November D.E.A.R.S. Monthly Meeting

Mickey Mouse as Steamboat Willie

The November D.E.A.R.S. Club Meeting and V.E. Test Session will take place on Wednesday November 13, 2019.

V.E. Test Session begins at 5:00 pm

D.E.A.R.S. Club Meeting begins at 6:00 pm

V.E. Test Session will be held at 5 pm at Disney’s Pop Century Cast Services building in the Route 66 conference room and is open to anyone who would like to obtain or upgrade their ham license. This includes all levels of licensing. You do not have to be a D.E.A.R.S Club member to attend the V.E. Test Session or the Club meeting. We invite everyone to attend.

One suggestion from the July general club meeting was to start a tradition of introductions at the start of the meeting. To have some fun with introductions, we will have a slightly different topic for each month. This month will be sharing your radio goal for 2020.

For this meeting we will be hearing from Joe Eisenberg,  K0NEB, via skype to discuss ham radio kits. Joe will also be at Hamcation in February, and that would be a great time to catch up with him if you have any additional questions!

One additional thought: we would love to see everyone at meetings or events. We also would like to invite every member to our monthly board meetings, suggest ideas for upcoming meetings, sharing your feedback, and volunteer for club committees. If you are interested in getting more involved in club activities or have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to any officer!

This month’s meeting will be held at Disney’s Pop Century Cast Services Building. Directions to the location are as follows:
