What do you like best about the programs at your local club's meetings? Please explain your choice!
[242 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.

    Shack Showcase PY9FP- AFFILIATED STATIONS
    PY9FP- AFFILIATED STATIONS Here is a new QSL card design. The station is effective and fun, it consists of QRP/MFJ cub, ICOM718, VEC 1240-k, VEC1140-K. Special interest is always in homebrew QRP rigs and antennas, and always working on new projects, keeping my amateur radio hobby a great source of education and fun. Multi band vertical antenna and MFJ dipole antenna for 20 meters band. I spend a lot of time in the shack, and I have made it as comfortable as I can. I am honored having AI2IA , Ray as my Elmer and special friend. I am QRP enthusiastic, and thanks for my Elmer Ray. If you would like to set a time to make contact on 40 or 20 meters band, please email me at the address in my eHam or QRZ profile. Cheers and good DXs, es Vy72/73
