August 2021 Announcements
The next club meeting is Wednesday, August 25, at Joe's Italian Restaurant in Brenham. Joe's is located at Hwy. 290 at S. Market St, on the SE corner. As usual, the meal will commence at 6 pm, and the meeting at 7 pm. All are welcome.
We will have license testing available that evening as well.
Notice - as of July 28, the Bellville repeaters (UHF C4FM, Analog VHF and D-Star UHF/VHF) continue to be down due to an air conditioning and electrical fault. We have powered off the repeaters so they do not cook in the August heat! We hope to have the repeaters back in service as soon as the problems in the shack have been resolved.
Consequently, we have moved the Tuesday night net to the Cat Spring (formerly downtown Houston) repeater on 146.96 (minus offset) with a tone squelch of 103.5 Hz.
Reminder: Dues are due for the 2021-2022 year. Club dues are $20 for an individual, $21 for family. You can pay at the club meeting, or mail your check to:
