The Prez’s Shack
Happy New Year! Are we a bit late or early? The calendar says it is
September, after all. School kids and teachers refer to this time as
a new year, ham radio contesters are getting ready for a new

on it and saw a lot of pictures of other eclipses. Another person,
our own Dr. Bob, will fill us in on his own experience viewing the
Please join us and feel free to linger outside in the nice late-
