Launching D.A.R.K. Magazine!

One of the things I am often called is “Overachiever” and I try my best to stand up to that title!  I love to create things I believe people will like and find interesting or entertaining.  When the idea for the publication came to me as we were forming D.A.R.K. back in April 2018, it was going to start out as a monthly newsletter.  It quickly grew into a full-blown magazine as I asked other hams in the club to get involved and contribute ideas!

I would like to thank Kelly Stanfield for writing her editorial this month.  Kelly has had a whirlwind of an adventure this year and wanted a platform to thank people who have helped her on her journey.  She had many more people she wanted to thank, but everyone wouldn’t fit in one article!  I am sure she will be writing more in the future!

I would also like to thank Renee Cason.  My daughter serves as my editor-in-chief for all things internet-related!  She also serves as the official photographer for D.A.R.K. and other groups!  You will see her all over the place while managing the Foxtrot’s Little Hams part of our club.

I would like to thank the Warrensburg Area Amateur Radio Club, Inc. and Sedalia-Pettis Amateur Radio Klub for allowing us to participate in ARRL Field Day in June of this year!  It was a fantastic experience and I look forward to working with these two great clubs in the future!

Finally, I would like to thank the affiliates we have made while working as the BC ARES.  It is my hope that these affiliates will welcome us as D.A.R.K., also!

Without further ado, click here to check out the new D.A.R.K. Magazine!
