On Sunday October 30, 2011 a crew went to the repeater site to perform some needed tower maintenance. Some loose feedline was secured for the winter and plans were made for moving the 220 antenna higher on the tower.
Thanks to Tom N6MQG and Mike KC0LBY for being the tower monkeys!
Photos of the event are available in the K6ARP.org Gallery.
2011 Clovis Amateur Radio and Electronics Swapmeet
The 2011 Clovis Swap was well attended by valley hams. The rain from the previous night did seem to keep some sellers away but there were plenty of deals to be had. There was also plenty of ragchew sessions across the parking lot while the deals were happening.
Thank you everyone who attended the event. Hope to see you all next year.

Clovis Amateur Radio and Electronics Swapmeet for 2011
CARP’s big fundraising event is the Phantom Fireworks Stand. Funds raised support the club by paying for insurance, room rental, repeater maintenance, site rental, meeting supplies, parties, contest excursions, etc. Please help support YOUR club by volunteering to work some time at the stand. If you are not able to volunteer, at least support the club by purchasing your fireworks from us!
The Fireworks stand is located on Herndon just east of Clovis Avenue on in the dirt lot on the north side of the street between McDonalds and Carl’s Jr.
