          Norm Fusaro, W3IZ, Assistant Manager, Field Service & Radiosport Dept. reports that the Club Update mechanism has been upgraded. Now when a club updates the information on the ARRL club pages the changes are displayed as soon as the information is submitted. The tutorial on the club page has been updated to reflect the changes in the updating procedure. Here is the direct link to the pdf tutorial. You can copy and paste this link into your search engine. It is important to get the club information updated on a regular basis so that Club Contact information will be correct and reduce the number of items returned to HQ because of a bad address. The updating will also keep your club on the ACTIVE CLUB list.  Most know that a club once it is affiliated, it is affiliated forever, but to be considered an ACTIVE Club it needs to update its information at least every two years.  When new officers are elected it is a good time to make the updates.
If you have any questions about any of this or other club business please contact Norm at or call him at 860-594-0230.


         The Joplin Amateur Radio Club Hamfest was an event to remember.  The attendance was outstanding and there was an impressive number of commercial and flea market vendors.  The door prizes were amazing.  It was nice to hear all the applause when the grand prize was awarded.  John Frederick, N9GOU, JARC Pres. And Jim Scott, WB0IYC, JARC V-Pres. did a wonderful job making sure that the Hamfest was a success.  You had to be impressed with all the hard work by the JARC members and the air conditioned Joplin Trade Center facility.  This year’s JARC Hamfest was the only one in my memory that had a NO WAKE zone on the main exit.  At around 10:00 a.m., there was an enormous rain storm that produced so much rain that it created a flash flood in the tiny stream next to the Convention Center. The flood water began to rise at a fantastic rate and spilled over the banks into the lower end of the Convention Center parking area.  Realizing that the vehicles parked in that part of the parking lot were in danger, the JARC announcer informed everyone that they needed to move their cars.  Not everyone heard the warning, but many waded through the water and moved their vehicles to higher ground.

          The St. Louis Suburban Radio Club will be turning October 17th into a mega-event weekend. The Oct 17th  weekend marks the opening of the club's special event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the completion of the Gateway Arch. To celebrate, the SLSRC will begin operating the special event call-sign WØA from October 17 to October 31st. Most of the special event will be operated by club members from their home stations. However, to get things kicked off with a bang, the SLSRC will set up a mini-Field Day configuration at Stacey Park to give this event a Grand Opening kickoff.  In addition to the WØA special event, the club will be hosting their annual picnic on that date.

          At the August Hannibal Amateur Radio Club meeting Larry Lauer, WB2UFO, made a presentation about the August 15th and 16th Mark Twain Lighthouse Memorial Event. The event is part of the International Lighthouse Weekend.  Arrangements were made with the City to use the shelter house at Glascock’s Landing on the riverfront. The Club has not participated in the International Lighthouse Weekend in 10 years. The Mark Twain Lighthouse will be on the air from about 9:00am to 7:00pm on Saturday Aug. 15th .  The HARC thanked Cliff, K0CA, Larry, WB2UFO, and Bonnie, WB0WAP, for designing some very attractive QSL cards and certificates.  Don Vary, KD0HHN, HARC President noted that the Mark Twain Lighthouse event went well.  The operation made 51 QSOs during this year’s event and that other than the weather being a little warm, it was a great day to be operating.

          Don’t forget to participate in the Route 66 on the Air this year. The Special event is supported by four Missouri Section Amateur Radio Clubs. The St. Louis ARC will operate as W6P, The Lebanon ARC will be W6O, The Springfield ARC W6R and Joplin ARC will be W6N.  September 12th through the 20th.   To get more info, go to
