FCC Fees

The FCC is looking for comments on the issue of imposing fees for changes to our license. This article below from the ARRL states the information you need to know regarding this. We could be changed an increased fee for changes to our licenses and for new operator licenses. The proposed fee increase is to $50 for a license instead of the $15. This is going to limit the number of people that want to get a license based on cost. Check out the article and make your voice heard.

How are you all doing?  How would everyone like to get together and have a meeting without radios, phones, or any other distractions?

We have officially made the changes to our Club page on Facebook. Adding the Club to the name and removing the Association from the Name. Also, you can find @CNYARC instead of the old @CNYARA16.

We have also changed our username on Twitter to reflect our new name. We had already changed the profile to have the Club, but now we have adjusted the username as well. Instead of @CNYARA we are now @CNYARC_NET. Yes we had to had the underscore sign to the name.

Hope you all are staying safe and healthy.
