May 1st VARC Meeting Briefing

VARC members and other area hams met this evening to enjoy each others company at “Chow Town” which is a fairly new oriental restaurant located over by the mall.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the food and the meeting area was very pleasant for socializing about ham radio.   Discussions centered around HF, DX, antennas, HamCram, repeater system upgrades, ways to promote amateur radio to the younger generation, field day in June, social networking tools, etc.   In order to encourage more activity and accessibility for members it was decided to change the meeting time from the first Tuesday of the month to the last Saturday of the month.   All those who are interested in amateur radio are always invited to socialize and to enjoy their favorite interest.
