February brought some of the coldest air the area has experienced in an exceptionally long time. My home weather station recorded two days with a low of minus 12 degrees Fahrenheit. I hope the rolling power blackouts I hope did not impact too many of you. Without heat and air temperatures that low pipes can freeze quickly. The pipe for my water garden froze for the first time. No damage to the pump and the water started to flow again as the ice melted on the pond. It appears that the pipe was not damaged either as I am not seeing water lost.
As you know, T-Mobile has done upgrades to the 145.29 repeater site. This included a total rework on the electric power. While the work was in process our 145.29 repeater was off the air. T-Mobile called us when we could reconnect the power to the repeater. Bill (WAØCBW) and I met their crew at the site. The repeater has new power from the power distribution panel to the repeater. Bill was impressed by the professional workmanship.

Members and Friends of JCRAC (updated December 13, 2020),
It should comes as no surprise that due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the restrictions for large group meetings, the Overland Park Christian Church has informed us that the church will not be available until as a meeting place until further notice. We will evaluate the possibility of having in person meeting at the end of the 1st Quarter 2021. Thanks for your understanding. Until then we will be holding our twice monthly meetings via Zoom.
We are open to ideas for programs and meeting topics during this period.
Bill Gery, KA2FNK -- President JCRAC
