Good afternoon all and I hope this posting finds you well and Blessed.
Please keep a thought and Prayer for Jim Miller with the Tupelo Club as his health has presented some serious issues over the last couple of weeks and he is improving, but all help is appreciated.  

There has been a request for some type of announcement, after a question and approval at the last meeting, about membership for someone who is not able, expected to, or for some reason cannot attend the regularly scheduled club meeting on a regular basis. However, they wish to contribute to the club as a member and may be able to come to Saturday special meetings, presentations, field day, QSO party, etc.
It was agreed that this was a great idea and we want to extend to anyone that wants to join the club and participate when available, to please go to www.w5nem.org and look on the right side of the top of the page under "other pages / links" and go to the  "NEMRA MEMBERSHIP Application". Please print this and submit either by mail, to the address below (along with applicable yearly dues) or another member and we will get you on the member roll. 
Also, please forward this to anyone you feel it may apply to and PLEASE if anyone wants to be added to the email listing PLEASE reply to "nemra.Inc@gmail.com" and request to be added to the contact list for future emails.
Take care and God Bless.

October 2018 License Testing

Its that time again.
We will have a testing session so this is just a reminder that we will be testing on Saturday October 20th, 2018 (third Saturday) for new amateur radio license and upgrade existing license for radio enthusiast and current ham radio operators. We will be at the Old Fulton Grammar School located at 603 South Cummings Street, Fulton, MS. We will begin testing about 9 am and continue until about 11 am. If no one shows for testing by 9:30 we will close testing for the day. If you are prepared and interested in taking your Technician, General, or Extra test, please come on up. No fee required, please bring two forms of ID one needs to be a photo (ie, drivers license) and any CSCE's (certificates of completion) you have earned and/or a copy of your current license if applicable.
If you are testing for the Technician license, PLEASE, go to the FCC web page and apply for a FRN before you test. Here is the web page:
Bring your FRN number with you for the testing paperwork, as we would rather have this than your Social Security information.
Please contact Chuck at chuck@selectconnect.net or Bobby at w1law@yahoo.com for more information or notification that you intend to test that day.
Please go to www.laurelvec.com for more testing sessions for your area.
We look forward to seeing you there and Good Luck!!

October 2018 meeting

Our Monthly Meeting is this coming Tuesday night, Tuesday October 9th, 2018 at our meeting room located at the Old Fulton Grammar School located at 603 South Cummings Street in Fulton, MS. The entrance will be on the south side of the building, or the right side of the building if you are looking at the front doors. There is also parking in the back and is accessed from S Clifton Street.
((((We have a new air conditioner and it will be comfortable for the meeting so 'heat' will not be an excuse for not coming.))))
We will begin at the normal time of 6:45 PM and will be discussing old business, new business, etc. Also it's that time of the year to start looking into the 2019 NEMRA Club officers and a nominating committee will be designated to follow through with this. If you want to volunteer please let me know prior to the meeting.
Please, please, PLEASE, everyone try and attend the meeting. Our attendance has gone way down during the summer and we need to try and pick it back up if possible. Try and bring a friend, member or not, to the meeting and program.
The program will be on "repurposing of old computer power supplies for amateur radio use". We are going to go over how to take an old computer power supply and use it for a power supply for ham radio applications. I am going to have 2-3 power supplies and we are going to modify them at the meeting to show how easy is it to get a usable 12 volt power supply to use with mobile type VHF-UHF transceivers as a base or any other application you might find useful.
We look forward to seeing those who can make it out.
Take care and God Bless.
