My name is Jeff Lapin and I have been a club member since early 2016 and a ham from April of the same year. I came across the club at a local event and was fascinated with what I saw and heard. Robert Garland, NS3X was the club president at the time and invited me to the next meeting… the rest is history, i fell hard for the hobby.
i am lucky enough to have not one, but 4 or 5 “Elmers” in the club. They have answered a multitude of my questions leading me to my general ticket. the club is small but full of great people, who are very knowledgeable and always willing to lend a hand and share incites into this great hobby.
i am the current president and happy to be so. If you are reading this I am guessing you are either a ham already or a curious onlooker interested in getting involved. Please let me take this opportunity to invite you to one of our meetings or to contact the club.
