Here is the August 2016 edition of the Ham Arundel News
Edit to add, by Mark/W2PAW: Highlights from this issue include the upcoming Maryland QSO party, our club radio shack clean up, an update from Arizona by Bob/AA3RR, Maryland QSO card designs, and National Night Out at Allen Pond Park in Bowie.
All, I have updated the 2016 Membership roster. Once you login as a member it will appear as a link in the left hand menu.

For those of you interested in VHF Century Club. Most of the VHF spectrum has been decently skipping off the atmosphere over the last few weeks. While this is great for those grid square chasers it is not good for our repeaters.
Here is the July 2016 edition of the Ham Arundel News.
Edit: Because of all the color pictures added to this issue, it wouldn't fit on the AARC site. I've posted it on my personal site and the link is here:
I plan to be at the club at 0900 tomorrow (Friday) to start getting things set up. The biggest things are shelters and masts. Make sure you have sunscreen, a hat and cool clothes. The forecast is for nice weather, but it can get hot really quickly. Bring your HT and we'll use the club simplex frequency to coordinate while we're on site. Let's have fun!

The Word is out. Doug Ellmore NA1DX is our official club HF Awards Manager. He can check cards for the following awards. Worked All States (WAS), Worked All Continents (WAC) and VHF Century Club (VUCC). Doug can not check for DXCC at this time.
I would like to invite everyone to the June 16th Anne Arundel Radio Club Meeting. We have a jam packed schedule and need to start on time and may run a bit over. We are very fortunate to have Mr. Bill Dobson N3WD our local DXCC Card checker to give a presentation on Log book of the world and DXCC. We will also be discussing the upcoming Field day. Finally your secretary has been working very diligently with the league since February and we have a new club perk that we will reveal at this upcoming meeting.
