Monthly Newsletter Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio March 2003

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

Last month several members of MAARS addressed and sent out newsletters as well as info for the club to over one hundred persons in the area who have not been active in our group recently. We will go over the response we received from our mailing at the March 14 meeting.

I also mentioned getting together and sharing information for lightning safety in thinking of how to best protect your amateur radio equipment. If you have any thoughts or ideas or other information, bring this along with you to the meeting. It also time that we start to make some plans for Field Day and start to think of a location. Perhaps we can get several ideas thrown out so we can be thinking of those over the next month or so.

For those interested in severe weather there will be a Basic Spotter Class on March the 31st at 7 P.M. at the Headquarters Fire Station in Manhattan. It is located on the corner of Kimball and Denison. This meeting is open to the general public and is a training requirement for all members of WARN.

Remember our March meeting is the 14th at 7:30 P.M. at 2601 Anderson Ave. in Manhattan, and we will also get together for dinner at the Sirloin Stockade in Manhattan around 5:30 P.M. I hope to see 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.
