Be in mind...
The Guilford Amateur Society needs our help.
As most of you are aware the wide coverage W4GG repeater experienced a fatal failure several months ago and has been missed by all. If you are able and feel so inclined please consider a contribution to this worthwhile effort to assist with the funding of this project.  They have setup a Go Fund Me Page for donations. Here is the cover letter from the club treasurer and information on the project.


Hello G.A.S. friends,

We have set up a Go Fund Me page to assist in raising funds to replace
the 145.25 repeater.
We need your assistance - can you take a minute to see the web page
listed below and help with your generous monetary contribution of any
amount. We are trying to restore the "25" repeater back on the air as
soon as possible, but we first need to raise funds for the new equipment.
The 25 repeater is a member of the Piedmont Coastal Repeater Network (PCRN) and this will be restored also when the project is completed.


Your contribution will me much appreciated.



This link will also be placed on the GAS web site soon: www.w4gg.org

Thank you,
Tom Forrest, N4GVK

FIELD DAY - JUNE 2017

Saturday, June 24 from around 10:00 AM - until... with some members planning to operate over night.
At LNR Precision located at 1954 N. Fayetteville St.--Rand Plaza. This is the strip mall-type building just South of the intersection of Spero Road/Central Ave.

This year we will be setup at our regular meeting location at LNR Precision for our participation in Field Day. Our plan is to have multiple radios setup on different bands using several different modes. All are invited to stop by and see what Ham Radio is all about.  If you have ever been curious or wanted to see Ham Radio in action this is an excellent time to experience it firsthand.  Hope to see you there.
