Meetings are at: James P. Capitan Center, Lower Level; 149 E. Corunna Ave.; Corunna, MI 48817. VE testing and club meetings are generally in the same room. This is a 'secured' buiilding and takes card access. Members will check the east entrance door about every five (5) minutes starting about 15 minutes ahead of 'stated time' and continue for ten minutes after start time on meeting nights. Wait a few minutes during that period and we should show a face at the door.
The ARES and Skywarn Groups for the area (usually) meet at 6:00 PM on some SARA club nights. See the "SARA Notices" on left side of the home page for scheduling details. Also we use the SARA Google group email system for updating details for these meetings with notices to all group members.
All new and prospective hams, as well as the general public, are always invited to our meetings! Shiawassee Amateur Radio Association's [SARA] meetings are held monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM, except the month of December. The December meeting is replaced by a dinner event (with spouses/guests attending). It is usually held at a local restaurant decided just before the event.
Regular club dates are as follows:
|January 8||July 9|
|February 12||August 13|
|March 12||September 10|
|April 9||October 8|
|May 14||November 12|
|June 11||December 10 ~ Christmas Dinner Special (Roma's Backdoor ??)|
Meetings start at 7:00 P.M. (local), except the December meeting. December is a "special dinner" outing with the spouses invited. Thus, December meeting has a different location and start time.
NOTE: We sometimes skip the month of July due to 'busy summer' activities, contact us to be sure.
The club radio station, W8QQQ, is still in the process of relocating to the Capitan Center. Watch for status reports as we complete the move (still working on HF, VHF&UHF done).
We activate the club station, W8QQQ, for many contests and by appointment. Contact us for arrangements if you would like to use our station.
