Hot stuff here!

At the June meeting we will but finalizing the Field Day schedule, so be there at the meeting if you can. At the May meeting our president made a request to all present to let him know if and what time you can help set up/tear down or work the radio. Glenn sent out the email below.

Hey, LOARC’ers,

Please send an email to Larry Cicchinelli, (k3ptoo@nullgmail.com) our Club president with your Field Day preferences as to Set Up, Operating and Tear Down.  The dates are June 23rd and 24th

Let him know what days and times you can be available and whether you want to be an operator or logger.

We really need people to help tear down.  At the club meeting last Wednesday, many hands went up as to coming to help set up.   It isn’t as much fun as setting up, but in the past, we have fewer tear down people than set up people.  Please don’t let this happen this year.

Thanks,
Glenn

Mark your calendars for the emergency drill at 10:00 a.m. and club meeting on June 13, 2018.  Remember, we will be using the 146.955 repeater that needs a code.

Had a Problem

Wow, Guess by now most know that the hosting site that we use had a MAJOR system crash a couple of days ago.  Scott (KB8KGU) contacted me about it and a couple of hours later he contacted me agin informing  me that the hosting site was back up and using a backup version of data. I SENT OUT TWO emails informing all club members and ask for members to CHECK the site and if they found any wrong, bad, or outdated information to sent me an email and I’d fix it. Well guess I missed a couple of items! Anyway I have revisited the website and I think I have made all the changes to include some individual’s info. AGAIN, if you see something send me an email to the above address and I (once I verify it) will fix it.

Okay, I have updated the Eat’n Meet’n and added the March 2018 Minutes.

Don’t forget that the Emergency Net will be on 146.955 (PL 192.8) at 10 AM on the 11th of April. The monthly meeting is also on the 11th at 7 PM.

More good news

Just got back from Cincinnati, Glenn sent me the next Eat’n Meet’n so its been posted.

Recently Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) held an Intro to Emergency Communication class (ARRL EC-001) in Columbia. Two of our members attended this class, Ernest Venis (W0LTC) and Jerry Parmer (KE0OTM). See if you can find them in the picture to the right (hint: look for a red circle, lol). A score of 80% was needed to pass the test, that 28 out of 35 questions must be correct, wow that’s two more than needed to get a Technician or General license! GREAT JOB GUYS!!!  Say I have an idea (no it didn’t hurt, Glenn) why don’t you schedule a class for the club and share some of your newly obtained knowledge?
