Thank you to all the members who braved the weather last night to attend the first SFARC General Membership meeting of 2023.  And thank you to these same members who brought generous food donations for the Crossroads Church. Great job! This is a wonderful way to pay back the Church for its generous use of its facilities and support the community we live in.  And thank you to those that could not make it in person but attended via the club Zoom Room.

And a huge thank you to our presenters last night, Doug, W2VX, and Dennis, WU6X, for keeping us informed and educated.  And a special thanks to Brian, AI6US, for taking on the late Barbara Walters role of interviewing Doug. Very much appreciated by all.

What about next month? Same time, same location, new date; February 10, Crossroads Church Gymnasium, 7:30 PM, 1101 Auburn Ravine Road, Auburn CA.  Please remember to use the Dairy Road entrance and parking lot adjacent to the Gym.

Next month’s presentations?  Don, WB6LPG, will be presenting how to build an inexpensive Node using a common micro-computer and a modified Baofeng, HT.  Cool! Thank you, Don.  And Greg, KO6TH, has arranged for another mystery “show us your shack” from one of our fellow club members. Thank you, Greg.

Got ideas for future club presentations? Have topic you would love to share?  Please contact me and let me know.

Be safe, enjoy and 73.


Looking Forward

Hope everyone’s New Year is off to a great and safe start.  A quick reminder that this Friday, January 13, SFARC will be having its first club meeting of 2023.  Meetings are held at the Crossroads Church Gymnasium, 1101 Auburn Ravine Road, Auburn CA.  Please use the Dairy Road entrance and parking lot adjacent to the Gym.  If you cannot attend in person, then please join us through the SFARC club’s Zoom Room. Access to the Zoom Room is through this website and is straight forward and easy.

Two great presentations this Friday.  Brian, AI6US, will be conducting an interview with Doug, W2VX, highlighting the changes and improvements made to the W6EK repeater in 2023.  And these changes and improvements were needed, significant and most interesting.  Then Dennis, WU6X, will be presenting an overview of a new HF forecasting and management tool for the Amateur.   Thanks in advance to our presenters.   We also have exciting presentations scheduled for February and March…more on that in a few days.

A request: If you are attending this Friday’s club meeting in person, please do not forget to bring a generous food donation for the church who generously supports our club in so many ways.

See you Friday and 73!
