There are a couple of activities being considered for the traditional Friday afternoon outing, with the frontrunner being a special tour and presentation at the US Naval Academy, which has a pedestrian entry gate just a few blocks down Maryland Avenue from the Governor Calvert House of the Historic Inns.

In addition, we’re contemplating an ARRL Field Day activity local to our meeting. If you would be interested in coordinating this (or helping), please contact me directly. I will try to find the green space needed for equipment setup and help in any way that I can. If this planning gets some traction, we can include more information in future announcements to solicit additional participation.
