2021 June News

Our most sincere condolences to Bruce & Char for their loss of long-time pet and companion Paula. What a sweet & loving girl!



The club has generally not held July meetings over the past number of years.  Though I was planning on one this year - there is just a lot going on with the club.  I have decided not to hold a meeting on July 8th while we are preparing for a rather large event on the 10th. There is no pressing business to take care of, certainly nothing that cannot wait until September.


Thank you for all you do for the club, & 73!  Steve - K9STT

VE Session yields 1 new ham!

DX ENGINEERING CEO Tim Duffy visited us at our June Meeting. Tim Duffy (K3LR), did a live presentation via Zom - on antenna building at our June 10th meeting. More info about Tim here ->K3LR  Tim regularly does his antenna building presentation at Ham Vention - bring your Questions!

Arde Nelson our new Honorary Member of M&M ARC!
At our May meeting, Arde Nelson (KA9WAR) was recognized for his many years of service and support to the Marinette & Menominee ARC with an Honorary Membership for life, only one of a few in the club's history. Most recently recognized for his organization of the Peshtigo Historical Days "Special Event Station" coming up later this year, Arde was appointed as Honorary Chairperson of the committee for the 150th Anniversary of the Peshtigo Fire by President Steve (K9STT). "Arde was instrumental in securing a spot for the ham radio special event and would likely not be happening without Arde's hard work", said Steve.


HELP!   Volunteers Needed for Club events

Let's face it - summer is coming and we're all making plans to make the most of it.  Volunteering for a few hours doesn't consume a full day and gives us an opportunity to get together with other hams for a little fun!  Consider donating a little time to raise some money for the club this year, we'll all be better off for shouldering a bit of the burden!
