October 12, 2019

     MARS ham Scott Taylor, N5NL, demonstrated amateur radio to his fellow authors, at a gathering of Writers in the Field in Mansfield. Scott’s demo was quite well-received.

Please go here for more photos and to read all the details.

President’s Corner

October 2019

   Welcome to Fall! Oh, the crisp days and cold clear nights! Yeah, me too. Oh well, buy the time of the meeting this Thursday it should be at least a little cooler.

   We note with sadness the passing of one of our members, Rex Walthers, KE5ZYK/SK. Rex was a General Class ham and a member of MARS. He had been in ill health the past few years so you may not have seen him at meetings lately. Services were this past Wednesday. Rex was active in the community supporting the Carrollton Citizens on Patrol, a volunteer at the State Fair of Texas, participated in Denton County CERT, was an USAF Veteran (Vietnam) and an all-round good guy. Rex was a young 74 when he passed. We’ll miss him.
