President's Corner

August 2017

What an out pouring from the Ham community as word spread (very quickly I might add) of the accident I had on the way to the Warrensburg Ham fest. By the time I returned home there were several emails awaiting me. All asked if I was all right and with the offer of help. This is a real testimony to the caring and ready to assist culture that is the Amateur Radio community. There were no injuries either to myself or those in the car. Everyone was wearing seat belts and the two smallest children properly seated in car seats.

As for the Jeep, which bore full impact to the right side, there was hope at first that the damage could be corrected. I found out, however, that was not the case and the humane thing was to follow Colonel Potter (M*A*S*H) lead with the Jeep. Thanks to all that reached out to me with concern and offers of help.

The ham community was active following the storms that brought down so many trees and limbs.  Overland Park Emergency Management asked for the use the club's 29 repeater to help with the cleanup. Hams were very active using simplex to support the clear up efforts, both during and after the storms.

Mark your calendar for the annual Ensor Auction. The events will start Friday evening October 27th with the campfire and camp out. The auction will be Saturday October 28th starting at 11 am. So it is time to look through your shack and select the item that needs a new home.
