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.

We have added another 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.

Finally, the FCC released another bulletin about the new fee increase.  While other services will see a fee increase by April 19th, the ham fee increase likely will not take effect until the summer.  The FCC and the ARRL will give us a 30-day heads up.  More news on this topic, later, too.

Directions to Harvey's Busy Bee location.

Harvey says:  The Google map shows it being about 1/2 mile from the actual entrance. If coming from 1447, the entrance to the Busy Bee is immediately BEFORE Cattle Guard Road makes a sharp turn to the right. As you get on Cattle Guard from 1447 you will go over a slight rise and then down a hill. When you pass the steel building on your left, slow down and start looking to your left for our gate. There is a white sign to the left of the gate with the address so there will be no mistake. We will try to keep a watch on 146.520 Simplex if you get lost, or try my cell 361-676-0356. Hope to see you there!
