SARA This Week – April 12 – April 13

PLEASE, stay at home for your health. DO THE FIVE.

Our experience shows that SARA’s on-air activities help stimulate your cerebral cortex and provide healthy social contact while maintaining personal distancing. Wellness checks continue to be a part of our on-air gatherings, whether stated or otherwise. Joining our on-air activity is not only a wellness check on others, it’s a wellness check of your own overall wellness.

Please note that we’ve made some adjustments to the on-air schedule:

>> The Top Band ragchew is now essentially nightly, with the addition of HF Afterglows following TMT and TMT2.

>> Two Meter Tuesday moves to a 7:00 PM start time this week. Both the Tuesday and Thursday 2-meter ragchews will now have the same scheduled start time of 7:00 PM.
