Every Saturday morning at 9am at Sykes Restaurant located at 202 2nd Ave. West, Kalispell.

This is an informal get-together for an "eyeball QSO".

EVERYONE is invited, especially NEW hams! This is an excellent forum for new hams to be able to sit down with seasoned hams and absorb the hobby! Come on down and enjoy some GREAT Amateur Radio talk over coffee, ham and eggs!
