We are so sorry for Steve's (N7CPU) loss
We sadly report the loss of Steve Bowen's mother on Wednesday, August 27. There is a link if you might be able to help Steve cover the cost of her burial:
Please keep in mind that some club activities he has been involved in will have to be reassigned by the Board to others. We will update contact information for different projects now in Steve's care as soon as information becomes available.

Steve, KY7W has announced that the Mesa Thursday and Saturday breakfasts are moving to Village Inn in the northeast quadrant of Dobson Rd and Southern Ave.
Thursday breakfast begins at 6 AM while the Saturday breakfast begins at 8 AM.
Steve, N7CPU reports that we have been experiencing some intermod on the 449.60 repeater, causing signals to break up or causing some poor sensitivity at times. Generally speaking, the daytime and early evening hours see the most disruption
Our 2 meter repeater is up and running, but folks with rubber ducks will have limited range. Use of any kind of improved antenna will make a big difference in the repeater's accessibility.
The repeaters are linked full-time. Audio levels need to be balanced when the Technical committee can get time to look in on it.
