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.
BCRC Picnic - DATE CHANGED!
Many of our members are unavoidably committed on the earlier date (Sept 26) and could not attend the picnic. Lance KC2MTO and Linda have graciously agreed to Oct. 10th as an alternate date for the picnic, from 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM in their backyard. This will be before the October regular meeting (Oct. 12th). More details will be available at the September 14th regular meeting.
This year’s Skeeter hunt took place Sunday, August 9th starting at noon. We reserved a pavilion at Pennington Park on Creek Road in Delran. We made some CW QSOs – no SSB activity at all! We used K2TD as our call and Matt (for W2MAT) as our name in the exchange. We tried, and actually ended up placing 13th overall, and number 1 multi in NJ! All in all, quite an enjoyable afternoon.
Tentatively set for Wednesday evenings at 1930 local for one hour, the CW class is conditional on at least 5 participants committing to the class. If you are interested, can make the committment and want to sign up then check out the newsletter for those details.
New Jersey QSO Party
The New Jersey QSO Party is set for September 19 and 20th. BCRC will be sponsoring it again this year. Please consider getting on and operating at least for a short time. You can find details for the NJQP at the website.
