Season’s greetings to all. This is just a brief year-end update on the
activities of the NYU ARC over the past 6 months. The club now has 53 members.
Our club-building efforts have slowed down a bit recently, but since the last
newsletter, we've located and added three new members. Welcome to -
Dick McClure, ex-W1LBE, ‘59E
Alan Shapiro, ex-WB2RBF, ‘64E
Scott Bernstein, KJ5EX, NYUMC faculty
You can read Dick’s and Alan’s
comments in the Alumni Notes
page of the NYU ARC museum.
NYU ARC is participating in a new interactive web site designed for college
amateur radio clubs, CollegeARC.com
The authors have an ambitious agenda to promote activity and share information
among university clubs. Click it for more information.
We now have six amateurs at the NYU Medical Center. Hopefully that will be
enough “critical mass” to get something started.
Several other NYU students and graduates visited our web page and made inquiries
about licensing and/or joining the club. However, no one has followed up yet.
Ron Litt AE5NO, ‘63A, continues
his re-birth as an amateur. He writes:
Just a little
update from Texas. Got my first homebrew antenna up. A little 2 meter vertical
dipole I built from a QST article. A stealth installation. The antenna is
inside some PVC pipe. The pipe is painted to look like a drain pipe alongside
BTW, I was
googling around the other day and found an image of my first QSL card
(attached). I got it for free. When you are 15 years old, free counts for a
lot, even though there was a lot of gender confusion as a result.
