Repeater Supporters Needed

If you use the Boonville repeater, please help support the repeater. Actual club membership is very small, but the repeater covers a wide area and there are many users. We would like to keep the repeater up and running reliably for regular and emergency use but we need the financial support of all users to do so. Your voluntary repeater dues will help to keep this north country communications resource available to all. We really need your support. You can send a check to the club treasurer or donate on line using a credit card or Paypal.

If you join ARRL or renew your membership, be sure to specify that you are a member of the Boonville ARC. The club receives a $15 commission on new ARRL memberships and $2 for renewals.
