We are looking at offering a General class. Tenatively we are planning for October 25 and November 1 in the community room at the Poudre REA building (7649 REA Pkwy, Ft. Collins; on 392 east of I-25) . This will follow the same format as the previous technician classes with a full day of instruction followed the next week with a Q&A and test session. If you are interested in this contact the PAO.
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 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.
In place of the normal club meeting in September, we will be having a picnic. Tenatively this is scheduled for 1pm-5pm. Location is Spring Park in central Fort Collins. The address is 2100 Mathews; east of College between Prospect and Drake. You can find a google map here. If you have suggestions for food or activities, or wish to help out send a message to the PAO.
