Our special event was a success. After some "learning experiences" we got the equipment set up and ready to operate. One of our main objectives was to check into the Southern California VA Hospital New on 14.455.
We had a few Vets come and either listen or, actually talk on the radio. We have been invited back next year. We are looking forward to another visit. The date will be changed to a "non holiday weekend".
