Postal delivery of Allen County HamNews discontinued

      No Comments on Postal delivery of Allen County HamNews discontinued

Mailed, paper copies of the Allen County HamNews are no longer available as of 2020.

Previously, the Allen County Amateur Radio Technical Society (ACARTS) arranged for printing and mailing to hams who paid extra with their club dues for the service. ACARTS provided this service for members of both its own club and members of the Fort Wayne Radio Club (FWRC).

In recent years, the number of requests for paper copies dwindled to just a few. Meanwhile, printing and mailing costs rose significantly, to $35.00 per year. ACARTS therefore decided to discontinue the service as of the start of calendar year 2020.

The newsletter remains available electronically via both the ACARTS and FWRC websites.
