The January 2011 issue of the Acadiana Amateur Radio Association, Inc.

fine job as the new editor.  The LARC (past and present issues in Adobe 
.PDF format) can be found at:

*Programming Notes*
by Archie Hill W5AG, AARA Vice President

The December QST gave the results from the June 2010 Field Day.  In 
looking over the results I notice W3AO, MDC Section, won the overall 
competition with 33,452 points.  I gave a short presentation at our 
August meeting using MS Powerpoint prepared by this group. The best 
finish for a Delta Division club (24th nationally) was posted by K5UZ, 
Batesville, AR, with 12,648 points.  This club finished first in the 
Delta Division. Additional places within the Division include:
#5 W5ZR, 9,278 pts., St. Martinville
#8 K5SL, 7,386 pts., Shreveport
#9 W5EA, 7,262 pts., Monroe
#15 K5ARC, 5,064 pts., Ascension ARC
#27 W5RD, 3,480 pts., Minden
#29 W5BII, 3,004 pts., SW LA Am Rptr Club
#40 W5DDL 2,128 pts., Acadiana ARA

What would be a reasonable goal for Acadiana ARA for 2011? If we are 
able to double our score from 2010 perhaps we could make the top 25 list 
for the division.  We operated 1A in 2010. Perhaps with some planning 
(another antenna tower? Moving from 2 to 4 competent CW ops? We could 
attain this goal.  I am willing to work on the antennas but will be 
unable to be overall Field Day Chairman due to a schedule conflict.  I 
hope a motivated person will step up to volunteer for this important 
club leadership position.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those club members 
who made a presentation during our 2010 meeting schedule, including: 
Nick Pugh K5QXJ (May and November), Larry LeBlanc KE5KJD (June), Fred 
Marshall W5MLE (July), and Jim Bookter N5NVP (September).
