BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND… SLSRC is starting the 2023/2024 Fall/Winter session of the “Back to the Basics” Classes for Amateur Radio.

The classes will be at 7 PM on the first Friday of each month in rooms 419-420 of the Clinical Learning Institute (Goldfarb School of Nursing) at Missouri Baptist Hospital. (Same meeting location as the monthly SLSRC meetings.)
