Fellow Independent Radio Club Members

It is that time again that we ask for your help and support to keep our system up and running.

We have a couple of challenges this year. Some equipment is ending its usable service life and needs replacement, The USDA Forest Service is now implementing some new and increased fees for the repeater sites. This includes the renewal of the term lease and the annual lease for both sites on Contractors point. We are looking at $10,000 to $40,000 for a bond needed to obtain the new term lease.

We would ask those that are capable to pay the supporting member dues of $45.00 or more if you can to help us meet this un expected increase, Any and all help monetary or just helping with labor at the sites is GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Please make checks out to the Independent Radio Club and mail them to: Independent Radio Club, C/O Ken Chafin, 3624 Foothill Blvd. #1, La Crescenta, CA, 91214

Please take a moment and say a small prayer of thanks for having Lowell Mostyn, KG6AJF (sk) & John Savage KC6SAD (sk) in our lives. We lost Lowell in November, 2013 and John in December, 2015.
