  1. AK4AO

    Auction 2021

    With Winterfest cancelled in 2020 and 2021, the club had accumulated over 400 items of ham gear through donations and consignment. In order to liquidate this inventory, we conducted an online auction in June of 2021. On July 10 a fulfillment team met at the club's storage facility to retrieve and deliver approximately 300 items purchased at auction.
  2. VWS will not host our usual Field Day event at Burke Lake Park this year due to concern for safety during the pandemic. Members are encouraged to operate individually or form teams and to name Vienna Wireless Society as their club when submitting scores. We have mentors available to help with your Field Day questions. Please post them here or e-mail to FD@viennawireless.net.

At our 10 January 2020 meeting said thank you to three outstanding club officers who are stepping down this year: Terry Lowe as Treasurer, Howard Benton as Vice President, and Bill Mims as President. You can see their Certificates of Appreciation here. Please give them a Like, add a comment, or add your own photo of their adventures.
  13. At the 10 January 2020 meeting we celebrated Pete Hadley's service to the club for over a decade as Chairman of the Board of Directors, President, Vice President, and the man who does so many things beyond those job descriptions. His award included a digital picture frame with the photos initially uploaded to this album. Please help celebrate Pete's service by adding your own pictures from work with Pete. When we get a bunch, we'll download them to his frame. You can also add a note for Pete by commenting.
