  NNYARA  Fall Meeting and Swapfest October 25th Lake Pleasant, NY

10 AM - til 2pm  



Hello fellow NNY Amateurs,

 I hope you have had a chance to Vote for the Atlantic Division Candidates. There are two ARRL Leadership positions in this upcoming 3 years election cycle, the Atlantic Division Director’s and the Vice Director’s, 

Excerpts from the ARRL webpage are as follows and I quote:

{Two candidates are hoping to succeed Edgar in the Atlantic Division. Their current Vice Director Tom Abernethy, W3TOM, and Phil Theis, K3TUF, who ran for the office in 2011. There is a three-way race for the Vice Director’s position. Running are Scott Bauer, W2LC, who served previously as Western New York Section Manager; Bob Famiglio, K3RF, the current Eastern Pennsylvania Section Manager, and John Mueller, K2BT, the current Western New York SM.} 

So, please check your mail or email for the information so you can do just that … Vote!   We thank you for taking the time and attention to this important matter.   


NNYARA & NNY SECTION MEETING  All amateurs and interested folks are welcome!   

Please bring a notebook, netbook or laptop that you will be using to do FLDIGI/ FLMSG.

You will need to have a working external microphone or internal one in your computer.  It's not necessary to have a modem/radio interface for the radio. However if you have one, you can bring it along as well as a radio interface or working station.   We hope to be able to have folks ARES/RACES amateurs, EC, DEC and anyone interested in doing digital communications for NTS or just routine traffic be able to send and copy messages in VHF, UHF and HF.  This will be a time to get the bugs worked out hopefully and begin to enjoy the Digital Modes available right now for future communications.   Any equipment you would like to swap or sell also is welcome. We look forward to seeing you at this fall NNY mtg.   Talk in on 147.160 . Now for Specific Directions go to WWW.NNYARA.NET
