Monthly Newsletter  Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio  April 2009

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

First I apologize for the brief non-formatted form of this newsletter. I originally had a nice newsletter going then realized that our meeting schedule coincided with Good Friday and the Easter holiday weekend, so we changed our meeting to Friday the 17th of April. As I'm one of the world's best procrastinators, you are now receiving this e-mail as a late newsletter.

If you have made it this far in reading this, then I would like you to know that our monthly MAARS meeting is Friday the 17th of April at the American Red Cross in Manhattan at 1701 Anderson Ave. at 7:30 P.M. local. We also encourage you to meet for the eating meeting at 5:30 at the Sirloin Stockade in Manhattan.

Our goals for this month's MAARS meeting will be a possible discussion of the Cabin Fever Bike ride from last weekend, as well as talk of the upcoming CASA bike ride on May 30th. Myron (WØPBV) will take a moment to discuss some communications needs with local entities, and the need to actually test those comms. in the near future as well as on a regular basis.

We will also need very badly to discuss plans for our Field Day location for this year. If you have ideas as to where we should hold the event, please let us know. If you can't make the meeting, then forward your ideas to myself or another person so they can be shared at the meeting. Field Day should be a practice event for emergency communications, as well as a good chance to share radio with the public.

I apologize for the format and shortness of this newsletter, and hope to see you all at the meeting.

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.
