Due to the planning involved, the CIARC membership favored putting off a CIARC centered Field Day effort until 2015.
Highway Cleanup [Philip Good - KB7BVS, Lenard Crogh - W7HXU]

Class & Testing [Ray Montagne - W7CIA]
May 17th. Allan & Dee Perrins are coming to help us gain our team certification by supporting us as the VEC. Only four registrants so far.
Ray Montagne (W7CIA) will send an email out to the VEs ahead of the May 17th class & test date to provide the schedule information for the day.
UHF Radios [Larry Stokes - N7IBC]
Tim Viehweg has several Motorola Radius UHF radios may be available for donation. Ray Montagne (W7CIA) will see if the Motorola Radius GR1225 Repeater programming cable and software can be used to program a Motorola Radius mobile radio. The hand-held radio is a research project to determine what interface cable and software is required to migrate the hand-held radios to the 70cm amateur radio.
