Member Roster Updates
Keep those cards and letters coming, folks!
I received several updates for new grid locators and for a few silent keys.
There are some minor updates to PNW Nets, too.
These are published on the website, but I'm always ready for more.
Send your email request to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we'll take care of it.

2013 VHF Conference on Oct 12-13, 2013 in Moses Lake, WA.
to our PNWVHFS members and enthusiasts:
The board of directors has just informed me they have decided on
Oct 12-13, 2013 for the conference in Moses Lake. The reasoning can be
- Oct 12-13 is a long weekend for both U.S. (Columbus Day) and Canada
(Thanksgiving Day). This provides extra travel time for everyone.
- We are in competition for speakers. If we choose Oct 4-6 then we can
create a conflict with potential speakers that would then have to choose
between the Texas international EME gathering and our conference.
- Comments have been received and included from directors and members
and interested parties around the greater area.
To review, and as a convenient reminder of other calendar events around
this one, here are some happenings that are NOT impacted by our choice:
- Sept 14-16 - ARRL Sept VHF Contest
- Sept 28-29 - ARRL EME Contest (Microwaves)
- Oct 4-5 — Texas Six Meter EME Barbecue
- Oct. 26-27 - ARRL EME Contest (VHF/UHF)
Much more planning is in the works, and we will keep you informed as
Eric Olson N7EPD, President PNWVHFS
