Members and Friends of JCRAC (updated May 2, 2022), 

The JCRAC will have Club Meeting through the 2nd Quarter of 2022.  As of the begining of May, We plan to have our first In-Person meeting on July 8th.  We have some volunteers working on setting this up as ZOOM meeting as well. 

We are open to ideas for programs and meeting topics during this period.

Bill Gery, KA2FNK --  President JCRAC


President's Corner

May 2022

Here it is May 2022, when the COVID-19 started who would have predicted that we would still be not having in  person meetings .  That will be changing as we have heard  that the  church has changed mask policy. Masks  are now optional.   The Zoom meetings have been very successful and going forward we are planning to continue that capability when we resume in person meetings.

At the present the first meeting in July is being planned for returning to the church. We have to check with the Pizza shoppe to see if they have any restrictions concerning a large group.

May is our clubs turn for volunteers at Ensor. Please sign up for one or more slots. It is only a few hours on a Saturday or Sunday. Each time you volunteer your name goes into  a drawing for a $100 gift certificate from Associate Radio.

Field Day planning is coming together thank to Jay. The Station  captains are reviewing the equipment needed for their stations.  We should have a working mesh network this year. The issues were identified  we believe the problems have been resolved.

Elections of club officers will be held at  the last meeting on May. At that meeting we will have nominations and elections.

Chip (AC0F) and Deb ( KD0RYE) Buckner have over many years been our Feedback editors.   Their efforts have  produced a great monthly newsletter for the club.  The Feedback has attracted new members to the club because of the format that they designed. Time constraints has resulted in them having to step back for being editors of the Feedback. Chip and Deb, Thank you for all your time and work on the Feedback


Bill KA2FNK, President
