    Surprisingly, we've receive no articles for the contest. With only three days left, it looks like we may need to extend or withdraw the contest.  Come on, folks!  The ARRL Antenna Book is a pretty good prize for a little effort.

    Did you notice that the VHF propagation map at http://aprs.mountainlake.k12.mn.us/ was offline for a while? Well. It is back online and is now using OpenStreetMaps (in lieu of Google Maps). They still have more work to do on the site, but it is starting to take shape. If you go to the main page, you'll see the tasks that are being worked on. On the left side of the page, near the top, there is a link to see the map progress. Click that link to see the live map.

    Yes. Really! While the Christmas season is not yet upon us, the AARC Christmas Party will be quickly approaching. Make plans to join us on Tuesday, December 4th, 7:00pm at Buffet King in the Capital Plaza, 5451 N Interstate Hwy 35, Austin, TX 78723. Come enjoy the camaraderie, Ham of the Year award, QLF contest, and the usual frivolity. We'll have an "Ugly Sweater" Contest instead of the tabletop decoration. Family, friends, and non-members are all welcome! Raffle tickets will be available for purchase. No fees, but attendees are responsible for purchasing own meal/drinks.

    A Grand Prize is being offered!  The AARCover Editor is looking for articles to publish in the monthly newsletter. While we've had some good ones in the past, it often takes quite a bit of prodding to get articles in time for the newsletter. Sometimes it comes down to the wire to scramble and get something written in time. We are hoping you can help us out. Check out the contest details and rules on the News Page and start writing!
