First Contact


Fellow Club Members,


With all of the folks getting their license for the first time, I think it would be a great idea, if you are their “first contact”, to note the date and time of the QSO. Why? The ARRL offers a First Contact certificate that is 8 ½ X 11, and is suitable for framing. A great way for the “new” ham to remember their first contact! See the example and link below:


We have had the opportunity in our Club to present one of these certificates to one of our newest members.


Thank you for your time, and support of the Club.
