Look for the new CPREG Net on every Wednesday night at 7:00 PM. (Note the new time.) It will be on the WY7SHR club repeater: 147.255 (+) PL 100Hz. The repeater is in it’s new hilltop location and is already working better than it has. Give it a try!

CPREG Winter Field Day – January 26, 2019 Meet at 10:00 AM in Washington Park, Covered Picnic Area #2 (East side of Little Goose Creek).

Bring hot drinks, though Ron might bring a camp stove and water to make hot chocolate, coffee, tea, etc. Depending on how many people we have, we might take a collection and order a pizza. We can coordinate efforts on the Wednesday, January 23 night net (see above).
