I would like to invite you to visit the Portage County Amateur Radio Service (PCARS) for our November 2019 meeting! Everyone is welcome to attend, and this would be a very good month to do so. If it’s been awhile since you’ve been to a meeting, come out and see what we’re doing – you’ll be glad you’re a member.
November is the month that PCARS dedicates it’s 50/50 drawing to help support a local charitable organization called The Center of Hope. The Center of Hope provides food and meals to the disadvantaged citizens of Portage County. Our contribution started out small, but has grown over the past 15 years. Last year we raised and donated over $9000 to this worthy cause! We would certainly appreciate your help. For our November 50/50 the club’s portion is donated to the Center of Hope and there are usually somewhere between 30 – 50 items to be won! This year’s auction will include a new, Yaesu FT-450 HF Radio, some DMR handi-talkies, a handful of BaoFeng handi-talkies and way too much other stuff to list here. It’s going to be a fantastic night, and you could go home with a nice prize. (If you are unable to attend but would like to support our effort, you can donate directly to the Center of Hope through the PCARS web-site, www.portcars.org . There is a PAYPAL button in the upper right of the homepage designated for the Center of Hope donations.)
Another really good reason to attend is to support our OHIO Section Manager, Scott – N8SY, who will be receiving the ARRL’s Knight Distinguished Service Award at the meeting. Presenting the award will be Dale Williams – WA8EFK – the Great Lakes Division Director.
Don’t worry, we’ve got room for everyone who wants to venture out to visit with us! The meeting will be held on Monday November 11, 2019 at 7:00 PM. PCARS meets at the Kent American Legion Post 496, located at 1945 Mogadore Rd. Kent, OH 44240. The meeting will be held in the Underwood Hall in the Legion. I hope you’ll join us for fantastic evening!
