The Amateur's Code is read nightly on 3.916 MHz in memory of Jim Day, K4LTD (sk). Jim suggested that we read the code to remind all of us of the importance of being the 'best of the best' on 3.916. Because of members like Jim and W4FCW, Ken Odom, 3.916 is the frequency where all are welcome!
The Amateur's Code is read nightly at 8:25 PM Central on 3.916
