#1.  At the February 2014 General Session OVARC meeting the forming of a DSTAR Special Interest group within our club was proposed.  This group would be formed to support the addition of DSTAR to the OVARC repeater network.  Our OVARC President is looking to be contacted by club members who are seriously interested in being part of this group, with the expectations that there will be enough people to warrant moving forward with the proposal.  Those members interested in forming the DSTAR Special Interest group need to contact Bob by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

#2.  At this month's regular OVARC Board Meeting held on March 1, the group voted to continue using Group Spaces for managing our club membership information and getting messages out to the club.  Continuing to use Group Spaces will avoid having to institute yet another club email system and add to the confusion of multiple electronic messaging systems.

#3.  Also at the March 1 OVARC Board Meeting the board voted to approve the new OVARC By-Laws revision as previously mentioned.  Having been approved by the Board of Directors, the revised By-Laws will now be posted on the club website for review by the general membership.  Voting on the revised By-Laws by the general membership will take place after any questions or comments regarding the changes have been sent to the OVARC president and reviewed.  The membership voting will take place during a regularly scheduled general session meeting.  Members wishing to comment on the revisions should do so in writing directly to Bob at  This email address is being protected from spambots.
