2021 Monthly General Meetings on the third Thursday Start at 7:00 PM

Weekly Nets on Mondays Start at 8:00 PM

BULLETIN BOARD

**** NOTICE ****(03/22/2021)

I've ordered a number of antenna adapters which I will sell to club members at my approximate cost.  They can email me at KI5PG@ARRl.net.  Probably the most useful adapter for Baofeng handhelds would be the BNC adapter.  The second most useful adapter would be the BNC to SO-239 adapter.  My cost in these is right at $2.00 a piece.

 

Thanks.

Bob

We have a second New weekly net

Hi Fellow VARC Members & friends,

I would like to invite you to join me every Sunday, at 6:30 pm on the 145.190 W5DSC repeater for a controlled net, Sunday Musings.  Each Sunday could have a different topic for discussion,  I am open for ideas. Hope to hear you on the air.

**** NEW NOTICE ****  (09/18/2021)
Due to the significant increase in COVID-19 Delta Variant cases in our area and the high hospitalization rate  and very few ICU beds available, we are once again going to have our monthly general membership  meetings "
ON-THE-AIR" again.
The Third Thursday General Monthly Meetings are going to be conducted on-air only on our 145.19 or the 145.13 backup repeater until advised otherwise due to the number of new Covid-Variant cases being reported in our Crossroads area.


Next General Meeting is on October 21st, 2021.
