1. A HUGE Thank You goes out to one of the incredible members of our Club.  Jim Klein, K7RDX, made a very generous donation of $75 to our treasury recently.  We thank him so very much for this act, while not forgetting the tons of work  he does to keep things running and helping with equipment repair/overhauls, etc.  Your club is so grateful, Jim.

6.  The club has restarted the Monday Lunches at the local ABBY's on 5th and Western at about 11:45-ish.  The establishment is rearranged to sit 4 at a table, no salad bar but you can order a salad, no dispenser drinks, but bottles available.  Not quite back to normal yet but on the way.  Come on by, it's a bit strange but better than isolation.

 

7. License Testing was accomplished on the evening of September 16th.  VEC Skip KE7MPO,  VE Jex K7JEW, and VE Ron K7VP presided over the session as five candidates took tests.  The result was we now have 1 new Tech, 2 new Generals, and 2 new Extras to add to the total.  Three of the five new licensees declined any publicity here, so we will comply with their wishes. Pictures below of the other two folks.  In any case, congratulations to them and thanks to the VE team, one more time.

  Click HERE to read  about the tinySA  

  from Jim Alyn N7JA   

His description, experience, and analysis of the equipment starts thus:

 

"For the past several months, I have been beta testing the tinySA, that is, the tiny Spectrum Analyzer. 

 

If you’re familiar with the NanoVNA, the tinySA is exactly the same size, approximately 3.5 inches by 2.2 inches, with ascreensize of 2.8 inches. The tinySA has two bands, one from basically DC to 350 MHz. The second band covers from 240 MHz to 960 MHz. The second band is basically extra functionality thrown in for free, and doesn’t have the same performance as the lower band."

ARE YOU PAID UP FOR 2020?

As of 6/29/20 only 65 of our 103 members are paid up.

Check your status on the MEMBERS ONLY  page.

 

​Dues for club membership are payable each December for the next calendar year: January - December, prorating no longer available.   Last paid information has been added to the (private) MEMBERS ONLY list, in the right hand column of that page.  

One of the most regular and well-attended events that ACARC sponsors is our Tuesday night Net Check-ins.  Just to give you an idea of the activity this year, see the spreadsheet below.  A greater number of people are involved here than in our Club Meetings - or just about anything else we do. 
Weekly updates are especially important during these times of change and instantaneous re-arrangement. 
 
You are welcome to join in the Net formally, or perhaps just listen in to the announcements on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm - if nothing else just so you can keep up to speed on events happening - or not happening - or dates changing. 
GUESTS WELCOME.
