Please consider signing up for Amazon Smile. Signing up is easy, it costs you nothing, and the AARC gets a tiny sliver of profit that would otherwise go right into Jeff Bezo's pocket. Step by step instructions here.

Portable Operation

backpack.pngThis Thursday, as we recover from too many cards, flowers, and chocolates, the AARC is proud to bring you a presentation on portable operations, from one man pack portable, to camping style operation, to Field Day style portable. Special emphasis will be on a variety of antennas that fit the bill for 'portable operations' many of which fit well in a backpack.  So if you want to be a 'Happy Camper', you'll be at the club house 7:30 PM on February 15th.

Valentines Day Cancellation

heart.pngAfter learning the errors of my ways, I have decided to skip the Morse Code Class scheduled for 7:00 PM on Valentines Day, this Wednesday.  Some times other things do indeed come before Amateur Radio.  Practice via Skype will be held Friday and Monday as usual.  The next letters to be studies are C, Q, P, I and maybe either F or L.  Have a happy Valentines Day!
