YES!!! You read it right…the Lakeland Amateur Radio Club is meeting again. The Aerospace Center for Excellence has graciously invited us to meet at the Florida Air Museum at Sun & Fun. For September and October we’ll be meeting under their outdoor pavilion adjacent to the museum. Here are the specifics:
Location: Florida Air Museum, 4175 Medulla Rd, Lakeland FL 33811 (on the grounds at Sun & Fun, north of Pipkin Road, East of County Line Road).
Date: Monday, September 14 and Monday, October 12
Time: 6:30 p.m. Meeting starts at 7
Parking: There is limited parking available near the pavilion, so please reserve those spots for our more “seasoned” members who might be a little less ambulatory. The rest of us can park a little further away and shuttle over if we need to.
Seating is available at picnic tables under the pavilion. However you are welcome to bring your own beach or lawn chairs which will probably be more comfortable. Also…keeping in mind that it is an outdoor facility in Florida in late summer, it would certainly be a good idea to bring some personal insect repellent!
There will be testing available for anyone interested it obtaining an amateur radio license (or upgrading what they have now). Testing will start at 5:30 p.m. For information on testing contact the club at firstname.lastname@example.org
