FAU News and Updates

As of 2018-10-29 from Grant K4KEK

K4FAU is now RSO, giving us the ability to table on the breezeway, get funding from FAU, and book rooms on campus.

We are working on our repeater awaiting approval from IT on campus; we also got a possible donation from KG4GOQ, the repeater that used to be on top of Boca Hotel.

We have an ISS contacted planned for Feb. Unknown if will happen due to ISS could be empty.
