What do you like best about the programs at your local club's meetings? Please explain your choice!
[236 votes since 2017-09-12]
  I don't attend them or don't belong to a local club.
  I attend but they don't (regularly) have programs.
  Technical topics like propagation, electronics, antennas, etc.
  Operating topics like how to contest, make DX or satellite QSOs, or handle message traffic.
  Topics specifically for license upgrading.
  I don't like (the) programs.

Spotlight N0AH
N0AH Station is finally noise controlled with addition of Icom 756 Pro III. I use my Yaesu FT-847 for VHF/UHF and I have an MA5B beam at 40 feet for 10-20M and a pair of MA8040Vs in an array for 40/80M. Having an Alpha 99 helps!
