All SLAARC Club Members,

Due to the current Coronavirus situation, there will be NO Saturday Morning Breakfast at Lil’ Chef in Brighton for the foreseeable future. I have contacted the Lil’ Chef and notified them that we would not be attending for now, and that I will notify them when we will resume our Saturday Morning Breakfasts.

Steve, N8AR will be posting a notice of this decision on the Repeater for everyone to hear as well.

Everyone keep safe and healthy during this time.

SLAARC President

The Salem-South Lyon District Library (SSLDL) has been elected to move forward to the next step for an ARISS contact. The club’s next step is to define the equipment plan for a Telebridge and generate technical events surrounding the event. The event will occur the week of June 29th, 2020. More information is found on the ARISS website:

Keep an eye, or ear, out for more information to come.

Dan KB6NU will be teaching a General class here in Ann Arbor starting on Saturday, January 11, 2020, and would like to invite SLAARC members to attend. The class will run for eight to ten weeks, depending on how fast they can get through the material.

It’s going to be held at the All Hands Active (AHA) makerspace on 225 E Liberty in downtown Ann Arbor. It’s in the basement below the Afternoon Delight restaurant. The classes will start at 10 am and end at noon.

They will be using the KB6NU study guide, which will be available for only $10. In addition, Dan is asking for a donation of $25 to pass on to AHA for letting the group use their classroom.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Dan KB6NU
