Forum – “The Worldwide microchip Shortage” Steve, KO4KGS will discuss the causes, effects, issues and long range outlook of the current microchip shortage. He will reveal the reasons why we can’t buy an IC-7300, FT-991A’s, or for that matter new cars or home appliances due to the supply chain issues. Time: 7:00-7:30 pm
Main Program -- “Shut Down and Called Up – Hams in the Great War” Chris, W2PA, an engineer and Ham Radio Historian will visit us from New York, and share an interesting story of ham radio before, during, and after World War I. Hams were put off the air by the government, even required to dismantle their stations, in an environment of enforcement and suspicion. QST ceases publication. But the need for radio operators was so great that many volunteered as military operators. As the war ended, everyone needed to be re-licensed, and the League needed a jump start. Hams managed to accomplish this while waiting for the long-delayed reopening and fighting threats of restrictive new regulation. Time: 7:30 -9:00 pm
