There will be a Technician Training Class given by Ken Robinson and Ross Leedy, starting May 2nd. It will last from 6 o’clock until 8 o’clock.
It will continue on each Tuesday night for 5 to 6 weeks so everyone will be ready to take the exam. The only fees are the $15.00 exam fee.
The class will be held in the Church of Latter Day Saints in Stambaugh, KY. Turn onto Rt 1559 across from W.R Castle Elementary School. The church
is up that road about a quarter+ mile on the left.
If anyone wishes to enroll or needs more information, they should call
Ken Robinson (606-769-0265) or Ross Leedy (606-483-1115).
Many people have brought up that they dislike the plain KY Ham license plate and wish something distinctive and proud to use.

Steve entered the hobby of Amateur Radio in 1969 as WN4NHO and then in 1970 received his General with the callsign of WB4NHO and currently a licensed Extra with a callsign W4NHO. From that point he was involved with local Owensboro Amateur Radio Club (OARC). The club gave him a strong background in emergency communications. His club provided safety communications for Hydroplane racing on the Ohio River for many years. They also provided communications for Civil Defense and responded with call outs regarding weather, drownings, lost persons, down aircraft, blizzards, floods and working with the Red Cross in providing damage assessment.
During the involvement with public service Steve entered traffic handling mainly through the KY CW traffic net and 9RN. He also enjoys operating FD with the local club manning the CW station and at times the phone station. He is also involved many of the different digital modes and participates in the weekly KDN net.
He had the opportunity to serve the Red Cross after 911 in NYC for approximately 2 months setting up computers and communications. From there he served on numerous disasters in the state of Kentucky and throughout the US and the Virgin Islands in Damage Assessment and DIST operations.
Steve also serves in the MARS program for over 18 years.
His first love is public service and has held numerous field appointments with the league, ORS, EC, DEC, SEC, ASST. DIR., VE and SM ( 1991-1997). He enjoys working with fellow amateurs in the state in many different areas. He hopes that amateurs can continue making the hobby strong and enjoyable for all across Kentucky.
Steve currently lives in Owensboro with his wife Mia.
2017 ARRL Field Day PSAs are now live at www.arrl.org/field-day
There are two audio and two video PSAs. All are 29 seconds long. There is a “generic” version, which points listeners/viewers to the ARRL Field Day web site, to use the Field Day Locator. There is also a version which allows local contact info. For the audio PSA, there’s 11 seconds at the end for you to promote your club’s effort. The video PSA features a text box at the bottom of the screen to type in your club contact info.
Best of luck with your Field Day outreach efforts this year!
