Annual Peel-n-Stick Night
Thanksgiving is over, Black Friday is past, and Cyber Monday is winding down. Now it's time for "Peel and Stick" night. What is Peel and Stick night, you ask?
Well, each December, we mail nearly 4000 postcards to past visitors to the Hamfest. At the December club meeting, we peel the labels from the sheets and stick them to the postcards. Depending on how many members show up to help, the process takes about 45 minutes to an hour.
If you'd like to help, please mark your calendar for December 4, 2015 at 7:30. We will be meeting in the large conference room at the People's Community Center/Richland County EMA Office located at 597 Park Avenue East, Mansfield.
Yeah, yeah, if you look closely, you'll see those are flyers and tickets from several years ago. This year's postcards and tickets are orange, I think. I haven't actually seen them yet.
“Paperless” Amateur Radio License Policy
Beginning February 17, the FCC will no longer automatically mail a printed copy of your Amateur Radio License. The Commission has maintained for some time now that the official Amateur Radio license authorization is the electronic record that exists in its Universal Licensing System (ULS). However, they have continued to mail a hard copy of the license.

Downtown Receive Site
The antennas have been installed for the downtown K8RT receive site. There is still a lot more work to be done, but the outside work is complete.
