Monthly Newsletter  Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio  November 2006

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

At October's meeting we discussed how to get more people involved in amateur radio, as well as getting more people at some of our meetings. We will be working on some of those ideas and looking for others as well. We would like to hear any ideas you might have and encourage you to let us know. I can be e-mailed at

One suggestion we had was to set up a Kids' Day station. In 2007 Kids' Day will be on January 7th and June 16th. Look later in the newsletter for more info on this event, and consider if it is something we can be involved in.

Our November meeting will be the election of officers. Which for the last few years has pretty much been a nomination and acceptance of officers. As Francis (WØEVJ) pointed out on the net we should have a nominating commitee. I asked Scott Chainey (ACØCY) to fill that role and he accepted. If any one is interested in holding an office or has suggestions, they should feel free to get with Scott by Friday's meeting. We will also take nominations from the floor and self-nominations are allowed.

We will also need to finalize a date for our annual Christmas party. Fred and Nadine have gratiously offered to allow us to hold our party there again this year. Dates discussed were the 2nd and 9th of December. We held off on choosing a date, so we better coordinate our schedules and decide what date worked best.

Our meeting will be at the usual time at the Red Cross in Manhattan, We have decided to meet at Chili's around 5:30 for dinner. We hope to see you on Friday.

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.
