Frequency Coordinator Update

As of today, Dave Karr KA9FUR will no longer be the Frequency Coordinator for the Wisconsin Association of Repeaters.  This is part of an overall plan to move the responsibilities to a committee and the board rather than one individual.

Dave has been with WAR for many years, and was instrumental to its success.  He dedicated many hours as a volunteer doing research and antenna modeling, and allowed us to borrow from his expertise and wisdom that, simply put, made this organization better.  He actually designed the software for frequency coordinators that is still used in many states around the country.

He will be sorely missed, but we all wish him every success in his future ventures.

Thank you to all that were able to attend the Membership meeting in Eau Claire, WI. It was very nice to see everyone and discuss what the Board of Directors has been working on over the last 6 months, as well as what we’re planning for the future.
