2015 Roane County Amateur Radio Club Almanac

without comments

The RCARC Almanac is back from the printers and was distributed tonight at the Christmas dinner. Phil, KE4LSH, has provided a PDF copy of the almanac that can be viewed online or downloaded.

Please note that the pages are “out of order” as this is the same file that was used to print the almanacs.

Download the PDF.

2015 Officers & Christmas Dinner Recap

without comments

I thought we had a very good meeting and Christmas Dinner tonight at RCARC!! Lots of good food and drink and fellowship! Met a couple new folks and had a few former members come. Cliff gave a very good presentation on the DSTAR repeater going up at Roosevelt. I think it motivated some folks to go out and buy one.

Officers for 2015 are:

Cliff Segar KD4GT – President
Harry Tirrell KB4AA – Vice President
Ed Smith K5QPO – Secretary
Jim White K4APY – Treasurer.

There was no opponent in the race so the election was by acclamation.

Sterling Edmonds N4VAV got a certificate of appreciation for his efforts helping with the annual Field Day event and securing a sizeable donation that financially benefitted the club this year.

Norm Burns KK4YEU was not present but was to be presented a certificate of appreciation for his lions share of sales of the RCARC Almanac Ads. Lee Grace offered to take Norms certificate to him.

Phil Newman KE4LSH and Anna Hayes KE4VJM both received certificates of appreciation for their excellent job with RCARC Fundraising projects.

Greg Wallace brought his “go box” and I must say the box he used was very nice. He said he bought it at LUV’s Truck Stop and I was impressed by the size and what could be fit inside. Good Job Greg!!

We still have a few folks needing to pickup and pay for their Ham Tag and RCARC Memberships renewals are being accepted now for 2015.

Send a Request to be added to the RCARC E-mail List

without comments

Hey Y’all
Seems some of the ISP’s have decided to flag me as a Spammer for sending out my group e-mails, so if you want to remain on the RCARC e-mail list for the newsletter send me an e-mail with the subject “Subscribe” to my k4apy#@k4apy.com e-mail address (Remove the # before sending). I’m going to have to set it up a little different to be in compliance with the Can-Spam act of 2003 it seems. Thanks!!

Website Maintenance

without comments

If you’re seeing this message then you’re loading our website from our new web server! There are a few small things I’m working on but everything should be working. We use WordPress software to maintain the website and our old server limited us to an older version (somewhere around version 2.1). I found it would be easier to do a clean install of the current version (4.x) and import our data.

Because of that, there is a little work to do to get everything just like it was in the past.

If you have any problems, please email me.

Cody, KI4FUV
