At our general meeting on 6/19/2019 we were about to start planning the upcoming Field Day when a stranger appeared at the door. We think W3??? Announced himself and offered us the remnants of his ham gear because he wanted it to go to a good home. He was downsizing and leaving Ham Radio and had found us from our website. In the excitement to see what he had, we all forgot his call sign which makes him our anonymous donor. If you read this post, please get back in touch or leave your details as a comment. We would like you to get the recognition you deserve.  

Among the donation, I for one was lucky to find an old copy of the ARRL handbook, dated 1955, the year I was born. There was also an old copy of something I had never seen, The Amateur radio Defense, dated Jan, 1942. This is a great read, it has cartoon style strips and a joke (see picture) as well as relevant advice on how to have a successful radio club!
