A Busy Weekend For LARC

Steve Warnic passed his Technicians test this morning. He is seen here being congratulated by Bill KJ4IAI and Ernie, KG4YNI.

Only hours later, Steve is seen here chatting with Ren KG4BAS at the Polk County Hurricane 2011 Expo. Ren is flanked by his two children and fellow hams, Gabby KK4ASD and Ansel KJ4ZRU.
