Welcome to the JOHNSON COUNTY RADIO AMATEURS CLUB'S website. We are a nonprofit organization 501(c)(3) EIN 48-1071476 dedicated to the advancement of Amateur Radio. The club is involved in various public service events and many members are involved in other public service associated programs such as A.R.E .S., E.C.S. and SATERN.
Field Day for 2014 is now over. Presently we are working on pulling all the documentation for the ARRL Field Day sub-mission. Air temperatures were easy on both the equipment and people. I did hear someone ask for a jacket Sunday morning. If only the thunderstorms that stopped operations twice on Saturday could have passed further to the south or north.
Thanks to everyone that helped make Field Day a success. The list is long. Jay (WJ0X) did a great job with coordinating the event again this year. There was plenty of help with setup and tear down. The break down was accomplished in about one hour. I believe that is the fastest tear down for Field Day we have ever done. The GOTA station in the Salvation Army communication vehicle had a steady stream of operators all coached by Brian (KC0BS). The food Saturday was great thanks to Ron (W0AAU). The networking of the stations log was watched over carefully by Bill (KC4TKL). We must also thank Shawnee Mission Park personnel. They not only allowed us to operate from the Park, but made sure that the grass was cut where the phone station was located. The Park Rangers were always a welcome site.
Thanks for all those that provided the equipment for the stations. Saturday we had several people take their exam for their Amateur license. Thanks to Norma for making this happen once again this year.
The park has proved to be a great location for public exposure. We had large number of people visit the site again this year.
With Field Day behind us the next Club event is the WWI Special Event Station in September.
