December Meeting Program

Everyone is invited to bring a desert or snack for a pitch in celebration while watching the QLF contest.

TARS will provide drinks, plates and tableware.
Ideas might include cookies, brownies, cheeseball, snack mix or anything you would like to share.

Now you are probably asking yourself, self what does QLF mean?


From Q signal list in the Old Timers Handbook

QLF - I am sending with my left foot.

QLF? - Are you sending with your left foot?

Are you starting to get the idea?  QLF is a derogatory word kind of like LID, but we are going to have a little fun with it. 
Yes that’s right YOU will be sending CW with your left foot.
