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

September 2014

Did we have a summer? I can not recall any 100 plus days in the Kansas City area this year.  There is notability less daylight on the way to work in the mornings.
Two of the big public service events in the Kansas City area are coming up in September.
· The MS Ride
· Bikers for Babies
These are great events and fun to work.
The Ensor auction is on the horizon. Take a look at the “stuff” around your shack - when was the last time you used that item? You could turn that item in to some cash for that radio with that new feature you want, or donate it to the Club to help support the Club repeaters and activities.  Also spread the word and mark you calendar.  Ensor activities start Friday evening, October 24 with the auction on Saturday, October 25.
