Upcoming events:

We are having a GOTA/Project Day this coming Saturday (May 12th) from 9 till noon. If you need help with a project or would like to use the club station or lab come on over.
Field Day still need volunteers for setting up and taking down antennas. We also need some serving help with Saturday supper. You don’t need to be an antenna expert to help with the antennas, it is mostly just a little physical work. You will not be cooking dinner or washing dishes; just serving the food. Please contact Tony Romito (tromito99@gmail.com) if you can help.
Donations for Field Day would appreciated. It will help offset the expenses of Field Day. Please contact Amy (kd8skl@yahoo.com) you are interested.
Remember Hamvention and the fact we won “Club of the Year”. Please read Tom’s comments below. We would like a great turnout at the award ceremony.
If you are interested in PCARS clothing or hats, please visit our website portcars.org for purchase information (BIG notice at the top of the web page). You need to do this quickly to get your shirt before Hamvention.

Hamvention Note:

As you know, the Dayton Hamvention is fast approaching. This will be a special year for any and all PCARS members who are able to attend – PCARS is the Hamvention Club of the Year! This is a great honor for all of us, and I hope as many of you as possible will be there. The awards ceremony will be on Sunday, May 20th, sometime shortly after noon. (exact details to follow shortly)

We would like you to be there if at all possible! AND, we would like you to be wearing official PCARS apparel. The store for T-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, hats, etc… has been re-opened (see the home page at www.portcars.org ) and orders will be processed and made available to you prior to leaving for Dayton! This will be a great “photo opportunity” and I would like to see a “sea” of blue shirts with PCARS logos on them at the Sunday award ceremony! Order today to make sure you have yours.

More info on Hamvention will be available at the PCARS meeting on Monday May 14th. Hope to see you there!


Remember to check our calendar for all the great activities we have planned.
