July Meeting will be skipped – HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! See you August 1st, 2020
Heartfelt Condolences to the families of these of members of our local amateur radio community:
John Bridwell KB5VVJ — SK
RC Harkness K5ORC — SK
RC Harkness, K5ORC, passed away April 7, 2020. RC was an active member of PARC for many years. It was his mission to Elmer as many people as he could to become ham radio operators and he provided many folks with study materials for the technician level, mostly those he met at the Amarillo Public Library. We appreciate Lloyd AD5EZ letting us know. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and his friends.
Charles Seitz WA5PEO — SK
