**** New FCC License Fees ***
The new $35.00 FCC license fees went into effect on 19 Apr 2022. Administrative changes (email, address, etc.) do not incur a fee.
Hamfest in 2023?
Do you have extra gear to sell? Are there holes on the shelves in your ham shack that are screaming to be filled? Interested in eyeball QSO's? If you answered yes to any of those questions, Jose, Joe or Giff want to hear from you and get your ideas. Let us know what you think!
Please send meeting training/discussion topics to Joe (AB1YO) or Giff (K1GAH) so we can get them included in the agenda. If you've researched a particular facet of HAM radio or have a presentation you'd like to share, we'd like to know about it. Want to get into Raspberry Pi but don't know where to start? Several of us have them and can cover the basics. Have a favorite antenna design? Tell us about it!

The next exam session is at the end of April in Warren. See the chart below for testing time. The address is Warren Sanitary District, 442 Cushing Rd (Route 97), Warren, ME 04864. Map it at: https://goo.gl/maps/eVQLyhEfPJeNERQu8. If you haven't been there before, turn left at what looks like the farm. There is a small sign on the west side of Rt-97 at the turn.
