FEBRUARY THOUGHTS FROM ME TO YOU

Swapfest date change!!

New Date is May 4th!!

PARC February meeting was another success!!  Great attendance!  Great Program!  Great fellowship!  It is with pride and gratitude that I serve this great Club!!

As usual our meeting was fun and informative.  Melinda KG5NWD and Jamie AB7II have been busy planning exciting changes to our approach to membership.  I look forward to future developments including a standard renewal date for all memberships and Prizes, Prizes, Prizes!!  Stayed tuned for more.

It is with pleasure we welcome a renewed General Class Ham, who for the record aced her test with 100%.  Congratulations Billie.

Thanks to Robert KF5UKB for our program on “Crowbar Overvoltage Protection”.  Great presentation and great interaction from everyone.  Keep ’em coming Robert WR9B!!

As usual, Brad’s N5LUL Contest Report offered many opportunities to expand our horizons and have a lot of fun.  His picks can be found on our website.  Check it out!!

Don’t forget the date change for the Swapfest.  New date is May 4th.  Change due to the conflict with the USA Cycling Mountain Bike Marathon National Championship Race.  USA Cycling moved their date from April 27th to May 11th.  We will “improvise, adapt, and overcome”.  Jamie AB7II is in charge of this event and will be coordinating repeater testing in Palo Duro Canyon and volunteers.  If you are interested in participating, please get in touch with him.

Be sure to check our website http://www.w5wx.net often.  Melinda KG5NWD is always updating to make sure we are keeping you informed of Club news and events.  Under QST’s you will find information on those we need to remember who are having health issues.  Under Operating Info there is information about Ken’s WB5QLI Echolink.  Don’t forget our Saturday breakfast gab sessions at 8:30 am at Market Street, 26th and Georgia as well as Wednesday lunch gatherings (check website for locations).  Both of these afford an opportunity for fellowship in an informal setting. Great Fun!!!

February is the month for Valentine’s.  I wish all of you a month filled with love.  Take care of each other.  Cherish the loved ones in your life.  See you next Month.

73!  Kim  WK5X
