Monthly Newsletter  Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio  June 2006

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

At our last meeting, we considered more work on the portable tower project. As of this past weekend Fred Stueve, KØTCS has received a price quote of $300 to sandblast the trailer. We will need to decide if this is the amount we would like to spend for this stage of the project.

The club has also not decided on Field Day events for the event, which will be on June 24th- 25th. We will attempt to make plans for the event at our meeting.

On June 4th Myron and Nancy Calhoun, WØPBV and NØKMU; Fancis Sable, WØEVJ, and myself aided with the annual Red Cross Triathlon. The event was delayed by an hour or so, but finally went on. There were a couple of equipment proglems but there were quickly solved, and our services were appreciated. Fortunately there were no emergencies that needed our attention.

Our meeting this month will be at the Red Cross in Manhattan at 2601 Anderson Avenue at 7:30 P.M., with our eating meeting being at the All Chinese Buffet located at 2304 Stagg Hill Rd. at 5:30 P.M. We invite all members and nonmembers and guests are welcome. We hope to see you there.

The MAARS meeting for May 12, 2006 was held at the Stueve residence west of Wamego.

We had a buffet type lunch. It was announced that the new transmit antenna for the repeater has been installed.

We have been asked to provide communications assistance for the Red-Cross sponsored Flint Hills Triathlon, which is scheduled for Sunday June 4. This year's Field Day is scheduled for June 24 & 25. The Field Day site favored by most was the Fred & Nadine Stueve residence.

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.
