With an eye on the future of San Francisco Radio Club, I am excited to congratulate Nick Powell NF1P on becoming President for 2018. I know that he and the newly elected Board will continue to safeguard the history and traditions of our esteemed organization while we continue to grow into the 21st century.
I am looking back at the ten years that I have had the honor of serving as your President. My first year (1984) was certainly a learning experience, considering that I was only licensed in 1981. I took a long hiatus from radio (1990-2008). I am not sure why, but, I came back to my senses in 2008, returning to the club and helping out as Secretary. At the time it seemed to me that participation was at a low and when given the nod to, once again, serve as President I made it my goal to restore involvement. My vision for the SFRC included expanding our presence in the community, forming an education base and empowering our members to truly feel that this is their club. It has been and always will be an organization driven by your combined effort and ideas.
Over these years I have been blessed with some gifted and inspired members of our Board of Directors. Additionally, having a few of them repeat as Directors and Officers has helped establish a consistent formula that successfully maintains the programs and services we offer and allow for continued growth.

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!

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: firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
