Missouri Section Activity Report – August 2015

August turned out to be a relatively quiet month but it was hot. Hopefully everyone has enjoyed the summer. As Fall approaches don’t forget to check the Go Kits for seasonal changes. I hope everyone is getting ready to participate in a Simulated Emergency Test (SET) in your County or District. October is SET month and if you hold a SET, don’t forget to submit your report to the ARRL for QST.
