The HARA Ham swap, the U.P.'s
largest swap was held in Negaunee on Feb 9th.
The hams meet at 9 A.M. in the gym. UPARRA (Upper Peninsula Amateur Repeater
Association) held a meeting to conduct its business and elect new officers.
It is with deep regret that we must fill the vacancy of our president,
Della Carver, WD8EIB who passed away from complications associated with
cancer. We extend our sympathies to Norm, N8GAU.

Noel Beardsley, K8NB was re-appointed
to fill the vacancy as Frequency Coordinator.
The next meeting of the UPARRA will be during the 2002 U.P. Hamfest.

The UPARRA is not a club, but is made up of Clubs or Trustees which support the coordinating body through membership dues. They meet at least twice each year, and more often as necessary to transact the business at hand.
