Sign-up to Volunteer at the Ensor Museum during the Month of May
****ALL volunteers that sign up will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Gift Certificate to Associated Radio. Volunteer multiple times and you will be entered multiple times.****
It's that time of year for the JCRAC to volunteer at the Ensor Park and Museum.
Your job as a volunteer is simple! Greet people as they arrive at the museum. If Ensor Park and Museum Manager is busy giving a tour you will watch over them until they are available to start another tour. The idea is to have 3 people staffing the museum so as to ensure the museum is not left unattended while tours are being given.
If you are new to the JCRAC and/or Ensor Park and Museum, No Problem. If you like you can stop by Ensor and see what's going on before you volunteer.
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!

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
Trying to take advantage of nice weather on Friday March 3rd, several club members gathered at Black and Veatch. The plan to get the new mount and cement blocks on the roof went off without a hitch. The new pad was laid on the roof and the mount was then bolted together. Now it’s time to install the new mast. The last step before moving the antenna. At this point the phrase “the best laid plans of mice and men” comes to mind. The new mast did not have the proper holes drilled in it to permit the braces to be connected. That ended the task and the crew retreated off the roof. We have reach out to get the correct mast. Once we have the corrected mast, we will look for another nice weather day to returned to the roof.
Planning for Field Day 2022 is underway. Jay (WJ0X) has heard back from the Park Department and the permit is on its way. Mark June 25 and 25 on your calendar for Field Day 2022. We will be having several planning meetings with at least one at the Hutton Farm.
