As anticipated, Ed Roth (WD8KRS) stepped down after many years of service to the Radio Club as President. Replacing him will be Bryan Patterson (KB8ELG). The other club officers for 2011 are VP/Craig Szczublewski (KD8KBU), Treasurer/Lu Ann Kuney (KB8ELH), and Secretary/Angela Infante... (KB2AVN). Thanks to all in attendance at our temporary location. And thanks to Paul Barnaby, the Fulton County Commissioner, for making the Agricultural building available to the club on such short notice. In other news, the Hamfest is set for June 4th, 2011, and the club will also have a table at the Toledo Hamfest in March.

The Monday meeting will not be at the old board of education building in Wauseon. It will be at the Soil and Water office at 8770 St Rt 108 across from the Fulton County Fairgrounds. The meeting time is still 7:30pm. We were told the old board of education building is experiencing issues and would not be available. The county commissioner was certainly more then accommodating to open the Soil and Water building for our use on Monday.

The question was posed the other evening about the origins of Bud's Midnight Madness Net.  Most of this was pieced together from Dave Nelson, KA8KDS.....

Here are some regional Hamfests coming up for January/February within easy driving range of Fulton County:

As always, please check the ARRL Hamfest schedule for further details.

January Meeting Notice

A quick reminder we will be holding our regular club meeting on January 17, 2011.  The location is changing for 2011, we will no longer be at the Emergency Operations Center in Wauseon.  Our new meeting location will be at the old Board of Education building (also known as the old Nurses Quarters) near the intersection of S. Shoop Ave and Superior (602 S. Shoop Ave, close to the Fulton County Health Center) in Wauseon.  The meeting time is still 7:30pm.  This is the club officer election meeting, so please be sure to stop out.  This will also be Ed Roths last meeting as club president as he is stepping down from the position and not putting his name in the hat for re-election.  Thanks go to Ed for the years of service he put in as club president.

Pictures from the 2010 Club Christmas Dinner held at The Barn restuarant in Archbold, OH.  We had a really good turnout for great food and fun conversation.
