Message From the President
Greetings to all. The winter is now over, the sun spot cycle has passed it low point, and Field Day is approaching. WEARC continues to meet every Wednesday evening and is conducting VE sessions on the third Tuesdays of every month. I want to thank Ken Rosen, old WA2VCI. now W2KR. for his efforts in seeing that there are enough VE's to conduct these sessions each month. There has always been hams and prospective hams who come to these sessions to take the exams. Providing these VE sessions on a monthly schedule provides support the ham community.
The club is now in the process of selecting candidates for next years officers. WEARC is now completing its third full year of operations and we continue to hold our nucleus together as well as having new members join us. This year we are again going to conduct the Field Day operations at the Trotter Tract which is behind the Essex Fells Service Building. Our Chopper Brian Keegan, KF2HC, has started the preparations, and I expect we will have another successful weekend this June.
This past December we held our third annual holiday party at the club. Each year, it gets better. Everyone had a great time with excellent food and family camaraderie. I want to thank Joe Valley, WO2X, and Ann Keegan, KB2YTL, for coordinating the efforts and everyone who helped with the food and work contributed thus assuring another successful party.
