Mancorad Dashes & Dots – Mid-July 2011

These club news briefs are posted to the Mancorad_WI Yahoo Group.

For the next several issues I will blog them as a courtesy to those not yet on that reflector.




Hello Everyone!

A quick update on Mancorad, and welcome to our second issue of “Mancorad Dashes & Dots” club email briefing.


The background processes to reestablish all of our permissions/coordinations/arrangements continues. Insurances are all up to date with Marsh Affinity, our insurer for the last 5-10 years.

Banking signature cards have been updated as well. We’re well on the way to getting everything back up to date.


Look for the restart of membership meetings in September!

We have our firstr program presentation volunteer, who will present for September. Again, if any of you have an interesting in being on the program schedule please let us know.

As a reminder there are no member meetings scheduled for July or August.

Meeting times are currently being reconsidered, please contact any of our officers with your suggestions.


As you may well have noticed the club’s additional call signs have been assigned to the repeaters in the repeater listings.

Our 146.610 repeater will become W9MTW and our 145.110 repeater K9MTW

The 145.110 K9MTW repeater is temporarily down as it is repaired after all the storms.

Once up it will receive the controller update planned for some time.

This will upgrade it in preparation for adding features.

Our W9DK club call sign is being reserved for club shack and club activity usage.


Hoping most of you saw the front page Chronicle article of Manitowoc Mayor Justin Nickels being put on the air by Scott W9JSB at Field Day. The Mayor did a wonderful proclamation recognizing the entire area amateur radio community while he was at the club. Due to the number of conflicts members had the club didn’t put on a significant Field Day effort outside of hosting the Mayor.


The website is a work in progress, under construction. Expect changes as it is made more maintainable and user friendly. The Mobile version will follow later.


Except for special events, Mancorad will be very light in using Twitter or Facebook. This may change as the youth membership become more active in Autumn.


The email remains active. All other email addresses may be intermittent or not working.

Club Leadership is President Tim N7TAL, Vice-President Scott W9JSB and Secretary/Treasurer Steve K9ZW
