Club Archives

I picked up the club archives from Mike Ishler yesterday.  There is some good info in there, like what we paid for the repeaters and duplexers, antennas, equipment, etc.  Old logbooks, awards, QSL cards, and various paperwork.

The most interesting find were old club newsletters and meeting minutes.  These are by no means complete, but is still a good amount.  I have to thanks all the previous club secretary’s and other officers who kept these records.  Newsletters pretty much stopped in the late 1990’s, with a couple of exceptions.  Much club business and discussions took place via email, and eventually club news via website.  The old websites are pretty much lost, though I think I’ve saved most photos, and some club meeting minutes are somewhere in the xarc@yahoogroups archives.

I hope to be able to scan our old newsletters at some point.  The 1981 ones are on the History page.  I hope to be able to add some other info from the archives as well.

For the time being, I’ve volunteered to be the home for the archives.  Until I can’t.
