There is currently a bill going through congress that would protect our ability to put an antenna on our houses from unreasonable restrictions from Home Owner's Associations. You can read about it on the ARRL web site here. You can also read the message sent out by the ARRL Mountain Division that includes information on how you can urge our congressmen to pass this bill.
The club board would like to thank those who came out to the work party at Ed's place. Specifically, Bryan, N0BCB, who climbed the tower to un-mount the antenna and connect up the tow truck cables and did all the dangerous tower work for us. Mikey, KD0USB, and Tom, K1TJ, brought tow-trucks and winches which were used to lower the tower. Marty, KC0QOK, helped with cleaning up removing the barbed wire and bundling the fence posts for recycling. And let us not forget Mother Nature, she brought the rain and lightening.
The club held it's annual Field Day on Saturday the 28th. Hope everyone had a great time. Pictures are being posted here. If you have pictures to contribute, send them to 'firstname.lastname@example.org'.
The ARRL has launched a free practice test site to go along with the others available on the web. Their site requires a free registration (like most others), and can be found at: http://arrlexamreview.appspot.com/
The club holds a net each Wednesday at 7 pm on the 447.275 repeater (100 Hz tone). This net starts as a formal net with check-ins and an opportunity to ask questions of the board and members. Then switches to an informal net where participants can chat about anything on their mind.
DRIVE, LOVELAND, CO. It is located off E. Eisenhower (US Hwy 34) with an adjoined Kohl's parking lot. Join us at 8 am for breakfast, then a presentation at 9 am. . Every effort is made to post the meeting's agenda before the meeting is held.
The presentation will be on the history of Morse and codes. Please bring any older or unique morse equipment to show off if you have any.
The next NCARC Board of Directors meeting will be either Tuesday August 5th or 12th at the Golden Corral in Loveland (the same one as the general club meetings). We'll start meeting there around 5:30 for dinner and informal conversation. The formal meeting will start at 6:00pm.
The 2014 Hamfest was great, and everyone had a good time. Mark you calendars for January 17th for the first Hamfest of 2015!
