November Newsletter

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!  Here's the news for the Muncie Area Amateur Radio Club in November:

All 2019 officers were re-elected to serve again in 2020.  2020 officers are Drew Bennett, K9HMX, President; Bill Walker, N9RI, Vice President; Tony Miller, KD9ANS, Secretary; Zack Needler, KD9HHS, Treasurer.

Totals from September's White River Cleanup are in!  23,000 lbs of trash and 30 tires were removed from the river.  In the last 13 years, 130,300 lbs of trash has been removed.  Thanks to all who assisted in the communications team this year.  Next year's White River cleanup will be Saturday, September 19th, 2020.

In October, we had a VE testing where Muncie got a new Amateur Extra!  Thanks again to the VE's and instruction team.

Several of us have been gathering at 8:00 pm on Sundays at 50.400 MHz for a 6 meter AM Net.  The net ends with plenty of time to join in the 9:00 MAARC Sunday Night Net on 2 meters.  Thanks to WA9TGT and the ECI-QRP for starting this up, it's a lot of fun!

Upcoming events:
November 9th 10:00 am Muncie Foxhunt --  Starting point is west parking lot of Maring-Hunt Library.  We have a new fox this month, so let's go hunt him down!

November 25th 6:30 pm MAARC November meeting @ Maring-Hunt Library meeting room.

2019 Christmas Dinner will be December 14th 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm at 418 W Adams St. Muncie, IN 47305.  This will be a pitch-in dinner just like last year.
