Several members of the Pecos Valley Amateur Radio Club decided on having fun with a planned POTA activation despite a forecasted 90% chance of heavy monsoonal rain. Stacy Pharis, KI5MIT, suggested the event several weeks prior with additional hams coming on board as the August 20th date approached. Then, on that Saturday, with a flood advisory in progress and a light rain falling, a POTA was activated with Gerald Cox, (W0COX), setting up operations at Bottomless Lakes State
The Pecos Valley Amateur Radio Club will conducted a VE testing session on Saturday, October the 8th. Testing will begin at 9:00 AM at the club headquarters at 403 N. Richardson in Roswell. The cost is $35.00 and you must present two forms of government issued ID, or a copy of your current ham radio license if you are upgrading. For questions or more information call Roy at 575.626.3749.
