wa4fxx- recommended cert classes- very worthwhile, take care of yourself and help take care of your neighbors. no continuing commitment required after the training.
Alan/KO4ALA- MCM is devouring SET preparation- haven't heard a thing about SET. marines have added several new jobs along the course. this year need 120 hams instead of 100 like last year. As of last week they only had half the volunteers they needed. sign up online at http://ncacdc.com

wa4fxx- ian/dtp sent idea for solar charger project. on the league publishing site they're putting together package of 40m qrp rig/book. as winter approaches we might consider these types of things for projects.
