Pat Moore hosts. We’ll hear Beth Weigel’s Mudroom presentation from last season; Jack Gregson, past president of the Juneau Amateur Radio Club, will give us details of this weekend’s ham radio Field Day – the club will set up an elaborate temporary amateur radio station at Hagevig Fire Training Center and operate it for 24 hours from 10 a.m. Saturday to 10 Sunday morning, using emergency power to talk to as many other Field Day stations set up around the nation and across Canada; and Nancy deCherney will make sure we have a clear take on this weekend’s Juneau arts scene with Arts Up!
