Hello! Welcome to our website. We are the Roane County Amateur Radio Club, located in beautiful Roane County, Tennessee, which is about 30 miles west of Knoxville, Tennessee.
With a new year comes RCARC New Memberships and Renewals. RCARC Memberships run January through December and are due for renewal at the first of every year. The club has insurance premiums, repeater maintenance, utilities and other expenses so membership is very important to the club. I hope each and every one of you will consider renewing or joining RCARC this year and actively participate in our meetings and events!! It takes everyone to make the club grow so let’s band together and Git Er Done!!
The Roane County Amateur Radio Club will meet on Thursday December 12th at 6:00 pm. This is our annual election of officers and Pot Luck Christmas Dinner meeting, so all RCARC members are encouraged to attend. Please bring a covered dish of a vegetable or a desert. RCARC will provide a ham. New Members and Visitors are welcome too!!
In November RCARC voted to increase our dues for 2014. It has been several years since the dues have been adjusted. The increase is from $15 / year to $20 / year so it isn’t much. Please consider using the attached application form to renew / join RCARC for 2014 and help support our club and repeater systems.
And finally, we have our election of officers for 2014. Currently all incumbents are seeking to retain their positions, but qualified candidates are encouraged to run. If you want to run for office in RCARC, just let me, or any other club officer know, or just let us know when you arrive at the meeting to be placed as a write in. Qualifications for officers is on the RCARC club website in the RCARC Bylaws document at www.ke4rx.org
