Central States VHF Society Conference

Hi All:

I am forwarding this because:

1.  This is the premiere get-together concerning VHF matters in the World.
2.  It is NOT too late to register to attend.
3.  It should be a great affair, with many VHF and satellite folks in
attendance.  From the satellite side, Robin, VE3FRH tells me that he will be
there.  Tom, W3IWI will also be present.  Rick, W2GPS will likely be there
as well.
4.  This is a family affair.  Wives and kids have a good time too.

I hope to see many of you in Mississauga (Toronto).  The phone number for
hotel registration is 905-821-1981 or toll-free at 800-422-8238.


Bill Tynan, W3XO

> Hello CSVHFS life members:
> Well I hope all of you got a good shot at the DX last evening!  In 35

> 10 minutes at up to 20 over S-9!
> Things are heating up rapidly for the 38th annual CSVHFS conference slated
> for July 22-24 at the Delta Meadowvale in Mississauga, Ontario.  While we
> have met our room guarantee, the Delta just reassured me they have plenty
> rooms still available in that time slot at the special rate of Cdn
> $115/night (about US $85).  Just quote the Central States VHF Society
> Conference when booking your room.
> Bob Morton, VE3BFM, has been very busy finalizing the technical side of
> things and we are now just about all ship-shape for the antenna range, the
> noise figure measuring and the technical presentations.  We are very
> with the original content of the program and know you will find it
> interesting and informative.  We actually had to turn away speakers as the
> dance card was full, although we have several on "standby" if needed.
> you to all who volunteered!  The ARRL just informed us the Proceedings are
> ready and will be on their way shortly - a copy is included with your
> conference registration fee.
> US residents can mail registrations as late as July 12th - Canadians
> have them mailed by the 15th of July.  If you are worried about it getting
> here in time, or you have left it later than those dates, e-mail me an
> electronic copy, or fax me a copy at 905-772-2525, and we'll get your
> registration ready and you can pay at the door.  Walk-ins are more than
> welcome, although if you are planning on attending the banquet, or have a
> spouse interested in the family program, there is a risk you will not be
> able to participate as we have to get our numbers in well before July
> Be safe- send along a registration form!
> You can find both $US and $Cdn versions of the registration form in both
> and doc form on the Central States web site at www.csvhfs.org  You can
> find out important information about hotel contact numbers, airport

> information on the technical program.
> 73 and see you in Mississauga!
