Someone is available before every regular meeting (around 7 PM) to answer questions from newer hams. We look forward to seeing some of the new hams if for no other reason than to meet you. Need help with your current handheld transceiver (HT)? Bring it in with the manual and we'll try to help you out.
Dayton Hamvention May 15 – 17
At least once in a lifetime all hams should experience Dayton. It is the single largest gathering of hams in the world. The flea market has grown from less that 200 to over 200 spaces. Anything and everything can be found there. It is not too late to make the trek.
Field Day Supplies
At the April meeting we took orders for FD shirts, hats, pins and other stuff. The shipment has arrived and will be available at the May meeting for pickup by those who ordered!
Cub Scout Cub-o-Ree
BCRC was requested to provide a ham radio demonstration for about 280 cub scouts and their parents at the Pine Tree Educational Center in Tabernacle. We are pleased to report BCRC was able to provide an HF station, a 2 meter VHF station, and a morse code demonstration. Thanks to AK2S, WA2RHJ, K2QPN and K2SQS for being able to respond, and enjoy a pleasant day with the scouts!
Last year’s event was quite educational so on June 6th we’ll do it again on the field adjacent to the Tabernacle EOC. Stan NB2S is again chairing this year’s event so if you have any questions or suggestions Stan’s the man!
Upcoming Meeting Programs
The June and July meetings programs will be all about Field Day plans and results, and the Carranza Memorial Special Event station.
