President's Corner

September 2018

August proved to be a sad moth for the Amateur radio community in Johnson County. First there was the tragic accident that took the life of Lon's grandson. Then we heard of the passing of Jack Holzer, WØYZS, on August 27. Jack was a big supporter of Amateur Radio and, in particular, our Club. His donations of items to our annual auction were a big part of its success. Jack ended his professional public service career last year when he retired from the Johnson County Sheriff's department and Emergency Management and Communications after 27 years. I had the opportunity to hear of his experiences in the “Tin Can Navy” as he served on a destroyer. My brother also served on destroyers, so I have a few of his stories that I shared with Jack.

A few big public service events that will be occurring in September. Hopefully you can find the time to volunteer for at least one of these events. Look up Larry's List for the events. Ted will be looking for volunteer tour guides for Ensor. Please sign up for one of the slots. It only a few hours on a Saturday or Sunday.

The Ensor auction planning is under way along with other activities. We have not been able to nail down the dates. Look through your shack for that items looking for a new home.
