Monthly Newsletter  Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio  August 2006

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

Well, as we didn't have a meeting last month, we will keep this short and sweet this month. First on our agenda needs to be finishing up the trailer project. The trailer is still at Myron's house and needs to be sandblasted and painted. My initial thought is the weather will soon be cooling off, we should take any chance to get a start on it, and then use our September 'picnic' meeting to do more work. We usually have a picnic in September so let's use this chance to accomplish more owrk on the project. With any luck we will have nice weather for it.

As I'm sure you have all heard, we will be losing two more hams in the area. Henry Bachman (KAØSWM), and Erin Crouch (KBØTXL), will be moving during the month of August. Henry and Erin have both served as officers for MAARS in the past and have been a asset to the Manhattan amateur radio community. We will miss them in the area, but expect to hear from them in their new location.

Don't forget the Kansas State Convention will be in Salina on August the 20th. It is an excellent chance to find bargains and visit with a great number of people in amateur radio.

Our August meeting will be August the 11th at 7:30 P.M. at the Red Cross in Manhattan, 2601 Anderson Ave. Our dinner meeting will be at Grizzly's, located in the Village West shopping center where Alco is located. All amateurs and guests are welcome. We will 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.
