Due to the unavailability of the only meeting room that has been found in central Calvert County on the FIRST Thursdays of the month and that the SECOND Thursdays are now reserved for the use of Calvert Amateur Radio Club at Harriet E Brown Community Center on E Dares Beach Road (formerly SMECO Building).
Dale KC3RKP, Andy KC3WRX and Erik KC3QQD set up shop and the Fairgrounds in Prince Frederick to play radio while promoting the club. Thank you to all three.
