It's that time of year again. We ask that all members try to attend our January meeting to participate in our annual elections. All licensed STARC members are able to run for any position, and are encouraged to do so. This is our club to make it what we want, but that cannot happen without participation from our members. We have some exciting meeting topics and events to finalize for this year, as well!
The STARC Meeting and Election will take place on:
Date / Time: Thursday, January 25th - 7:30pm
Location: St. Albans VFW - 353 Lake Road, St. Albans, VT

It's that time of year again. Please remember to renew your STARC membership - which is based on the calendar year. All membership funds go toward repeater maintenance, club insurance, and other miscellaneous items required to keep STARC functioning every year.
The STARC website now contains a membership form you may fill out online. You may choose to pay online via credit card (via PayPal - no account needed), or print out the form and mail in with a check to STARC:
Please note the start time is 6pm, an hour and a half earlier than our usual meeting time.
We hope to see you there!

It is with great sadness, STARC has learned of the passing of fellow member and friend David DiPerna - KB1JME. Dave was a great man, well-known ham, and a key player behind the scenes at STARC. Dave was the trustee and one of the primary care-takers of the K1JAY repeaters. He will be greatly missed by all of us.

Today's St. Albans area ARRL VE Test Session ended with two new General Class Licenses earned, and two new Technician Class Licenses earned.
We even had one candidate with an EXPIRED General Class License, from the late '60's, who showed up with photocopies from a callbook that had his original General Class License callsign, take, and pass his Technician Class License, so his General Class License privileges would be re-instated!
STARC would like to thank the following VEs for helping to administer the exams: Eric N1RCX, David KC1APK, Jason K1LOL, and Michael N1FBZ.
The W5YI Franklin County VT Volunteer Examiner Team offers Technician Class Exam Sessions.
