Mike K7CF, PARC member, active ham.
Mikes been a friend for a long time, He was
licensed in 1960, is an Extra, and loves his radios
He's running for State Senator
Legislative District 28
if you live in 28, look for him on the ballot
Think about it, a ham in Boise might be a good idea.
I would like to see my friend and fellow HAM get elected.
Learn More about Mike

PARC operator K7CF from his home, THATS
I Like Mike, (see above)

CW, a pain for most of us, but not mike, its like a second language
and he made not only a Clean Sweep but was the Division leader for

PARC Mission Statement:
Our goal for 2016 is simple:
to help each club member, individually, with their specific needs.
We also want to get every member acquainted with some of the
exciting possibilities of today’s Ham Radio , with
a focus on "Elmers" to help you .
New Hams, please, you are welcome at out meetings,
if you need help, come to the meetings and let your needs be
our programs are aimed at the newer hams, to expose you to the wild and
crazy parts of your hobby.
By attending the meetings you will meet a lot of Old Time Hams most of
whom want to impart all the enjoyment Ham Radio
has given them. And tell some war stories in the process.
What do we need from you ?
1. attend our meetings, often
2. attend our other functions
(rub shoulders at
breakfast, parties, special events)
3. tell us what questions you have about ham radio,
and what we can do to "individually" help you.
(See note 1.).
Hams are a lot of things but we are not mind readers,
if you don’t tell us whats on your mind WE have to guess,
and guessing doesn’t always hit the target let alone the bulls eye !
