Home Page for the Desert Circle
Amateur Radio Club
NU7DE is the
callsign of the Desert
Circle Amateur Radio Club. We are a group of Ham Radio Travellers
who meet once a year at Mile
99 south of Quartzsite
AridZona and/or at the Magic Circle across the street in South
La Posa. We also meet elsewhere and elsewhen as band and road
conditions change. The Ham Shack is where we park it.
Latest NEWS! www.NU7DE.net is a fait accompli. Thanks to Mike,
KD7TKQ. And our new logo! Thanks Mike! T-shirts for the group are a
done deal. Six remain as of this writing. The logo is on front and
back--for those of us that don't know if we're coming or going.
Write Mike, kD7tKq, for info about colour and size and price. We
still have the silk screen around someplace.
Tickle the foot in the logo there and see how our NU7DE extra long
shirts look when they are on a live body.
