2011-Adventures in Repeater Land.
Chris Novara K7TVL was kind enough
to come over from Eugene/Springfeild,
and help get all our repeaters
optimized for the Oregon Connection.
Chris had already done work on the
Pine Mountain System last year. This
year was to finally get the Glass Butte
and Burns Butte systems optimized. So
on July 9th Mike AD7GC, Max KF7MAX,
and Bill N7RGB headed out a long
dusty, bumpy ride.

UPDATE!!! Our Glass Butte Repeater Antenna
has been fixed and all is well. Thanks Mike
AD7GC, John KE7GYB, and of course Ralph
K7TWR (the Tower Guy)

A NOTE ON HiDARG Membership Dues
We have the following changes with HiDARG dues. During the Nov 6th meeting, HiDARG members debated
and discussed raising our membership dues for 2015 to $25 dollars. After much discussion on the pros and
cons, the pros won and HiDARG officially voted to raise the membership dues for 2015 and beyond. Associate
dues stay the same.
The current dues are $20 that's only a $1.66 per month folks. At $25/year that puts it up to $2.0833 per month.
Hopefully this won't be a deal breaker for most folks...
