Monthly Newsletter  Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio  February 2007

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

Due to poor weather we the January MAARS meeting was cancelled, so this will be our first meeting for the year.

We will plan on touring the Riley County Emergency Mobile Command Post, as Pat and Laurie have gratiously offered to bring it to the meeting for MAARS members to see.

I also hope there will be some discussion about the Kids Day event that MAARS participated in at the Manhattan Town Center. I think most of the members who participated will agree that it went well.

Hopefully we will be able to continue to expose the general public to amateur radio a little more in the near future and we would like to hear your ideas for these things.

With the changes in licensing for amateur radio, we will be holding a test session soon. Our current plans are for March 10th at 2:00 PM. These plans will be finalized and a location set soon, so be on the lookout for updates.

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.
