As you know we have a dilemma each year scheduling our Hamfest around other dates in the spring particularly Holy Week and Easter, so we have projected out for the next 10 years when Easter was and then consequently when we would schedule our hamfest. Here it is. Get our your calendars out and add these dates! If you want to see how we came up with these dates you can check out the Hamfest version of our newsletter here.
The DStar repeater has been repaired. Please let us know if you have any trouble using it.
Please note that this week (Feb 10, 2019) we have discovered problems with the computer attached to the D-Star Repeater. Work is underway. We’ll report back when the problem has been solved.
We hope to resume publishing a MARA Newsletter in this new year. If you’d like to join us for the newsletters and keep up to date on what’s going on with the Repeater Association you can subscribe at the link below. Don’t worry about getting overloaded with email, at this time we don’t expect to publish more than 6 times a year, perhaps more if there is some late breaking news! You don’t need to be a member to subscribe. Join us today.
