I wanted to take a moment to thank all who participated. The number of entries was way up from last year, and I could tell from the logs that many who participated did not turn in logs, so it was a very active contest for some. Objective reached: Have Fun!

The San Francisco Auxiliary Communications Service will be hosting free SKYWARN training by the National Weather Service on Tuesday, October 17th from 7-9 pm at the San Francisco Emergency Operations Center. SKYWARN is a program of the United States' National Weather Service to collect reports of localized severe weather. These reports are used to aid forecasters in issuing and verifying severe weather watches and warnings and to improve the forecasting and warning processes and the tools used to collect meteorological data. It consists of a network of severe storm spotters who observe weather conditions and make reports of severe weather to their local NWS offices. More information about the program can be found at https://www.weather.gov/skywarn/.
Please register to attend this training at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/nws-skywarn-training-tickets-38744995324 by Friday, October 13 at 5 pm. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rarely have I asked you for help other than for a club activity. This Saturday (14th) I hope to put the finishing touches on my long anticipated antenna project. Both new antennas and mast are finally in place. All that remains is the rotor installation and I'm back on the air. This will require a few folks to help hoist the mast/antennas up enough to perform this task. I will need at least two more people to help. We get started around 9am; it should not take more than 90 minutes I think. Please drop me an email at: email@example.com if you can help.

Dear ARRL member,
I am writing to you today because we are at a crossroad in our efforts to obtain passage of The Amateur Radio Parity Act.
Our legislative efforts scored a major victory in our campaign when The Amateur Radio Parity Act, S. 1534 now moves to the Senate, where we need every Senator to approve the bill. This is the companion Bill to H.R. 555, which passed in the House of Representatives in January.
You are one of over 730,000 licensed Amateur Radio Operators living in the United States. Many of you already live in deed-restricted communities, and that number grows daily.
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL HAMS TO GET INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS!
• If you want to have effective outdoor antennas but are not currently allowed to do so by your Home Owner’s Association, SEND THESE EMAILS TODAY!!
• If you already have outdoor antennas, but want to support your fellow hams, SEND THESE EMAILS TODAY!!
• If you want to preserve your ability to install effective outdoor antennas on property that you own, SEND THESE EMAILS TODAY!!
We need you to reach out to your Senators TODAY! Right away. Help us in the effort. Please go to this linked website and follow the prompts:

WOW! What a great Field Day. If you missed it, well, there’s always next year. We had great participation, some set-up challenges, a lot of new faces and, of course friendship and good fun. With support from the V.A. we got the tent up and generator online and jumped into the madness of Field Day ops. What struck me as special were the visitors throughout the event! A number of folks dropped by after hearing about our FD effort including Cub Scout Troop 188 and their parents.
Several scouts enthusiastically jumped onto the air via our G.O.T.A. (Get On The Air) station. Once the nerves passed it got easier, especially for Cub Scout Kenneth who not only spent a good amount of time at the mic, but, had to go home only to return with a sleeping bag and spent the night. Real “trooper”, right? In all, despite, poor band conditions, Kenneth made 32 contacts witch gave SFRC 6,400 Points! Great job Kenneth.
