So, what is happing at the CARC these days? You would be surprised!
First of all, I want to remind you that we have a club meeting coming up on Tuesday evening, September 27th:
As usual, we will gather at the Salvation Army at 7:00 PM. This month we have a great program being presented by Jack, KB8RJ, and his wife Christina who have gone on two DXpeditions to Montserrat. They have a very interesting slide program to show us. You may recall that Montserrat has a history for having disasters such as volcano eruptions, and hurricanes.
I’ve never been on a DXpediotion, but I have contacted a whole lot of them over the years. It will be interesting to see what it is like operating from a remote location.
Also, we will have an update on some of the operating events that the club participated in this summer.
Do you know who found the fox at this years fox hunt? We’ll also fill you in on our participation at the Cherry Capitol Airport FEMA exercise. How about pictures of us putting the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore on the air this month. Might I add that we did this during a monsoon! Wow, what an event! We also participated in the Paddle Antrim kayak event in Antrim County. Oops, I almost forgot that we set up a booth at the Prepare Fair this month with lots of folks interested in ham radio.
In addition to Jack’s and Christina’s presentation we will have a short video of the intrepid crew operating on top of the dunes. Yes, we really were that wet
So, as you can see we have been very busy operating various events. I hope you had a chance to participate in some of these events. These are the activities that keeps the hobby fun and sharpens our operating skills.
I hope to see you at this months meeting. Summer is over so let’s get back in the ham radio groove again!
