  1. It would be nice to include me (KG0HU) as the Treasurer and a not that all board members are AEC’s

    • Hey Jim, I’ve updated the page to include you. With regards to the AEC designation, I’ve done a bit of investigation and it looks like we need a board discussion about it.

  2. An Amateur Operator, Ken White, N0STO, is organizing the Boulder County Fair Parade. I agree with him that our involvement with society and lack of recognition make this a great opportunity to show off.

    Can we get the Com Van and maybe a drone and robot to have in the parade?

    I have the application in digital format to forward to a BCARES officer.
