Attention to those of you who may have Artistic/Design talent.
There is a move afoot to possibly upgrade or re-design or modernize our club's logo.  The need exists to digitize the logo for many reasons in this computer-driven age, so if we are going to do that, it is the perfect time to take a good hard look at the logo and improve it.  
Give it a try and email your input to swabby57@nwi.net 
and the Board will consider all the entries.

Coming up will be the election of officers for the year 2021.

There is one vacancy requiring a volunteer,

that of Trustee for a 3 year term.

Nominations are being accepted for all offices on the Board,

President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.

 

Please consider taking on an active leadership position, the job is not

really that difficult but it certainly is personally rewarding. Come on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1.  The annotated List of Repeaters from Joel K7ZR was updated 9/7.​  Look for it at the bottom of this page.

2.  To view the latest news from ARRL, click HEREor QRZ, click HERE.  

 

3.  The club has 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.

4.  Preliminary steps are being taken to re-schedule the Soldering Classes we had to cancel due to the Corona debacle.  Thoughts are to split the students into two groups in order to maintain distancing and gathering limits.  

 

Watch here for scheduling time/date/location and a means to get your name on the list for these events.

to read a really interesting story by Jim K7MQV about his extremely hard and long journey to earn the certificate you see to the right, click HERE.

  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.
