PA Child Abuse History Clearance

Fred, KA3IRJ on the net - 08/01/2015

This morning Fred KA3IRJ remarked that he had just completed his PA Child Abuse History Clearance. His reason being that in order to protect him self and their local club when doing VE tests, in case a minor applicant would attend a testing session without a parent or guardian, that they would be protected under new laws.

This is the link for the PA Department of Human Services clearance certificate site. You have to create a user account first, and then fill out the online form which you can pause and save at any point.

You must list every residence since 1975 so it is good to have this information, and every person whom you lived with since 1975. And just a personal hint, you may want to make sure your significant other is out of the room when you're filling this out. ;-)


Woody, K3YV on the net - 07/31/2015

Woody K3YV mentioned on the net that Dick AA3R Rooster number 1295 recently moved into a care facility. Dick will be celebrating his 88th birthday on August 7, and Woody thought it would be nice for those interested to send Dick a QSL. Just send your card to:

Dick Ruth - AA3R
Pines Building

Here are the monthly submissions from the lunch bunches. Reports are that there is a lot of QRM around these tables. We'll let you decide, are they lolly gagging or just having a good time? In the east they have been meeting at Brother Paul's Restaurant in Eagleville, in the central area they meet at Hoss's Family Steak & Seafood in State College, and in the west at the Iron Bridge Inn, south of Mercer, PA. We highly recommend that if you plan to attend, you checkin to the net to confirm the date, time, and location, in case of inclement weather.
