On Thursday, August 7th, over 50 members & friends of the Greater Norwalk Amateur Radio Club took the time to enjoy themselves at a picnic hosted by one of their members, Paul Lourd WB2JVB, at his house in Wilton. The picnic was held in lieu of the regular monthly meeting.
Two VIP’s graced the party with their presence, namely ARRL CT Section Manager Betsey Doane K1EIC, & CT State Representative Gail Lavielle R-143.
Charles, N1LLL, had his “go kit” HF radio hooked up to Paul’s Buddipole dipole on 17 meters and some DX was heard.
All in attendance enjoyed great conversation, & were treated to fantastic food, magnificently prepared by Chef Mark KB1JGL, assisted by Toy K1WYQ. The entertainment included many being captivated by a remote controlled “Quadcopter”. And no party (or meeting) would be complete without Toy holding a raffle as only he can!!
