JCRAC

Welcome to 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.

April 2014

March came in like a lion for sure.  But with the windy conditions the last days of March, I'm not sure I would say it went out like a lamb.  April and May are the months for severe weather in our area.  It is important to keep the family safe so be sure to have a plan and check items such as batteries etc.  I keep an old pair of shoes in my basement which also serves as my shelter.  You need something on your feet to walk through debris.

The “Ham 101” clinic for newly licensed hams, organized by Herb, NZ0F, was well attended.  The support for new Amateur Radio operators across the Kansas City Metro area by the numerous clubs is great to observe.  The Amateur Radio community in the Kansas City area is very active and supportive.
The new controller for the 443.725 repeater has been received and Tom, N0GSG will be doing the programming.  Once the programming is complete Bill, WA0CBW, and I am sure others, will schedule a date to install the controller.  Weather should not be an issue as the repeater is housed indoors unlike the 2 Meter one.
The season for Public service events is here.  Larry's list has already listed many events to volunteer for.  There are several events hosted by the Shawnee Mission Parks and Rec.  The Park really goes out of its way for our Field Day activities and deserves our support in return.  Please look over the following dates and let Mike Bellinger know which one you can volunteer for.
