ARRL TN Section PIC News – April Edition

April Showers bring… A need for need for community service, if you live in TN. Helping our communities when there is severe weather is one of the ways that our Amateur Radio Operators use their skills to benefit the areas where they live. There are many activities sponsored by local communities and interest groups that are supported by our Amateur Radio Clubs. Is your club one of them? Learn how to be recognized for your club’s efforts in our “ARRL Special Service Clubs” article in the ARRL TN Section PIC News.

Read about some of the recent Hamfests, and those coming up soon. Don’t forget – The Memphis FreeFest is Saturday, April 8. Get the details in our PIC News!

See other featured benefits from ARRL, including “ARRL the Doctor is In”, and ways to become involved in the ARRL Teachers Institute.
