With COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing going on to protect everyone there has been a further change with our April meeting. We will be holding it as usual on April 7th 2020 at 7 pm at your radio in your shack safely at home. We will be meeting on the 145.170 repeater as our nets are usually run on at this time. So please join us on our first ever on-the-air club meeting.
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. – CNYARC
Hello Everyone, We have started something new and want to see how it plays out. The evening net, After Dinner Net, has been adjusted to a one night a week Net. It will be run on Wednesday nights for the foreseeable future.
Still keeping the same time and frequency. 145.170, which is back to where all our nets are being run. Thank you for understanding and we hope to hear you on the 145.170 at our 8 am First Cup Net Monday through Friday and at 7 pm for the After Dinner Net Wednesday nights only.
New updated scripts will be forthcoming for our website in the next week or so.
Looking to get your General Class license upgraded to an Extra Class license and need some instruction and assistance? Want to take the test right after the class is over with the instructors? Well, here’s your opportunity.
Starting March 17th 2020 and continuing through to May 2nd 2020 the LARC (Liverpool Amateur Radio Club) will be holding Extra Class training. The classes will be held on Tuesdays and Saturdays with the Final exam being on Saturday May 2nd.
Come Join the Fun! Our tenth annual RaRa Winterfest is right around the corner! As always, we will have our very popular crockpot cook-off and everyone is invited to bring their favorite creation to share. You are encouraged to bring anything you can make in a crockpot. We anticipate seeing, and eating all sorts of soups, chili, casseroles, lasagna, pizza, stew and who knows what else. As before, we will be awarding prizes of RaRa membership points to the top entrants. We are also inviting everyone to bring a dessert to share and of course, we will be judging dessert creations and awarding more RaRa membership points for the best one. We encourage you to put on your chefs’ hats and wow us with your culinary creativity.
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.
So as of our December meeting, we had elections and some offices have changed. Not a whole lot of change, but some. Each change of office was by unanimous vote. No abstentions or nays. It was an easy and comfortable change for the club.
President is still: Marc Araujo – KR2HWK Vice President is now: Dick Billings – KA2JFU Treasurer is still: Sean Phillips – KC2YGF Secretary is now: Bruce Prindle – WB2RLL
Board Member members: Andy Dennison – W2AND, Bruce Prindle – Wb2RLL, Josiah Araujo – KR2ECP.
Now don’t forget that our next monthly meeting is coming up on February 4th, 2020 at Theodore’s Restaurant in Canastota, NY, 1830 hours (6:30 pm). Hope to see you there.
Happy New Year to everyone. CNYARA hopes you had a safe transition from 2019 – 2020.
