The San Francisco Radio Club will participate in the "Amateur Radio Club QSO Party" June 17th-19th 2017. Clubs all over the U.S. are invited to participate in this event created by the South Jersey Radio Assn., the 2nd oldest club in the nation. Report format will include the clubs' age. SJRA & SFRC will be "Bonus" contacts as we will sign with "/101" denoting our 101st year.
This really looks like a fun QSO party and with diminished DX opportunities it gives us another chance to stretch our HF capabilities and warm up for Field Day. Since W6VSF remains in a state of flux, we will rely on several home stations to
represent the club. My QTH will, of course, be offered. I am taking operating time requests now (email@example.com). See the attached documents for details.

A new milestone was reached as SFRC Education and VE Testing teams set out on the weekend of February 10th to provide our first Technician License Class outside of the club. Employees of AMGEN, of South San Francisco, expressed a desire to get their licenses as part of their new emergency response team.
The three-day effort was a complete success as 15 students ( including my wife, Karen) participated in our course and all earned their new license! Congratulations to everyone!
I guess that I will soon have to share my Radio Shack.
