1. CRITICALLY IMPORTANT CHANGES IN STORE SHORTLY

In Addition the Club will be needing the following leaders ASAP:
> 2024 HamFest Manager <
> 2023 Christmas party Manager <
> 2024 Field Day Manager <
If there are no volunteers, the event will be cancelled.
See President Sal if you are willing take on the needed leadership.
2. Replacing our repeater antenna, hoping for changeout in October

Looking for experienced tower climbers and rope handlers.
3. Microwave Committee formation.
4. Microwave transmission experimentation and broadcasting.
5. Member presentation of unique projects at meetings.
6. Club Trailer furnishing and upgrading has made great progress.

It's K7ISC Danny Whaley towering over the neighborhood doing some repair work on KA7KGQ Rich Martin's backyard tower.
Good job, there Danny, take the rest of the day off.

Club Dues for 2023
No increase again this year, $15 plus only $6 for each additional family member.
(A huge bargain at $1.25 a month, come on...)
Mail your check to:
ACARC, PO Box 5283, Wenatchee WA 98807 or bring it to our monthly meeting.
Weekly Thursday Tech Talk Night
on our club 2 meter frequency at 2000.
JIM, N7JA and others monitor sessions wherein club members can discuss anything of technical interest to them and other Hams, and they will be able to chime in with comments and questions. Please feel free to join in, everyone welcome or just listen.
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 our net formally, just go to the NET CHECK IN tab to the left, or perhaps just feel free to 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 are ALWAYS welcome.
