I’m running ahead for a change with the newsletter. I want to remind everyone that our next Roane County Amateur Radio Club Meeting is Februaryy 13th, 2020 at The Rockwood Community Center, 710 North Chamberlain Ave. Rockwood, TN. 37854 at 7:00 PM. Lee has arranged for Dave Karasko, a TVA Engineer with line interference for this area ! He will be talking about how they search, find, and prepare to reduce or fix that problem. Along with him will be Heath Lewis of HUB. Try to make it to this one if you can. It should be good and relevent to all Hams since power line noise is common to all of us.
Most folks have already renewed, but we are still accepting memberships and renewals for 2020 for Roane County Amateur Radio Club. Help Support our club by joining and participating if you can!
On March 12th, 2020, at our RCARC Meeting will be the Annual Skywarn Training & Refresher the club sponsors. Jeremy Buckles from NWS Morristown will be the presenter and we always have a great turnout for this one. Training begins @ 7:00 PM and lasts about 2 hours.
