You won't want to miss the 2018 FARA Christmas Party! Andy Stewart, KB1OIQ, will be doing a presentation about the HF Signals BITX40 and uBITX transceivers designed by Ashar Farhan, VU2ESE (see http://www.hfsignals.com/).

Founder of the Worcester Linux Users' Group and Chelmsford Linux Meetup Group, Andy is the ARRL Affiliated Club Coordinator for the Eastern Massachusetts (EMA) section (see http://www.arrl.org/affiliated-club-coordinator). Andy is perhaps best known for his ham radio Linux distribution, "KB1OIQ - Andy's Ham Radio Linux" (see https://sourceforge.net/projects/kb1oiq-andysham/).

The party will be held at the Falmouth Yacht Club on Thursday, December 13, starting at 6:30 PM. The cost is $35 per person (includes dinner, dessert and gratuity) with a cash bar.

In addition to Andy's presentation, there will be the Not-Quite-Yankee Swap (bring a gift!) and awards and recognition. And speaking of awards - if you know of a FARA member deserving of recognition for their contributions to the club and/or ham radio, let us know!

Payment of $35 per person can be made via check mailed to the FARA address (PO Box 815, West Falmouth, MA 02574), or brought in person to the November FARA meeting (Saturday, November 17). For those who wish to use PayPal, click the button below.
