With the arrival of spring, we experienced a severe weather event on April 15th that…
The second quarter of 2019 has been a very busy time for the club.
First and foremost, we had very enjoyable Dinner Socials at Rotolo’s Pizzeria in Thibodaux (April), Walk-Ons Bistreaux in Houma (May), and Sante Fe Cattle Company in Thibodaux (June).

On the business side, the Board of Directors met in April and recommended three amendments to the club By-Laws, which were confirmed by the General Membership at the May General Business Meeting. The minutes of this May meeting which include the By-Laws amendments can be found on the W5YL.org website, under the “DOCUMENTS” tab, then under “General Business Meeting Minutes” section for May 2019.
|The June 2019 General Business Meeting was well stocked with enthusiastic Hams.|
We participated in Field Day this year at the Houma City Park (Air Base) Pavilion. Even though we had equipment malfunctions and experienced extreme summer heat, a good time was had by all. Our thanks to all who came out!

We are currently working feverishly to secure spots for our 147.330 and 444.500 repeaters in Houma, LA. We are very close to finalizing paperwork for the 147.330 location. We will make a formal announcement when the transaction and installation is complete.
We wish everyone health and prosperity, and most of all, GOOD DX!
