Monthly Newsletter Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio January 2006

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas and a great start to the new year. I hope this year will find an increase in interest and efforts with the local amateur radio community.

I'd like to thank the officers that are leaving office, Donna-Rose Hackerott (NØZKX), and Erin Crouch (KBØTXL) for the efforts over the last several years. Of course I'd also like to thank Francis Sable for being an officer in the past and continuing to be an officer in the 2006 year. I look forward to working with Scott Chainey (ACØCY) over the next year as well.

Our first meeting of 2006 will be this coming Friday the 13th, at the American Red Cross in Manhattan, 2601 Anderson Ave. We hope to hear any ideas you might have for the coming year such as programs or efforts we can make such as communications efforts in the community. For our dinner meeting on Friday, we will meet at the Sirloin Stockade in Manhattan around 5:30 P.M. We encourage all area and visiting amateur radio license holders as well as those with an interest in radio to attend both of our meetings. We look forward to seeing you there.

NEW FROM ARRL - Beginning October 1, 2001, our club will receive $15 for each new member joining the ARRL through our club. This is for new members or those who have not been a member for two or more years. There will be no commission for renewals but we still may submit your renewals, if you wish. Since the club retains the dues, it is necessary for you to write your check to MAARS, and then the treasurer writes a check to ARRL.


Dues will be due by Oct. 31 and are: regular membership $20, full-time student $10, family $30. Please complete the following when renewing your membership, even if you did so last year. Return to the Treasurer, at a meeting or to MAARS, P. O. Box 613, Manhattan, KS 66505-0613. If you are currently receiving both the email and paper copy of the newsletter, please consider just receiving the email copy. It will save the club $5-6.00 per year per copy.
