Hello and welcome to our new VTARA members,
Hope everyone enjoyed the day off. I wanted to give some reminders as well as some general info to those we have picked up from Gobblerfest this past Saturday.
If you haven't already, join as an official member on our Gobblerconnect page: [ https://gobblerconnect.vt.edu/organization/vtara ]( https://gobblerconnect.vt.edu/organization/vtara )
Meeting on Thursday Sep 09, 6pm-7pm in Squires Room 234
Pay your dues at the meeting or arrange via Venmo if you want shack/equipment access, ability to vote, and to help us with providing food/drink during events/contests. This also helps pay for tower/antenna maintenance that we are legally unable to do ourselves.
Join the Facebook Group (Type: K4KDJ) and Facebook VTARA General Group Chat. We post pictures and some news there.
Best resources for getting your license:
