Mentor Fest 2020 - New Date October 17, 2020

ARRLNTX Mentor Fest has now been rescheduled and details have been posted at the website.  We are very hopeful that by October we are able to have gatherings and proceed with Mentor Fest, but remain flexible for any change.

We appreciate any and all Speaker commitments and should have the schedule block is opened back up.

Mentor Fest is only a success with Presenters on various Topics.

I will Not hold anyone's feet to the fire if they commit and back out later. If you have a topic that you may like to present or if you have any concerns, please call me at 318-470-9806 or better yet drop me an email KG5VK@ARRL.ORG

Club Video Conferencing

I am available to speak with your clubs via Video Conferencing. This past month I visited with two different clubs, with Video Conferencing tools and can do the same for your ARRL affiliated club. Just like Face to Face meetings, I still arrive providing door prizes.  

To schedule me at your next virtual club meeting, just ask one of your club officers to contact me.

ARRL Field Day Plans

I would like to hear about your club's ARRL FD plans - what is your team planning? Are you promoting members work FD from their home or back yard or something entirely different?

Are any clubs planning remote use of one station with rotating virtual seats "in front" of the radio?
