Arizona Section Manager article for February 2001 QST

The 2001 amateur radio club listing has been mailed to 65 clubs. If your club has not received this mailing, please contact me and I will add it to the list and provide you with the necessary paperwork make sure it gets added to mine. Is your club affiliated with the ARRL? If not, then please consider going through the process and getting your club affiliated either as special service club or just affiliated. It still takes over 50% of the club membership belonging to the ARRL to achieve this status. The Northern Arizona DX club has 100% ARRL membership and they are listed as a special service club. The fall hamfest at Mesa community college was a success. The Scorpion club did a good jog and everyone seemed to have a good time. The next hamfest is the spring hamfest at Scottsdale Community college on 10 March 2000. The Arizona Amateur Radio Association will hold their annual hamfest event at DeVry on 10 April 2000. At the present time, I plan to be at both of these this events. The Arizona web site is alive and doing well. Tom Fagan, WB7NXH, has developed this web site for the Arizona section. The address is http://www.qsl.net/arrlaz/. At this time it has the recent club listings, hamfest information, and a few other items along with several links to other clubs and special web sites. As this web site progresses, we will add more items of interest, to include the list of volunteers. If you have questions or ideas on how to improve the web site, contact Tom at wb7nxh@arrl.net. Your ARRL membership dues can be renewed through your local ARRL affiliated club. This allows the club to get a small portion of the dues, $2.00. You still pay the $34.00 fee, but the club only sends in $32.00. Please keep your newsletters coming so I can keep up with the activities around the state. I receive newsletter from Dolan Springs, Yuma, Payson, Sierra Vista, and all points in-between. Next year the ARRL SW Convention will be in Riverside at the Holiday Inn. Starts reserving this time slot and make the necessary arrangements before you forget. For some reason, no one ran against me so I was re-elected to another two (2) year term as your section manager. My e-mail address is kd6xh@arrl.org, (see page 12 of this magazine under Arizona) and my home telephone number is 520-744-9095. If you call and I am not home, please leave a message and I will call you back. I am normally at home after 1930 hours each evening except for Thursday (Bowling). 73ís Clifford Hauser, KD6XH
