Well, the transformation of the Concrete Tent from a garage to a Ham Shack has started....
With the suggestion and permission of Rich, KD8KBO the Concrete is getting a Radio Station position.
On Saturday March 30, 2019 a few souls came out to the Tent to begin the clean out, demolation and construction of a Radio Station position for the Club.
We moved several storage cabinets and other items to install a counter are where the Club can hold events from.
While construction is still ongoing, this was the firsts days work...
And Larry N8OWS says "NO ONE" sits on the Table.......

It is with great sorrow that the Woodchuck ARC has lost a Dear Member this Morning.

Bill Salem, N8MXU, was the last original founding member of the Woodchuck ARC.

Bill was recently honored by the Woodchuck's for his service to the Club and Ham Radio in general.

We will post more information as it becomes available:    Obituary Info    

 

From Dave, K8WRS:

"I am sad to report the loss of the last continuous member of the original Woodchuck Amateur Radio Club, Bill Salem who passed away on March 23, 2019.
Bill Salem stayed with the club in both good and bad times over the many years and sought to make the club a better place for us all.
We will miss his quite demeanor and the willingness to share his knowledge of radio with us over the years, he will be missed.

To those of us who knew him for many years he will be missed in many, many ways. I personally met him 27 years ago when I joined the Woodchuck A.R.C. and enjoyed his company at many club events when we were both a bit younger and had more energy, please read the information below concerning the visitation and funeral arrangements contained in the attachment below forwarded to me by Larry (N8OWS) who requested I forward this info to the membership."

 

God Bless and Keep MXU.....

Well sort of........

Thanks to Larry N8OWS we have a redisgned logo that be manipulated to increase it's size to fit many projects.
An issue we found with the older logo was that if we wanted to make it larger for a project, such as a banner, when you increased it's size it became very fuzzy.
Larry was able to find a graphic person that was able to re-draw for us.

Thank you Larry (N8OWS)
