SARA This Week: April 5 – April 11

SARA activities for this week.


PLEASE, stay at home for your health. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay home! 

Wellness checks are 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, physical and otherwise. Our study shows that SARA’s on-air activities help stimulate your cerebral cortex and will provide social contact while maintaining personal distancing.

Now on to this week’s activities!

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.
