A Brief History of Military Communication is a lively, 45-minute PowerPoint presentation that covers 3000 years of “History that we may have missed,” including:

He has been an Amateur Radio Hobbyist (W9NPI) since 1958, and is a Life Member of the American Radio Relay League. As a member of the Antique Wireless Association, he has presented several lectures at their International Conventions in Rochester, NY. He was involved in the Military Affiliate Radio System and Detroit Civil Defense during the “dangerous” 1960’s, and once specialized in converting War Surplus radio equipment to “Ham” Use.
Following the meeting, at approximately 9 PM, many of us migrate to Red Robin on Carpenter Road for a late dinner or snack. All are welcome. Please note, you do not need to be a member to attend the meeting or to join us at Red Robin.
