If anyone is good at graphic design, we could really use a club logo. Something that utilizes XARC, W2XRX, etc. It could be used on the website, QSL cards, t-shirts . . . . . . . .
In the meantime, I played around with a few ideas –
Unfortunately, we aren’t fully automated, at least yet, so even if you indicate you will pay dues using PayPal, one must manually navigate to the Pay Dues page to actually perform the payment. So after you submit your membership application, go to the menu above and hover over Join XARC, then select Pay Dues or Donate.
We hope to improve this in the future.
In order to continue as a club, we need some minimum number of members, and collect modest dues to cover our costs. So it is that time of year to chip in for the upcoming year.
It also wouldn’t hurt if we picked up some new members. So if every existing member could find 2 new members to join the club, we would be in excellent shape going into the future. I know I can think of at least two people who might be enticed to join our organization. Even if all of us only got 1 new member to sign up, it would be huge. So spread the word, tell them about our website, lets see if we can at least get 20 new members.
