Spring is rapidly approaching, and with Spring, a young man's (and YL's) thoughts turn to........ham radio public service (well, maybe).

Below is a link to the sign-up page created for this spring's events, and events being posted as they are confirmed.
There are opportunities for SAGS, Rest Stop Monitors, and some shadows.
