Next Club Meeting, open to the public,

Location: NOAA Juneau Weather Forecast Station at 8500 Mendenhall Loop Road

Three brothers ages 92, 94, and 96 live in a house together. One night the 96 year old draws a bath. He puts his foot in and pauses. He yells down the stairs and says 
"Was I getting in or out?"
The 94 year old yells back "I don't know. I'll come up and see." He starts up the stairs and pauses. Then he yells, "Was I going up the stairs or down?"
The 92 year old HAM is sitting in front of his HF rig and listening to his brothers. He shakes his head, picks up the mic and says "I sure hope I never get that forgetful." 
He knocks on wood for good measure. He then yells into the mic,"I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see.... who's at the door. "OVER"

Two elderly hams had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures on the ham bands. Lately, their activities have been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards. One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at me.....I know, we've been friends for a long time.....but I just can't think of your name and your call.! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember them. Please tell me what they are." 
His friend glared at him. For at least three minutes he just stared and glared at the gray haired old man.. 
Finally he said,"How soon do you need to know?

NCDXA “RST” Event coming up!! The North Country DX Association is sponsoring an all-band all-mode event February-March hoping to get as many contacts as possible from all over the world to Ham Operators in Alaska and Canada. This event is not a contest, but is a way to let people know that Ham Radio in the North Country is alive and well.
