Field Day is THIS Saturday and Sunday!!!  Come join NARA on Horns Hill.
•      Start about 9:00 am Saturday: Set up antennas and other equipment on Horns Hill.
•      2:00 pm Field Day officially starts for 24 hours.
•      5:30 pm Dinner time.  We’ll have hamburgers and hot dogs with all the fixings.  A number of people are bringing side dishes as well.  
•      After dinner we’ll have a brief ‘training’ program (worth 100 points) to give people a chance to check out their skills with Anderson Powerpole and Coax connectors.
•      Some brave folks will work throughout the night.
•      We’ll monitor the 146.88 repeater.
•      Operations will stop no later than 2:00 pm Sunday.  
Keep a watch for developing weather conditions for the weekend.  Current predictions for Saturday are for “Chance of showers (30%) and thunderstorms.  Partly sunny, with a high near 81.”  Saturday night similar, but with chance of showers at 50%, and Sunday the same, with chance of showers at 40% and a high of 83.  Not ideal, but we’ll see how it goes.  
See you on the Hill or on the air.

NARA has been granted its 501 (c) (3) status by the IRS!

Hi Folks,

I'm delighted to relay the information that NARA has been granted its
501 (c) (3) status by the IRS!

I'm attaching excerpts from the letter we received yesterday and I'll
bring along a copy of the full letter to the next NARA meeting.  Please
note that the effective date of exemption began on July 12, 2016, and
the application was approved on September 23, 2016.  Any contributions
made to NARA since July 12 definitely can be considered tax deductible
on your income tax return.

I can't begin to express adequately our appreciation for all that Fred
NL7CF has done to get us to this point.  He has been very helpful from
the beginning in outlining the benefits and obligations of this
classification, which led to the membership approving going ahead with
the application.  He took care of the changes needed at the state level,
as well as the IRS application and responses to their requests for
additional information.  Many thanks to you Fred for all this support of
NARA and local hams.

Fred reminds us that this IRS approval does not require NARA to change
any of its activities or do anything substantially different from the
way we've done things in the past.   He does note that NARA cannot
engage in any self-dealing, political, or lobbying activity -- which we
have never done anyway.
