greetings FRC members and friends,

Our next Fullerton Radio Club Zoom meeting will be held tonight, Wednesday 3/2 at 8 pm.

To provide a little focus for tonight’s discussion, I would ask that we discuss the following topics:

• Please tell us one topic that you would be interested in exploring / learning more about.

• The last time that you were “on the air,” what band and mode were you using?

• What suggestions do you have for making our Zoom meetings more enjoyable for you?
