The next regular monthly meeting date scheduled on February 25th, has been changed to March 4th with the meeting taking place in the large meeting room at the Guernsey County Administration building. CARA has voted to postpone the meeting one week to allow members to be able to attend the IA Damage Assessment Workshop hosted by the Muskingum County EMA. The Guernsey County EMA needs volunteers to assist with and/or train Damage Assessment Teams during a large event/emergency. This is an excellent opportunity to further your emergency management skills.
A Century of Radio Book
Come along for a look back to the beginning of wireless communications in Guernsey County from spark gap transmitters to today’s solid state all-mode transceivers. The book follows the journey of CARA members through the years along with photos of events, members, and their QSL cards.
We would like to congratulate KA8NZS and the book committee for bringing us an in-depth look back at the 100 years of CARA. The club would also like to extend a special thank-you to W8SU for his contributions as well.
The book may be ordered online via CreateSpace. You may also order a book by contacting KA8NZS or KD8MSL.
We will be ordering apparel and need a minimum of 10 items. Garments will come as CARA Blue with white lettering, or if you wish, blue lettering on white. For more information, or to place an order, contact KD8MSL.
Waller-McMunn Radio Station Museum – WEBE
Mr. Adair, a local historian, has generously volunteered to host the building on his property. Mr. Adair’s Railroad Empire located just East of Cambridge on US Route 40. The building remains the ownership of the club.
We were able to, with the help of generous donors and through fundraising events, raise enough money to have the station moved. Since then, the building was repainted and with a ramp built for better accessibility.
There’s still work yet to be done to the building, but we are glad to preserve a piece of radio history.
