"Quote from HS0ZDX - RX via email 27.12.2011"


You are invited to the RAST New Year party on January 8, 2012 which will also serve as the first monthly meeting of the year and will be held at John (Narissara's) QTH in Vibhavadi Rangsit Soi 60. The festivities will begin at 4 p.m. and a buffet dinner and refreshments will be provided while ThaiBev has promised to sponsor two kegs of draught Beer Chang on this occasion.
 Please bring a gift-wrapped present costing not less than 500 baht that will be redistributed in a lucky draw during the evening.
 John (Narissara), HS1CHB will also be staging an "antenna party" from 10 a.m. onwards at the party venue when some HF and VHF antennas will be assembled and anyone who would like to pitch in or witness this activity is welcome to participate. At least two amateur radio stations will also be active so there will be HF, VHF and, of course, many eyeball QSOs taking place during the party.
 The event will mostly be informal, although RAST President Chaiyong Wongwuticomjon, HS1QVD will provide an update with details about many generous donations that have been received by RAST so far to help us rebuild and re-equip our HS0AC club station at the Asian Institute of Technology that was devastated by two-metre high flood water in October. Pictures at our web site: taken during a recovery mission on December 10 provide an indication of the extent of the damage to our facilities and equipment.
 I would also like to take this opportunity to announce that RAST has now registered with PayPal and can accept donations from anyone with a PayPal account who may send funds to the following email account:
 May I also thank everyone who has helped us so far by helping to fund our recovery efforts.

 Directions to the RAST party QTH:

(From central Bangkok) Drive north towards Don Mueang airport along Vibhavadi Rangsit Highway and keep to the left-hand lane as you approach Chaeng Wattana Road. Continue underneath the Chaeng Wattana overpass and take the U-turn bridge, after which you should keep to the left-hand lane as you return in the direction of Bangkok. Vibhavadi Soi 60 is just past the Royal Police Sports Club.
 Once in Vibhavadi Rangsit Soi 60, follow the soi in and continue straight at a circle/roundabout. After crossing a small intersection, HS1CHB's 5-storey white building (with an HF antenna on the roof) is on your left, The house number is 229/155. (A map is attached).
 Looking forward to seeing you at the party and, on behalf of RAST President Chaiyong and all officers of the society, may I wish everyone a very Happy New Year, may 2555 (2012) be filled with laughter (555 = Ha Ha Ha), happiness, good health and prosperity..
