April 2018 RCARC Meeting and Newsletter

Click Here To Read The April 2018 RCARC Newsletter 040118

Hello Everyone!!
Spring is in the Air!!! Well maybe. The Groundhog is having one last laugh it seems with the weather, but we are close!
Last month we had SKYWARN training with Jeremy Buckles from Morristown MRX and this month I don’t know what is planned but
We will have our Monthly meeting of The Roane County Amateur Radio Club next Thursday April 12th at 7:00 pm in the Rockwood
Community Center, 710 North Chamberlain Ave. Rockwood, TN. I hope we see everyone there.

Also, don’t forget our weekly Monday Night Net every Monday at 20:00 hours on the KE4RX Repeater 147.015 (PL tone 110.9). Also I would like to try
something new. Wally K3BHY suggested a ragchew net and I think that is a good idea. I posed the question to our Facebook group last
month and got a few positive responses, so Starting this week on the 147.015 (pl 110.9) repeater we will have 2 un-official ragchew nets. Wednesday @ 20:00 hours and Sunday @ 14:00 hours. Hopefully we will have several folks show up and you can come and go as you want. No format and very informal. The first person to show up, just call out CQ for the Ragchew net. I think this will seed more activity on the repeater and get folks back into conversation instead of just checking in. Come on and give it a try. Could be fun and maybe even addictive!!

Hope to see you all on April 12th!!
