Please note that CVARC now has a new website www.w1bd.com, vs. this “.org” site. At our February 3rd meeting Russ Shauer volunteered to “webmaster” the new site and is in the process of constructing the site. Notes on the Feb. 3rd meeting may be found there.
A few notes here –
Until the April elections Steve Board KA1LHZ has agreed to continue as president and take over as director while Tom Long KB1NGQ steps down as director to take over as treasurer.
Tom has obtained the CVARC checkbook from Shawn Silk, deposited our latest collected dues to the TD Bank and paid $100 to Barre Town to reserve the Barre Town Rec. Area/Pavilion for this year’s Field Day (Saturday June 25 – Sunday June 26).
FUTURE MEETINGS -Per decision at the Feb. 3rd meeting, meetings will be held at the Barre City Police Department the first Wednesday of each month (6:00 pm – 8:00 pm). Check the new website for where folks may gather for dinner prior to meetings (“Soups and Greens”, 321 N. Main St., Barre, has been mentioned). Although the “Steak House” has been very gracious in hosting our meetings for some time now, members decided they would rather not feel compelled to buy dinner when attending meetings. Russ has secured the Police Department facility, at least through next December.
Please check the new www.w1bd.com website for further information and join us at the Barre City P.D. for the March 2nd meeting and, especially, for the April 6th Annual Meeting and Election of Officers.
Also note that the 146.625 Williamstown repeater was worked on last week by Chris Knox N1GBB and Chris Craig K1MHZ and now provides improved coverage for Central VT. Further work on the repeater is scheduled.
73, Tom Long KB1NGQ
