MARA has begun weekly net meetings again after a long “vacation”. We will meet every Thursday Evening at 8PM on the 147.150 repeater. We’ll check in, report on repeater news (if there is any), listen to the ARRL Audio News for the week and then brag, ask/answer questions, share ideas, in a round robin style discussion. You don’t have to be a member to join in, although we hope you will be inspired to join and help support the repeaters.
We are holding the January 2021 MARA Membership Meeting virtually again this month using Zoom. We will meet on January 11 at 7:30 PM. For a Zoom invitation please email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll send one along to your inbox.
At this meeting we will be presenting the Financials for 2020 as well as the Budget for 2021 and nominations and election of officers for 2021. See you there.
Please note: the 15 repeater will be used in support of the SET on October 5, 2019. For normal FM traffic please consider using our repeater at 76
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.
On going news items will be published here.
