  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.
