Monthly Newsletter  Supporting the Advancement of Amateur Radio  November 2007

Brian Carter, KCØDWX

I apologize that this month's newsletter is text only.

I would like to thank Myron (WØPBV) for his program that he presented at the last meeting. I think it was very interesting to most members.

This past Monday, November 5, Scott and I gave a speech to a local Boy Scout group here in Manhattan. I hope that down the line we will be able to work with these youth and gain more interest in radio. The Scouting members present seemed to have interest in our speech and there was some discussion of the Radio Merit Badge.

This coming meeting, which will be November 9, 2007, will be the MAARS annual election of officers. We will choose our leadership over the next year. Persons wanting to run for office or who wish to vote must be paid members in MAARS.

MAARS will accept nominations for officers from all and of all licensed amateur radio operators.

We will hold our usual eating meeting around 5:30 here in Manhattan at the Sirloin Stockade. Our meeting will be at 7:30 at the Red Cross building here in Manhattan.

I hope we will see you all there. MAARS needs your support.

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.
