Elmer_U is the Montgomery Amateur Radio Club’s mentoring initiative and, of course, in the Ham Radio community, mentoring is called Elmering. We like to conduct these sessions in a casual, hands-on environment. We are focusing on HF, ssb (phone) operations. But we are not limiting ourselves to that genre. We are also relatively fluent in CW and VHF/UHF procedures. We do not lecture. We discuss and pass along out past experiences, triumphs and failures.

There will be an Elmer_U session this Saturday, 29 August 1:00 p.m. in the MARC Radio Station, at the Red Cross building. Come to the left side entrance. We will be monitoring the 146.84 and 444.45 repeaters. You may also contact me on my cell at: 652-9055. Please drop me an email if you plan to attend: Don’t be shy, give it a try! See you Saturday.

Saturday, Sep 19, 2015
The run will begin and end at the train station in downtown Montgomery and will follow the same route as the Enlisted Heritage Hall's run (turns around near the MPD station). I have agreed to head up this effort and I need 4 or 5 volunteers to assist. The race will start at 7:00 AM so we will be home by 9:00 AM or so. Thanks for supporting our community and Air Force!
