Davis Hospital Preparedness Fair
Monday, 20 July 2015 11:16

Davis Hospital will be hosting a Preparedness Fair on Sept 19th from 0900-1600.  They are looking for Ham Radio Operators to support this event by bringing in your equipment and showing the public how to operate in an emergency.  In the past, we set up a Packet and HF station plus demonstrated IRLP, simplex and repeaters communications.  We may be allowed to use the radio equipment in the hospital so this would be a great time to get to know where it's located.  If you are interested in supporting this worthy event, please contact me at:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

2015 Field Day comes to a close.
Sunday, 28 June 2015 19:46

Another ARRL Field Day has come and gone, and I want to thank all the volunteers that made it such a success. I wasn't able to be there as much as I wanted, but I sure enjoyed the time I was there. And a NASCAR pit crew should be proud of the speed and efficiency in which the club gear was taken down, stowed, and taken back once it was done! The contest ended at noon and by 1PM all the club gear was stowed away and all three trailers were headed down the mountain. Thanks to everyone that helped make that go so smoothly.

There were sure a lot of other people that put a lot of effort into making this happen, and I can’t even attempt to list you each by name, but I want to again thank Roy Rasband for reliably taking on this major event each year and making it go so well. He does such a good job of planning and organizing it that we often don’t realize how much work he puts into it each year. He makes it look easy.

And I’m already looking forward to next year.

Want that EXTRA class license?
Monday, 30 March 2015 19:38

If you're a General class ticket holder like me, then I want to challenge you.

I challenge you to upgrade your license!

Chuck Killian, our club's Education Chairman, has volunteered to organize a series of classes/seminars/discussions/training sessions to help people like me (General class and struggling with theory) to take the next step and join the prestigious ranks of those that hold the highest class of amateur license.

So, are you up for the challenge? Want to know more? Drop Chuck and email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and let him know. Once he gets enough "interested bodies" he'll start organizing something. Let's make this happen!

******ELMERING******
Thursday, 22 January 2015 20:14

 

We've had an influx of new hams (a great problem to have) and along with that, an increased need for knowledge! Unfortunately, we can't teach all of everything that everyone needs at our monthly club meetings. There are just too many amazing facets of this hobby for any of us to keep up on. So what do we do to support these new hams and get them started successfully?

ELMERING!

For those of you that are new, the term "Elmer" refers to someone that mentors a new (or not so new) ham in a field of particular interest or ability. So if you are a newcomer looking to learn more about a specific topic or just want to get to know a local ham, log onto this website and click on the "Elmering" link on the left side of the page under the programs heading. Send them a message and don't be afraid to ask for help!  If you are one of our listed Elmers, please check your information and let me know if anything needs added or updated. If you are not listed on the page, but have a desire to informally help one of our new hams, please drop me an email and I will gladly add you to the list. Contact me via This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

So, new hams: reach out and make connections. You get as much out of this hobby as you put into it.Don't be afraid to ask for help.

Experienced hams: even if you don't think you know very much, you probably know a lot more than some of these new guys so help them out and make yourself available to them.....and know that your efforts are appreciated.
