DARC Christmas 2020 Greetings!

Merry Christmas to all! Hope this holiday time is a good one for friends and family (properly socially-distanced, of course!).

Santa was good to the club and brought us an early present this year. The 147.00 repeater is back on the air with a new antenna in a new location, and its service and range should be better than ever! Check it out with the radio that Santa drops off for you. And remember that the repeater now uses a 123.0 tone, so set up your new radio accordingly.

The club had a good year with a number of new members. Unfortunately we had to increase the club dues to $20.00 per year beginning in January, but the dues have been the same for probably more than 40 years. If you can get a check in the mail before the end of the year, however, the old $15.00 dues are in effect. Pay for multiple years and save! Send your dues to:

PO Box 9
Decatur, AL 35602-0009

Lastly, the club sentenced the same officers from 2020 to an additional year. The officers are:

  • President Mike Findlay KD4TGC
  • Vice-President Steve Vibbert KD2JSW
  • Secretary Richard Matthews KB4CAY
  • Treasurer Lester Christophe W5GSU

Have a great Christmas, a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year, and plan to join us for the next club meeting on January 5th.

Richard Matthews
