President's Message

Hello Everyone,

Wow, where has the time gone?  Here it is October already, and fall is here. My garden is all in, and my fall mums are in full bloom,  sure hope we don't get a heavy frost to kill them too soon.

I have been trying to check into the CLARA net on Tuesdays, and I am having a terrible time. Band conditions are making it near impossible for me to hear net control.  At first I thought it was just a connection problem, so I sent my OM up to the roof, and nope it is not that.  So we are guessing that it is just conditions.  I hope with the cooler weather that things start to improve.  Now that my main relay has moved, I keep hoping that one of the other girls in B.C. would be checking in and then she could relay me in.  Oh well, will just keep trying, so keep your fingers crossed.

The quilt squares are starting to come in, and they are just beautiful.  Oh I can hardly wait to see the finished quilt.  I salute all these girls that do quilting, that is one thing I don't think I want to get into-I really do have lots of crocheting and embroidery to do.  please remember girls that I need them no later than April 1st in order to get them to Margaret AE7MB who is going to put it together for us. I was asked by one of our members where do I want the names & call-signs put, well, anywhere is fine, and then I was thinking that maybe around the stem would also be awesome. It really doesn’t matter, just so long as we have squares to make a wonderful quilt. Still debating on putting my name in for the draw.

Lastly, CLARA will be having a certificate for our 50th Birthday Bash.  It will be for contacts during the year if I am not mistaken. Have not worked all the kinks out of it yet, but again the rules and picture of the certificate will be on the website no later than January.  Linda VE9GLF is designing the certificate, and once we have it, we will have the rules as well.  It is going to be a Great Party year.  So stay tuned for all the upcoming news.

The registration form will be up on the website and will be in the CLARION starting in January 2017.  

Please go to the CLARA's 50th Birthday Bash Page, for pictures of the new logo, badge and apron.

Please don't forget that the CLARA nets.  We look forward to hearing you on the bands.

Please don't forget to check out CLARA's Facebook page, and our BLOG on this website.

That's all for now folks, take care, be safe, and have fun on the bands.  Prayers for those who want them, need them and anyone else who doesn't mind a prayer or two.

33, 73, & 88 as the case may be



At times we have had a lot of QRM on our 20M CLARA Net, which runs Tuesdays at 1700.  So if you can't find us on 14.120, please turn your dial to 14.123.  I am sure you will hear us as you get closer.  


It has come to our attention that many folks who need to send in a change of address or articles to share and don't know where to send it. So please go to the Contact Us page, and you will find your area reps along with their email address. Please forgive us for this oversight, Also, under QSL & Contests, please find our Net Frequencies and time. Note that all our CLARA nets run from September to the end of May.
