We will be offering a General class on October 25 with the test on November 8 in the community room at the Poudre REA building (7649 REA Pkwy, Ft. Collins; on 392 east of I-25). The main part of the class will be on the 25th from 8am - 5pm. On the 8th, we will get together at 8 for a question and answer session, with testing to start at 9. This test session will also take the place of Mike's usual test session, so anyone is welcome to come test. If you are interested in the class contact the PAO.
Proposed By Laws Ammendments
At the general club meeting on October 18th, the board presented a couple of proposed amendments to the bylaws. These amendments are intended to streamline club meetings, and to keep up with technology in the distribution of meeting minutes. The exact changes can be viewed here. We will be voting at the next club meeting on November 15th. Please plan on being there, or submitting an absentee ballot to the secretary via email.
Bill to excmpt ham antennas from HOA restrictions
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 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.
The next general club will be on Saturday, November 15, 2014. Club meetings are held on the third Saturday of the month at the Golden Corral, 1360 SCULPTOR 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 next NCARC Board of Directors meeting will be Tuesday November 11, 2014 at the Golden Corral in Loveland (the same one as the general club meetings). We'll start meeting there around 5 or 5:30 for dinner and informal conversation. The formal meeting will start at 6:00pm.
