MARC – Cincinnati’s Club For Amateur Radio – 147.345+ (PL 123.0)

President’s Message to the Membership, March 2017

Dave Vest, K8DV

Hello fellow MARC members and my apologies for not publishing a February update. As most of you know I attended Hamcation in Orlando and thus did not make it to the February meeting, I guess between that and the missed update I now have 2 strikes.

Moving to March the goal is to name the new Field Day Chairman(s), committee, location and high level goals and plans. Also at the March meeting to celebrate the birthday of the club there will be cupcakes on hand.
As we look into 2017 we will continue to have several interesting presentations that are coming up:

  • March – TBD, “Casual Contesting” by Dave, K8DV
  • April – Ham Radio Recruiting by Mike, W8BEI
  • May – Open
  • June – Open

As you know we introduced a new segment to the monthly meetings called “Jack’s Shack”. Feedback so far has been positive, so we will keep it going. Jack will not be at the March meeting and has asked that I fill in, I have a idea but you need to be at the meeting to find out what it is. Hint: It will be related to Erik’s presentation last month. If you have an idea for Jack’s Shack you can submit your ideas to either Jack or myself at one of the below email addresses:

  • – Dave Vest, K8DV
  • – Jack Purdum, W8TEE

If you have not been to a meeting in a while, I ask that you try and attend in 2017 and get involved as the club is only what you make of it.
Dave K8DV
