Next Club Meeting, open to the public, 

Wednesday July 1, 2015 

Location: NOAA Juneau Weather Forecast Station at 8500 Mendenhall Loop Road
                                                                                Our JARC portable antenna  (ARRL Sweepstakes Contest 2011)
Three brothers ages 92, 94, and 96 live in a house together. One night the 96 year old draws a bath. He puts his foot in and pauses. He yells down the stairs and says 
"Was I getting in or out?"
The 94 year old yells back "I don't know. I'll come up and see." He starts up the stairs and pauses. Then he yells, "Was I going up the stairs or down?"
The 92 year old HAM is sitting in front of his HF rig and listening to his brothers. He shakes his head, picks up the mic and says "I sure hope I never get that forgetful." 
He knocks on wood for good measure. He then yells into the mic,"I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see.... who's at the door. "OVER"

Two elderly hams had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures on the ham bands. Lately, their activities have been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards. One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at me.....I know, we've been friends for a long time.....but I just can't think of your name and your call.! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember them. Please tell me what they are." 
His friend glared at him. For at least three minutes he just stared and glared at the gray haired old man.. 
Finally he said,"How soon do you need to know?

JARC Plans to Activate Pleasant Island (NA-161) for 2015 IOTA
Contest: The Juneau Amateur Radio Club is planning to participate in the
2015 Islands on the Air Contest, which runs from Saturday 25 July 1200
UTC to Sunday 26 July 1200 UTC. IOTA is an international contest
sponsored by the Radio Society of Great Britain, “an amateur radio award programme, encouraging
radio amateurs to contact the world’s islands.” Although the contest is over on 26 July, IOTA contacts
made any time count toward individual lifetime awards. For those of you who are interested in participating from Pleasant Island during the IOTA Contest July 25-26, 2015 the ferry schedule has all of a sudden become more accommodating. There are now ferries to Gustavus on July 22 and 24 and from Gustavus to Juneau on July 27, 30 and August 1.
