Club Announcements (1/14/16)


The February club meeting will be on Saturday, February 13th, 2016  at the Nixa Fire Station at 711 N Main St. The February meeting will focus on getting folks on 6-meters.  We'll be modifying a Kenwood TK-690 at the meeting for use on the ham band to show folks how they can get on 6m FM with 100-watts pretty inexpensively.
This would also be a great meeting to catch up with newly re-elected Treasurer Jeff Morrissey, KB0WVT and pay your dues for 2016.  Individual dues remain at $12 with family dues at $18 (family members living in your house with you) payable by check to Nixa ARC or cash.  You can always renew online at www.nixahams.net and clicking on the "Join N.A.R.C." link on the left hand side of the website.  
Have you dreamed of joining the glamorous world of net control?  We are still looking for volunteers to do the NARC Thursday night net in 2016.  All you'd have to do is devote 30 minutes, one night a month, to run the Nixa ARC club check-in net on Thursday nights from 7:30 to 8:00 p.m. We currently have 4 slots filled, and need 1 more and maybe an alternate.  If you are not sure and want to try it out, the second Thursday is Guest / Mystery Net control day.  You don't even have to write the announcements.  If you have questions, feel free to call or email James Adkins and he can fill you in on the details.  


Club Announcements (12/31/15)

The officers wish the membership and the ham community a very Happy New Year filled with good DX.  

Have you dreamed of joining the glamorous world of net control? Well today is your day.  We are looking for volunteers to do the NARC Thursday night net in 2016.  All you'd have to do is devote 30 minutes, one night a month, to run the Nixa ARC club check-in net on Thursday nights from 7:30 to 8:00 p.m. We currently just have 2 slots filled, and need 3 more.  Please respond back ASAP if you want to volunteer to be an NCS.  You don't even have to write the announcements.  If you have questions, feel free to call or email James Adkins and he can fill you in on the details.  We need to know soon if you can help.  If we don't get the necessary NCS operators, we will unfortunately have to cancel the net.

The January club meeting will be back at the Nixa Fire Station at 711 N Main St. Larry Grinstead, WA0JZK, and the crew will be giving you the "full report" on financials, some new ideas for the 2016 NARCfest, and seeking ideas from YOU for the hamfest.  This would also be a great meeting to catch up with newly re-elected Treasurer Jeff Morrissey, KB0WVT and pay your dues for 2016.  Individual dues remain at $12 with family dues at $18 (family members living in your house with you) payable by check to Nixa ARC or cash.  You can always renew online at www.nixahams.net and clicking on the "Join N.A.R.C." link on the left hand side of the website.

Nixa ARC Club Christmas gathering - Saturday, December 12 @ 6:00 p.m.

The December club meeting will be at the residence of KB0NHX, located at 180 Sackett Brand Rd in Clever, MO. (37-2-4.13 N / 093-30-7.85 W)  James & Kim will be providing a pot of James's famous chili, and Kim will make a have a pot of beef & vegetable stew.  We will also provide a couple of plates of Christmas candy for the event.

We ask that those that come bring some condiments, such as saltine crackers and shredded cheese.  We will also need some pop or tea if you would like to bring that.  We would like for another person to bring a pot of chili and someone else to bring some type of soup, such as potato soup or chicken tortilla or similar.  And, if you have a favorite Christmas candy, or side like a cheeseball, we will need some of that, too of course!  There will be a sign-up sheet sent out via e-mail to the club's reflector & email list shortly.

The get together will start at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 12th.  If you are coming from Nixa / Republic / Springfield or in that general direction, find your way to the 4-way stop in Clever at Hwy 14 and State Hwy P.  Travel West (past Casey's) 1.4 miles to Metzeltein Rd.  Turn left and travel south 1/4 mile to the 3rd street on your right.  Turn right and travel west to the first and last house on the left.  I'll be listening on SMLRS if you get lost!
