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.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 10:00 AM at All Saints Catholic Church, 152 Main Street, Richford with Rev. Karl Hahr celebrating the Mass of Christian burial. Interment will follow in the All Saints Cemetery in Richford.

St. Albans area ARRL VE Test Session results

Saturday, November 18, 2017:

Author:
Michael Gladu, N1FBZ
STARC Technical Advisor

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.
