Once again there is sad news to pass along. Former member Charlie Tholin, KD8NLH, passed away July 3rd at his residence. He was 65. Charlie was an ACARA member from 2010-2013 following his completing the club’s licensing classes and successfully passing the Technician test March 2010.
He was a cheerful and friendly member who enjoyed talking to members and learning more about the hobby. Sadly his illness prevented him from becoming more involved in the last few years.
A memorial service will be held Sunday, July 13th at 3 PM at the White-Schwarzel Funeral Home in Coolville.
Congratulations to Greg Weinfurtner, NS80 for winning First Place, Single Operator, High Power Mixed Mode in the 2012 ARRL 10 Meter Contest with a score of 61,770 points. Find a copy of the certificate he just received and showed to the club at the February meeting here.
