Non Lethal Defense

Do not forget this upcoming Wednesday is the Non Lethal Defense talk at McCall’s BBQ and Seafood. This is being taught by a certified Instructor (Shep) and covering Pepper Spray and Tazers. This is a great time to fellowship with like minded individuals and learn about non lethal defense.

Join us this Wednesday August 26th.

Location: McCall’s BBQ and Seafood Clayton,NC

Dinner is at 6:00 PM

The Class will start after dinner. Please note that McCall’s graciously allowing us the use of their meeting room for this event so please plan on paying for your dinner to help them.

We certainly appreciate McCall’s and Shep for putting this event together. Please bring your loved ones as this is not just limited to Amateur Radio Operators. This should help everyone with non lethal defense.

Given that picture there seems to be a picture of the Great Depression. What are your thoughts? Please plan on tuning in tonight at 9:00 PM on the AK4H repeater as we have our weekly rag chew about preparedness and share your thoughts!

Whether you enjoy listening on your radio, scanner, or even echolink it is a check in driven net so if you have your technician license or higher feel free to hit the PTT button. If you have not gotten your ticket yet please let us know what we can do to help.
