Enjoy a great article about Morse code, CW, and amateur radio that was included in the Jan/Feb 2023 Smithsonian Magazine. It appears to be written by a non-ham but was very factual. Special thanks to my son, Christopher KF6FGJ who shared it saying, "I thought it was really neat and a nice tribute to some of what makes Ham Radio such a special hobby."

On May 7, 2022, our Annual SJHF Net Picnic was held with special thanks to our Kingsburg Radio Club members. Larry AD6W again secured and paid for the reservation of the arbor at Memorial Park. KI6SK Mel provided the barbecue and hamburgers, K6LYI provided the condiments, and AD6W Larry supplied homemade ice cream. AA6F Jim again barbequed the hot dogs and Myron WA6BLB brought the soft drinks and bottled water. A special treat was Bob's (SK K6GDI) wife's carrot cake supplied courtesy of Bob, K6RMW. My apologies to others that brought items such as the great salads, cobblers and other ice cream that I have not mentioned here.

San Joaquin Net History
The San Joaquin net was formed April 28, 1959, by
K6EJT Bill with a group of amateur radio operators that included:
Al K6RPL, Roger K6HEZ, Alex W6BWM, Fred WA6AFW, Joe W6YQK, Jim K6ZFM, Floyd W6MJS, Verne K6EBO, John W6QRB, Sam K6OBG, Charlie K6SWW and Mike WA6OLG.
They met on 3.915 Kc every night but Sundays and holidays.
Members gave a weather report from their area.
The net increased in members, and changed the name to The San
Joaquin Net. The net has grown to a membership of over seventy
members with Q T H's throughout California.
The history of the San Joaquin Net was
