Update on the Utah VHF Society 2021 Swapmeet

(Spoiler:  There won't be one this year.)

The Society Officers have had a number of discussions about how to handle the upcoming VHF Society Swap meet for 2021.

As much as we would like to hold the swap meet we feel it is in everyone’s best interest to cancel the event to a later date in 2021 or not have it at all. We know this will be a disappointment to all our members and as best as we can determine it is the first time since 1969 that we have had to cancel this event. 

We do not want to completely abandon this event, so here is what we would like to do for our members:                 

1. We will have a drawing for a wonderful collection of door prizes.  The drawing will be open to all members who have paid their dues for 2021 by 01 February 2021. The drawing will be accomplished using a random number generator. 

2. We plan to conduct a business meeting open to all members via a Conference Call where we will conduct our business and announce the prize winners. We will send out notifications concerning this call sometime during Jan or Feb 2021. 

3. We will publish our annual booklet and mail it to all members. If you want your name in the booklet, we must have your dues payment by 01 February 2021.

If your contact information has changed (callsign, address, etc.) or if you want to change how this information is listed, please inform the Utah VHF Society secretary.

Supporting the Idaho portion of the Intermountain Intertie

After much discussion the Utah VHF Society Officers have agreed to begin an initial effort to ask the Idaho hams who would like to support the Idaho portion of the Intertie System to join the Utah VHF Society. 

Any funds obtained through this effort or any donations we obtain  from Idaho hams
will be dedicated to Idaho Intertie System repeaters.  Enough funds were raised via recent efforts to address some crucial needs, such as the purchase of new batteries for the Sawtell (West Yellowstone) repeater site and upgrade and maintenance for other projects.  As more funds become available additional improvements will be made to the Idaho system.  

If you want to help with this effort you may do so through the Utah VHF Society (contact information is here).  Any funds obtained through this effort or any donations we obtain from Idaho hams will be dedicated to Idaho Intertie System repeaters.  Please mark your membership and or donations for Idaho.
