Monthly Newsletter Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio August 2004

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

Last month MAARS selected Mike Moore NØPVU as the new trustee to take over from Henry (KAØSWM). Paperwork has been filed with ARRL to make this change.

The hamfest and Kansas State Convention will be held in Salina on the 15th. Friday's meeting will be a good time for people to make carpooling arrangements if they are interested in attending this year's convention.

The August meeting will be held on August 13, at 7:30 P.M. at 2601 Anderson Ave. in Manhattan. A change this month for dinner after some discussion we have decided to try a new location. We will meet at the Village Inn in Manhattan, across the street from the Mall. Members should arrive around 5:30 for dinner and conversation. As usual, all members and guests as well as anyone with an interest in amateur radio is encouraged to join us at both the eating meeting as well as the club meeting.

See you there.

The July meeting was on Friday July 9, 2004 at the Red Cross Building. Brian, KCØDWX, MAARS president, conducted the meeting.

It was voted to replace Henry, KAØSWM, as repeater trustee, at his request, with Mike Moore, NØPVU. It was decided that a tone squelch card may be installed in the repeater in the near future. It was decided the annual MAARS picnic will be held Sunday, Sept. 26 at Keats. The Salina hamfest and State Convention is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 15. The Warrensburg Area Amateur Radio Club is holding a hamfest at the Johnson County Fair Grounds on Hwy 50 near the CMSU airport just west of Warrensburg. For more info, contact Keith Raihala at

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.
