Facebook is traffic low, but that’s OK. Currently about 73 ‘followers’ with frequent submissions from Roberto (WA9E). We did not publicize the Technician Class on the SARC page because it was apparent that we would get full registration from the Daily Herald article & calendar listing. We will publish the General Class.
John Douglas KD9KSH reported nothing will be planned for the next few months.
