Subject: May NARA Meeting

Hi Folks,

Our NARA meeting will be held on *Saturday, May 14,* at 6:00 P.M.Note
that this is the second Saturday in May rather than our usual third
Saturday!This change in schedule was approved at the March meeting in
order to avoid conflicts with the Dayton Hamvention on the third
Saturday and Memorial Day weekend on the fourth Saturday.

After a brief business meeting, we will have a presentation by Mike
Mickelson KD8DZ on "Grounding for Lightening 'Protection'," in response
to several requests for discussion on this important topic.Mike has
spent considerable time studying this subject and has made presentations
to several groups, including an earlier one to NARA some time ago.It's
worth reminding everyone that there are at least three distinct
categories of grounding:Electrical safety, RF propagation, and
Lightening protection.

Mary Beth KD8OMU and I owe a special thanks to Don KB8RUN for serving as
Chair and to Bret KD8SCL for serving as Secretary at the NARA meeting in
April while we were out of town visiting family.I heard we had a good
attendance and that Dwight W8TJT gave a great presentation on Message
Handling.I'll distribute a draft copy of the minutes of that meeting in
about a week.

I hope to see you at the NARA meeting on May 14.


Weldon K8NQ
President, NARA
