This year we will NOT be at the Observation Tower in Shawnee Mission Park.  The Tower will be under construction so the area will be unusable!  We have however secured another location.  We will be located at the old Hutton Farm which is located just west of the 87th Street entrance to Shawnee Mission Park.  See Map Below................. GPS Address is ==> 18800 West 87th Street, Lenexa, KS  66220

LOOK  ===>  Here is a great opportunity to learn how to opperate during a Contest:  John Rayo, KØIZ, will be doing an HF operation clinic starting at 10:00 am until 1:00 pm on Field Day Saturday (24th). John has offered to share some tips and methods that many operators have found to be useful when trying to build up contacts during Special Events and Contests.

Thank You to all members of the Johnson County RAC for accepting an important role in the function of the Ensor Park and Museum.

Your job as a volunteer is simple!  Greet people as they arrive at the museum.  If Larry Woodworth, W0HXS -Ensor Park and Museum Manager is busy giving a tour you will watch over them until Larry is available to start another tour.  The idea is to have 3 people staffing the museum (including Larry) so as to ensure the museum is not left unattended and Larry is not alone.

There is plenty of ham radio history at the museum and if things are slow you can walk around and take in that history.  You are also welcome to use the equipment in the radio room off the country kitchen!

President's Corner

May 2017

The Field Day Team headed up by Jay, WJØX, has locked in our 2017 site. This year we will be still at Shawnee Mission Park, but in the old farm area southeast of the observation tower. Access is just west of the park entrance on 87th street. The area is open, but has some trees for hanging antennas.

The program on May 26 will be a planning for Field Day. In addition to our regular assignment of duties and collection of equipment, our being at a new site requires us to develop a site plan to distribute the various stations about the site, too. Pass the word that we will also have testing on Saturday This is a good time to upgrade.

John, KØIZ, will be doing an HF operation clinic lead up to the start of Field Day Saturday. John has offered to share some tips and methods that many operators have found to be useful when trying to build up contacts during special events.

Nominations and elections for clubs officers will also occur at the May 26 meeting.
