It is with a solemn heart that I announce the passing of one of our own. Yesterday, Bob Hagans W4SOG passed away peacefully in Hospice.
Today, I spoke with his granddaughter and she shared some wonderful stories with me that I will share with all of you at our meeting this Wednesday, where we will also honor Bob for his service to this country and our community.
Last year, Bob was an Honor Flight recipient, an award given to distinguish members of our community who served our country in the armed forces.
Bob’s inurnment will be in Bonifay Florida, but a service will be held here locally. When that is known, we will announce it here.
We will open a topic for discussion and future information here – https://wpbarg.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=862
Our monthly meeting, held on the fourth Wednesday of the month, is Wednesday, August 23, 2023, at 7:00 p.m.

We welcome all to our meetings and activities, whether licensed or not!

As the news of fires in Hawaii continues to develop and the death toll is approaching one hundred, with property damage currently over five billion, the people in Hawaii are in our thoughts and prayers. Below are some frequencies you can monitor (see note below).
7.088 SSB – Nets
More information on the Nets are here – https://www.konaweb.com/net/
Note: FCC rules permit SSB operation below 7100 (7.075 – 7.100) outside of the continental US (ITU 1,3 and FCC Region 2 West of 130° West or below 20° North).* Here, we are permitted a portion of frequencies (7.025 – 7.125) for CW, but please leave them open and do not transmit on them for now.

For folks considering financial donations, I would encourage you to vet the organization before donating. My go-to organization for many years continues to be Direct Relief. If you’ve not heard of Direct Relief, that’s likely because none of their donations are spent on fundraising. – https://www.directrelief.org/
