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 and clicking on the "Join N.A.R.C." link on the left hand side of the website.

The OMAR 2016 Hamfest is booked for January 9, 2016 at the Brighton Assembly of God Church. Mark your calendars now!  For more information and to download a flyer, go to and click on the Hamfest  link.
