Lon Stuart (WM7E) has been putting together the club newsletter for....well...longer than a lot of us have even been in the club. He's asked to "retire" from the position of club newsletter editor, as life and other responsibilities are taking up a lot of his time and attention these days.
I hope you all can join me in thanking Lon for his many years of tireless service. Please give him a shake of the hand and a pat on the shoulder next time you see him, as he has done a grand and wonderful thing for a lot of years.

Our new Fusion Repeater which supports the ARES Frequency of 449.925 is now online. One critical change you all must make to use this repeater is to enable a 100 Hz PL Tone. It is linked to the 147.420 Simplex Frequency for the Thursday ARES Net.
