Digital Mode Instruction by Mitch Hopper K9ZXO

So you've learned enough to know that Olivia, Thor and Domino are digital modes and not the members of the newest pop music group. But you say that you can't tell one from another when you hear them on air?

Come to the SVRC Clubroom on Saturday, February 4 at 9:00am to learn everything you need to know about using digital modes and setups, a class conducted by Mitch Hopper K9ZXO.

There will be plenty of seats, but please let us know you are coming! Hope to see you there!
