WVCARC Logo Contest

We are looking for a new logo.  The current logo is OK, but doesn't work very well for being put on apparel.  So, we are going to hold a Logo Contest.  The contest will run until November 1st.  The logo needs to meet the following requirements

  • Images used must be copyright free
  • Must look good when in color, grey scale, and black and white.  You may submit version of the logo for each each print type.
  • Must be able to be embroidered onto clothing.  Basically really thing lines and small type don't work well.
  • Should have Armature Radio and West Valley elements to it.
Please submit your logo to

After the deadline WVCARC officers will evaluate the submitted logos and will choose the winner.  The person whose logo is chosen will receive a WVCARC jacket.

If you have any questions regarding the contest or would like something clarified please email us at the above address.

Good Luck!

Station 75 up and running

Saturday a few of our members met and finished setting up Fire Station 75's radios.  This puts us at a halfway mark on this project.  Stations 73, 74, and 75 are ready to go. 71 and 72 are still under construction and 76 is in the planning stages.  Special thanks to all those that have worked on these projects.  In the upcoming months we are planning an activity where we activate all available stations to very everything is working a designed.

Saturday - Firestation 75

For those that are interested I am going to be at Station 75 Saturday at 9:00 AM to finish up the wiring job we started last year.  We need to extend the coax from where the radios were original kept to a new room.  Most of it will be above the drop ceiling, however a portion of the run will be going over hard-top, so that will prove interesting.  If you have an 8 ft. ladder it would be helpful.
