New Website For Fusion

For anyone interested in Fusion and the Wires-X Kansas City Room, there is a new website.
This website is for information about the Kansas City Room, its repeaters and other interesting and useful information about our local room.
Note:  If you try to access it and get a not found error or a server not found error try again later. I am hosting it on a free hosting site and the paying users get priority over us free users. As in everything else you get what you pay for.
Also it is not optimized for your iphone or android. If you view it on your phone it will appear a bit disjointed but don't worry, everything is there.

President's Corner

April 2019

No snow this April Fools Day like last year! Weather has for the most part been good for doing outside work, which includes some much needed antenna repair. We did have some heavy wet snow during the winter. Fortunately I only found one antenna that really needed attention for my equipment. I hope you fared as well.

It has been a year since we made the change to the start on the Business meeting which is now 7 PM CDT. All the comments we have received have been positive. Everyone must like getting to pizza earlier.

We have a good a jump with Field Day 2019. Same location as last year. Most of the buildings are gone, but that should allow us to really have a good set up and allow for a good separation between stations. Being your ideas to the planning meeting.

April is here and so are the Public service events. Volunteering is a very good way to meet other hams. It is a good learn exercise as well for the new HT or mobile rig as well as the nearest QT for the must have cup on coffee.

The Club provides volunteers for Ensor museum. The museum is open only on Saturday and Sunday and needs volunteer for about four hours each day. This year as last we will have a drawing for the gift certificate for those that cover a shift.

Please note: The second April meeting will not be at the Church. We are working on a location. So
listen to the repeater and check the club’s web site for info.
