Thank You Veterans!

Today is Veteran’s Day!
Please take the time to thank a Veteran for their work and sacrifice.
Please take the time to thank family members of Veterans that have served our Country.
Without their sacrifice and dedication we would not have the Freedoms that we enjoy today.
Lastly, don’t forget to pray for our currently serving Armed Forces personnel!

We Salute you Veterans and currently serving personnel!

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

How would you like to meet in person again?

April Meeting Cancelled

Hello Everyone,

With the current outbreak of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) and the precautions that are being taken everywhere, including schools being closed and limits on gatherings in place and the current health and safety precautions being put in place we will cancel our April Monthly Meeting.

We believe that this decision is in the best interest of our members and their families.  I hope that this will pass soon and we can all get back to life as usual, but in the meantime, we are taking this situation and the precautions necessary very seriously.  We want to make sure that everyone is kept safe.  In the interim we will continue to monitor the situation and if the situation warrants we will take extra precautions in the coming months.  Currently, we are looking at the short-term and acting within the best interests of the membership, family, and community as a whole.

Please forward this to anyone else who may need to know or pass it on in other means.

– 73 and stay safe during this current situation.

Name and Address Change

Welcome to our site once again. We have had a name change and a web address change. You can still reach us at cnyara.org, but we are now set to use cnyarc.net.

This change came about where we needed to for tax purposes and so to star everything off right we moved forward and made some changes. This may come as shock to some, but it is a change for the better. We are now known as the Central New York Amateur Radio Club. Only our name has changed, while the people and the focus of emergency communications and fellowship within the Amateur radio community has not changed. Please feel free to mention us, share this and other posts to friends and family so they know we are still here with only a slightly different change.
