Ensor information and website:

In 2003, the Ensor Museum became recognized as a Kansas Historical Place, and in 2004 became a National Historic Site, to everyone’s delight. At that time operating money was nearly gone. The City of Olathe came to the rescue. Since 2004, The Ensor Park and Museum has been owned and operated by The City of Olathe, cared for by the Parks and Recreation department, and staffed by volunteers.

The Auction at Ensor is Johnson County Radio Amateurs Club’s annual fund raising event.  Half of the proceeds are donated back to Ensor.  The Club feels that the Ensor Park and Museum is an important to the preservation of amateur radio and its history.  We also like to show support from the amateur radio community  to the City of Olathe for owning and operating the Museum.

President's Corner

October 2014

The public service events for 2014 are winding down. The weather for these events in September could not have been better this year. Last year the weather caused several events to be shortened or canceled altogether. I hope you had the opportunity to volunteer for at least one event. It is a good way to keep you equipment in working order.

October means it’s time for the Ensor activities and auction. The activities will start Friday evening October 24. These activities include a camp fire, pot luck dinner and movie. As midnight approaches there will be this year’s“Spirit of the Ensors” ceremony. Saturday the Auction will start around 11 am, So come out early to look the items.

Search through your ham shack for that forgotten or little-used item that needs a new, caring home. We will be more than happy to assist with your sale and at the same time help support the Club and Ensor Farm. Auction items can be on consignment or donated. Listen to the repeater for date and time of the reverse Santa for picking up items for the auction.

Skywarn Recognition Day is co-sponsored by the National Weather Service and American Radio Relay League. This year the event will start on December 5 at 6 pm CST and end on Saturday December 6 at 6 PM CDT. This event celebrates the important contributions that volunteer SKYWARN radio operators make to the National Weather Service core mission. If you would like to help with this event, please contact me. The Regional Headquarters is located near the airport, Interstate 29, exit 10. We will need volunteer operators starting at 6 pm Friday through 6pm Saturday. I will be checking with Pleasant Hill as to what assistance they will need.
