In addition to being a forum, you have the option to receive emails for each post or a daily summary, so you don't have to check the forum every day for new posts and comments.

New Monthly Meeting Location

Jason Garneau, K1LOL
STARC President

Due to event changes at the Elks Lodge, STARC meetings will once again be taking place at the St. Albans VFW beginning with this month's meeting (July 25th). If you have never been to the VFW before, please use the front door for access to the meeting hall. For security reasons, the door is locked at all times - so please press the door bell "buzzer" button to the right of the door to gain access.

We would like to thank the Elks Lodge for providing us meeting space for the last year!  

One final note - the 2019 STARC Hamfest will still take place at the Elks Lodge on Saturday, August 10th. We hope to see everyone there!
