Due to a mistake made by the club’s acting president (you know who it is), there will be a special election at the December general BVARC meeting. The special election will be held for club treasurer to complete the term of Bob Tomlinson, N5JSL. Please make sure you attend to help with the important club function.
The Gateway to D-STAR
It has been around for a few years and according to the last unofficial survey approximately 10% of BVARC members are equipped to use this mode. It is a merge of computer networking and amateur radio that gives ham radio abilities that were unheard of just a few years ago. The D-STAR digital voice and data format is one of the digital formats that is being used throughout the US. Come out and learn about the many possibilities that D-STAR has on the VHF and UHF bands.
In Case You Missed It Last Month - Chili and Club Elections
The chili was good….It was really good! If you didn’t make it to the meeting last month, that’s ok. By you missing last month, everybody was able to have more than enough Chili. We had several entries as well as several types of cornbread. The Sugar Land Skeeters judged the entries and awarded prizes for the best chili and cornbread.
Elections were held for the BVARC board of directors. The winners were:
1 Year At Large – Jon Noxon – KF5TFJ 2 Year At Large – Jo Keener – KE7NSB
Recording Secretary – Michael Monsour – AC0TX President – Mike Hardwick – N5VCX
