The focal point of the club's activity is our monthly general membership meetings which are held on the first non-holiday Thursday of every month except July and August, at 7:00 pm, at the Robert Gauntlett Community Center in Newtown Square, PA. Click here for a map and directions.
Each monthly meeting usually features a guest speaker who discusses a technical or cultural topic of interest to radio amateurs. Each of these talks is written up in our monthly membership newsletter The Dipole.
