We need a crew to come together this Saturday starting at 8 AM. We suffered some storm damage at the site that we need to attend to ahead of the meeting next Tuesday.
Also the 2M repeater is off air as the output is severely down, unrelated to the above. Harry has it on the bench and will report its diagnosis at the meeting.
The activities will start at 8AM Saturday and will run through the night. We will conclude operations around 1 on Sunday.
Guests are welcome to visit from Noon through 8PM on Saturday, and from 8AM till Noon on Sunday.
We plan to hold operations on Voice, CW, and digital modes. There will be attempts throughout the day to make a satellite contact as well.
We will operate a Get on the Air station for new ham operators or non licensed holders to try out an amazing experience.
Come out and watch what it takes to put a portable Amateur radio operation on the air.
A few of us thought it would be great to activate the Hopewell Furnace National Park Saturday May 14th. The idea is to arrive on site that morning setup 4-6 separate sites and operate from 11AM till 5PM.
Locations would be setup as CW, Phone and Digital running 40/10 and 20/15 meter band combinations. The max we could do is 6 locations in this configuration. This is open to all amateur radio operators in the area and we will extend invitations to the surrounding clubs to see who wishes to help activate a location on that day.
If you have questions or are interested in helping plan this excursion please reach out to SPARC via email @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
This first one is a special event as our own Dale Long will present on his efforts to re-establish the AM broadcast station on Haiti. The Meeting will be at the township building and start at 7 PM.
Hope to see you then. The next meeting will be March 29th, 2016.
