Repeater Trustee and Emergency Coordinator Changes:

After many years as the Emergency Coordinator of our club, Duane Hart (WD8BVV) is giving it a rest. Duane has tirelessly been involved in emergency operations along with his coordinating of special events in our area that need radio communications, e.g., Mohican 100 mile run, GOBA bicycle events, etc.

Mark Welty (N8MFS) has moved out of the county and therefore cannot continue as our Repeater Trustee. Thanks to Mark for his many years of work maintaining the repeater.

Assuming both the Emergency Coordinator and Repeater Trustee duties will be Mike Brugger (N8CEY).
