Date   
Thursday night mini drill

Tom WA7TBP
 

Good morning all:

Since tomorrow is the third Thursday, we will have a mini exercise after regular net. We will be doing a 6 meter tune up on SSB and FM. I will monitor the Cougar repeater while we do the 6 meter tune up. Be flexible, as I will move the frequency up or down depending on use or interference. We will start the exercise on 50.150 MHz upper side band. I will do a long call on frequency and then standby for stations to check in. Hopefully, many of you will be able to hear one another. Once we have completed the single side band contacts, we will switch to 52.54 MHz FM simplex. We will use no shift or tones on this frequency. I will do a long call on this channel, then standby for check ins. Again, I hope you will be able to hear one another. As a reminder, monitor the Cougar repeater during the exercise if you are able.

Looking forward to hearing you on 6 meters.

73,

Tom, WA7TBP

Re: Shirts Name Badges Stickers Estimates

Rowland
 

You can pick what you like.  Unless the club settles on a particular color for the shirt you can pick any color you want.  I agree with the logo without the mountains.  Not so busy.


Thanks,

Rowland

Rowland,
Thank you for supplying this information. I prefer the name badge without the mountains because it is crisper, but of course, either way.  Also, did you select a specific style or do we get to choose individually which of those styles and colors suit us? I am pretty much done purchasing man-style ham radio t-shirts.

Thank you and 73,

Robin, WA7CPA

Hello,

Here is some information I have on shirts, etc.  Remember these are close estimates but final pricing will be obtained once a decision is made on style, color and so on.

Take a look and decide what you like and then we will discuss it at the next meeting in June. If any questions pop up let me know and if I don;t have the answers I will find out.


Thanks,

Rowland

Shirts

Rowland
 

The question was asked about using your own shirts to have SnoVARC logo placed on them.  Sandy she can do it but sometimes the material on other shirts do not work well so she cannot guarantee it will hold.


Thanks,

Rowland
