Then annual NCARC club picnic is coming soon. It will take the place of our usual September meeting on the 17th. This year we will be at a new location because we outgrew the other park. We'll be at Rolland Moore Reservation Shelter #2 located at 2201 S Shields St. This is 2 lights north of the Shields and Drake intersection.
We'll have burgers and hotdogs starting at noon. The club will also provide chips, drinks, and paperware (plates, cups, plastic utinsils, etc.). We ask members to bring a side to share.
We'll have fox hunting for both new and experienced searchers starting at 1:30pm. If you've never done it before, it's the act of searching for a hidden transmitter. Very interesting and fun.
Also if you have a favorite new ham toy please bring it and show it off.
As many of you know, the 2 repeaters located on Horsetooth mountain (447.275 and 145.115) both have some pretty problems. James and the board have a propsal to repair the failed equpiment.
Since we are not having a normal club meeting this month, and winter is approaching fast, we are conducting this proposal/vote via email. The full proposal is available here.
James will be at the club picnic on Saturday to answer any questions you may have. You can also email questions to him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please send your vote to email@example.com. Voting will close at midnight on Monday September 19th.

Wednesday Club Net
The club holds a net each Wednesday at 6:30 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.
Gary AA0RX and Greg AD0JP, are interested in getting some activity going on 6 meters. Right now they both have vertically polarized omnidirectional antennas up, and are primarily working and monitoring on 50.130 MHz USB. Greg can be contacted for signal reports, antenna questions etc at firstname.lastname@example.org
