    We recently learned that Laurence Lee ("Larry") Kenan, KO6SM, died on February 15, 2017. Born in Syracuse NY in 1936, he was an early and active member of the Thunderbird Amateur Radio Club, and I believe served as president as well.


    In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to St. Vincent de Paul in his memory.

    More details are available in the Arizona Republic obituary. Larry will be missed.

    It's the biggest news we've had in a long time: we're moving! Thanks to a huge effort on the part of our president, Gary Duffield WK7B, we have confirmed a new location to hold our general meetings. We'll be having it at Northern Arizona University!

    No, we aren't moving to Flagstaff. We'll be at the NAU North Phoenix Campus (also known as the North Valley Campus), located at 15451 North 28th Avenue in Phoenix. This at the northwest corner of Greenway Road and I-17. We didn't want the quality of venue to go down in the move, and Gary found a room with perhaps even more amenities.

    Meeting times will be the same: the third Thursday of the month from 7:00 pm on.


    Come by and check it out for yourself at the next general meeting! As of today, we're in room 147 - but check the club website before the meeting just to make sure.

    Thanks to some work done by a crew of TBARC volunteers who went out to the Deer Valley hospital today, our 147.040 repeater is now linked to the White Tanks 446.150 repeater. This expands our coverage, and we hope it will help the people who are stuck behind mountains access the system.

    Thanks to all who volunteered to do the work!
