Garden at the Comm Center

W1PPL, under guidance from horticultural director KC1YL, spreads some mulch on the garden at 100 Fairfield!

(Yes, the FD gave us permission!)

 

Trailer cleanup and inventory complete

Thanks to Tom K1TA, Dee N1ZD, Lisa KC1YL, Paul W1PPL, Rob (K3PUG soon) and Paul WB2JVB, the trailer has been inventoried and cleaned up. Thanks to Lisa for providing a great breakfast with homemade egg casseroles and pastries (see, you should show up at these things!!).

Plans were made on how to install some shelves to better hold the boxes of  supplies. Dee and Paul W1PPL will be working on this. The club expects to spend some funds to finalize the trailer.

Also, 4 of the older tables were deemed unusable and are going to the dump. The club will need to get 4 or 5 plastic picnic tables to replace them. We save the 3 large tables normally used for the kitchen setup at field day.

Trailer inventory and cleaning Saturday!!

This Saturday, April 22, we will be pulling the GNARC trailer out of the lot and taking it to KC1YL’s house to inventory and clean it out. If you can help, please let us know! Free breakfast could be involved….!!

17 New Hams!

Last night at the GNARC comm center, we minted 17 new hams. 16 technicians and one general. This follows a 6 week class taught by Jon AI1V and Paul WB2JVB.  Tom K1TA, Lisa KC1YL, Paul W1PPL and Curt W1FSM all helped with the class.

Special thanks to the many other VE’s who came by to help us get through the testing! Ernest, Steve, Jeff, Phil, Bill, Donna. I am probably forgetting someone!

If you hear some new KC1 calls on the air in a couple of weeks, please say hello.

VE Session – Wed Mar 29th 2017

This coming Wednesday, the 29th, a VE session will be held at the GNARC comm center from 6:30pm until completed.  The comm center will not be open for regular visitors, only VE’s and the test takers. If you know someone who would like to take the test, please let Lisa KC1YL know. We have a large crowd, but can probably fit one or two more.  Thank you.

Test post for FB integration

This is a test to see if the post shows up on GNARC Facebook page.

GNARC moves to new Email List

Effective as of 3/18/2017, GNARC has completed the move from the QTH.NET reflector to Google Groups for our email discussion lists.

All current members of the old list have been migrated. 

You DO NOT have to have a GMAIL account, or even be a member of Google groups to receive and send to the group, you just need to be enrolled. You must have a Google group account (which can be your normal email) to read and post using the web interface.  It is recommended you create a Google group account, so that you can change your name to have your call sign in it.

Contact Tom K1TA or Paul WB2JVB for help. Emails are on the directory page.
