I want to welcome all the new members to the Great River Amateur Radio Club and say thanks for all the member support!
Our membership has steadily been increasing and appreciate the activity of our new members! For example, one of our newest members, John, KD9ASC, has been helping members with their radio programming and is in the process of organizing a fox hunt. Chris, AD0FS has been offering his services as a lineman and demonstrating his DXing skills to other members. Thank you guys for your help!
The level of support Robert, KCØCJS has given toward this website endeavor is just unprecedented. Robert is an extraordinary website designer and has built an updated site for our club that allows for future expansion and interactivity. Member participation is welcomed by making comments to posts. If you would like to make a post let us know.
Many thanks goes to Fred, KB9JTD for being part of the Boy Scouts summer retreat program. Fred and I met with several Boy Scout leaders and provided information regarding our club, Field Day and Jamboree-on-the-Air events! The leaders showed much interest, including Sunday night net member Paul, KCØBGM who will act as our liaison between our club and the Boy Scouts.
Field Day is coming up and Chairman/Treasurer Loren, KA9IVP has been working diligently to make this event a success. Many thanks to Ed, WØOIC for providing his RV on the Red Cross site and will solidify our presence for the entire event! – for more info click here.
Bob, WBØWSE has been at it as usual. Working as Chairman of the Volunteer Examining Committee along with being Vice President and Secretary! I can’t say enough about his support for the club. Let him know how much we appreciate all he has done.
Lastly, I would like to recognize our Newsletter editor, Mike, NSØU. His contribution over the years has not gone unnoticed and our club appreciates all he has done. We will be presenting him with the prestigious Elmer Award during our Field Day event!
Be reminded we would like to have a new Editor, Secretary and Emergency Coordinator. If you are interested – notify me.
