Greetings to all our club members and Friends of the KCRA

The Holiday Party has been scheduled for Tuesday, December 14 at 0700 pm. We have posted an ‘Event’ sign-up on our site. Please sign up if you plan on attending, so that we may get a tentative head count. You may pay us $10 in advance at the November meeting, or please pay at the door. December’s general meeting is canceled because of the holiday party.

The November meeting, John, KB2RIF, will be helping us build a 2m, 440 and 220 Quarter Wave Ground Plane Antenna during the meeting, that you can take home. There is no charge for the parts.

This is a reminder that nominations for all offices of the Kings County Repeater Association were closed during the general club meeting in October. There were no challengers for any of the offices, and Jim KC2LEB stepped up to fill the open Newsletter Chairperson position. Elections will be held for the board members at the November club meeting in accordance with our bylaws. The new officers assume office on January 1st of the year they were elected.

We have had a good year with many interesting public events planned, and new ones planned for the year to come! We will be participating in HAM Radio University, join us there and support your club. Come and see some of the most interesting demonstrations and lectures from fellow HAM’s. Next year we will be holding a small break out class on how to program the various radios by our experts Elmer’s! Bring your HT, software, patch cords, and documentation!

The Kings County Repeater Association needs your support at our meeting each and every month! If you have any ideas that pertain to amateur radio, we would like to hear about them. I think most of us who were at the meeting are members of the ARRL. If you are not, I would like to ask you to consider becoming a member of the ARRL. The ARRL has a lot to offer you in many ways, and it protects our HAM bands from commercial use!

73’de KB2PSI, Vinny
