Database Manager's Corner
We have a number of TDS forms that are overdue. In fact, over 27% of the repeaters
in our database have not been updated in two or more year’s. If your TDS is not current,
the deadline to have your TDS information included in the 2011 – 2012 ARRL Repeater
Directory is 12/31/10. So take a minute and check your entry in the MARC Repeater
Directory to see if it is time to update your records.
Elections took place at the September meeting. The MARC board would like to
thank outgoing Director Ron Gordon W8YUC for his many years of service. Ron
opted to retire from his postion of Director at the end of this term. Thank
you Ron for your many years of service.
