January Nixa ARC Club meeting THIS Saturday, January 8 at 6:00 p.m.

This Saturday, January 8, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. will be the monthly meeting of the Nixa Amateur Radio Club.

This month it's back to normal, with us meeting at the Nixa Fire Deptartment General HQ located at 301 S. Nicholas Rd in Nixa.

Not only will we give you some updates on the latest grant requests and donations for the 53.270 remote receiver project, but we'll also update you on some of the work going on behind the scenes. You won't want to miss it!

Also, we're up to 18 paid members for 2011, almost 1/5 of the way to our goal of 100 members in 2011. So, if you haven't renewed yet, you can do so this weekend at the club meeting or visit www.nixahams.net and then click "join" and you can do so online. See club Treasurer Jeff Morrissey, KB0WVT, to pay your dues Saturday.

And, to top it all off, we will be welcoming Bill Wheeler, K0DEW, and Mike Edwards, WB9M, from the Missouri DX Contest Club. They will be giving us a presentation on the whys and hows of the ARRL's Logbook of the World, aka LoTW. So if you're an avid DXer, just getting started, or thinking about getting started, this will be a presentation for you.

So pack the house this weekend as we welcome the first of many guest presenters in 2011 to learn about DXing and Logbook of the World.
