January-May 2019 Meeting Location Change

ATTENTION! ATTENTION!

The meeting location for January through May 2019 has changed to the Mecosta-Osceola Central Dispatch Conference Room in Paris, Michigan.  http://mcd911.org/

Oh such fun we’ll have in Paris.  This will allows us to focus on some hands on activities and get some time in the ham shack.  We look forward to seeing all of you at the meetings.  The January meeting will include a program on net etiquette.  We hope you’ll join us for the fun.

Happy Hamming!

BRAARC Members Support Project Starburst

It’s time again for the N8PUG Food Drive because there is never a time for hunger. We need your help to collect food items. Your donation of non-perishable food items will be accepted at the December club meeting and holiday extravaganza – pot luck dinner.

There are families that need our help to keep food on their tables. The N8PUG Food Drive can help fill a small part of this need but only with your help. Check your emergency food stocks for items that are nearing their expiration dates. This way you can refresh your food stocks and donate still usable items. Rotation of food stocks is an important aspect of household emergency planning. Please only bring as much as you can spare.
N8PUG
The club food drive was originally organized by late club member James Orlowski, N8PUG (1960 – 2009). Known to every club member as Jim, he was a man of action in preventing hunger in our community. Jim, a man of little means, always donated more food than any other club member. We lost a dear friend in his passing but we honor his memory by helping feed those around us that are in need.

The N8PUG Food Drive benefits Project Starburst through the collection of non-perishable food items. Annually, BRAARC member collect and donate many food items during the club’s annual holiday celebration.

Hello world!

What happened to the club website?

The BRAARC website is now using the WordPress platform.  The site is under development and will change often as development continues.  If there is something that seems out of place or doesn’t work, it is likely a test underway.

Many site use WordPress.  It offers a clean, modern, easily maintainable, and robust blog style website platform.  Take a look around and let us know what you think.

The W8ZNH QSL Museum is also using a WordPress Plugin to offer a better experience to those wishing to view a small section of the collection.  The QSL Museum can be viewed while visiting the site at the link above.

enjoy!
