SVHFS Conference April 23 & 24, 2004

Southeastern VHF Society 8th Annual Conference
Atlanta GA, April 23 & 24, 2004

Hi all,

Here is a short reminder about our upcoming SVHFS conference in April.
It is almost here! The conference is just over two months away. Boy
does time fly!

We have been working hard on putting together a great technical
program and a family program for our attendees. Things are coming
along pretty well. If you would like to submit a paper for
inclusion in the proceedings or do a program, there is still time
to do that. Please get in touch with Program Chairman Ray Rector,
WA4NJP wa4njp@bellsouth.net

Our Family Program Chairwoman Shirley Adams has a good program
for the wives in the works. One activity is a big arts and crafts
show that will be in town during the conference. Another trip will
be to a large outlet mall in Dahlonega and lunch at the Smith House.
Shirley is looking to get some numbers on how many wives will be
attending so she can arrange for enough transportation. If your wife
is attending please contact Shirley via Ws4fher@aol.com

Here are some highlight activities from the conference:

++ Southeastern VHF Society / Mini-Circuits Annual Award for Design
Achievement. This is a circuit design competition co-sponsored with
Mini-Circuits that has a first prize of either $1000 cash or a $2500
gift certificate for Mini-Circuits products. Second thru sixth place
winners would receive gift certificates worth $200. The design
competition is for SVHFS members (registration for the conference
