The ARES Group held its Monday net on April 30th at the QTH of KE6GLA. At the meeting we had examples of four go-boxes built by the ARES members.   We plan on bringing the boxes to a future club meeting for show and tell.  Start working on yours. The boxes below are from KD6KNA, KE6GLA, KK6EGM, and W6CK.
