Order Your Field Day Shirts & Pins NOW! Print E-mail

Field Day ShirtWe are now taking orders for Field Day tee shirts and pins.  It seems like a long time until Field Day but it will be here before you know it!  Be sure to mark June 27th and 28th on your calendard NOW!

This year the order will be placed two weeks earlier than last year.  Last year the order was placed six weeks before Field Day and the ARRL was already sold out of some sizes of shirts.  So, this year it's planned to place the order on April 28, the day after the 2nd meeting in April.

You can order three different ways.  Catch N5NA at a club meeting or Saturday coffee meeting, send a check with a note of what you want to MARC, P.O. Box 4401, Midland, TX  79704, or order online.  The tee shirts are $13.00 and the pins are $5.00.  However, if you order online the tee shirts are $13.50 and the pins are $5.40.  This is so the club doesn't lose money with the PayPal fee.  All orders must be paid in advance.

The shirts look sharp this year.  You don't want to be the only one at Field Day without a cool looking tee shirt so get your order in early!

What Happened at the Meeting? Print E-mail
Monday, 23 February 2009 21:52

At tonight's meeting it was voted to purchase an Elecraft K3/100 complete with tuner, filters, TCXO, and microphone.  There was also a discussion on purchasing a computer projector and large screen but this was tabled until after the hamfest.  It was voted that the FT-990 should be sent off to have the transmit audio problems repaired.

We received a reply to the request Robert Wood, W5AJ, made to HEB to donate some food items to the club for use in the concession stand at the hamfest.  HEB stated they were unable to grant out request.

Mike Partusch, KC5MAI, presented the program.  It was a PowerPoint presentation on HF Mobile Installation and Operation from the ARRL.

Welcome to the New MARC Website! Print E-mail

Welcome to the new MARC website.  It is still under construction slightly to have the same information as the old website but it was decided to go ahead and make it live.

In addition to the new site the Gallery has been updated.  It has a few new fancy features.  Check it out!

You may find this website doesn't load quite as fast as the old one.  This site uses a content management system called Joomla and dynamically builds the webpages from a database.  Depending on the load on the server it may load faster or slower at different times.  Hopefully it will work out for us!

If you find any dead links or something not working please send an email to the Webmaster.
