January 2024 meeting

Our next club meeting will be held at 7:30 PM on January 12 at the Auburn Crossroads Church South Campus Gym. Topics for the night include Earl’s (K6GPB) presentation on crystals, and Scott’s (KM6RFB) presentation on emergency preparedness training. A live stream will be provided via Zoom for those unable to attend in person.

Extra Helping of Watts Up This Week

As we reflect back at another successful year at SFARC, may we be reminded of all the good times, laughs, and fun we’ve had as a club.

One recent highlight from 2023 was a conversation I pulled from the W6EK streaming archive between Ray (KK6AM) and a callsign he didn’t recognize AK6DU. If you know Ray, and his daughter Christina, this is worth a listen. You can practically here the light bulb go on over Ray’s head as he realized that his daughter not only got her license but went all the way from unlicensed to Extra in under 60 minutes. 🙂

The repeater audio is from December 6th, 2023 shortly after 4 PM PT and can be found on the main page of https://www.w6ek.org/ under SFARC TV.

Watts Up This Week

A MESSAGE FROM JEFF (KM6RGO):

Well, ‘Tis the season, as they say! Christmas season is my favorite time of year. We get to splurge on our families, visit with friends, and be generous to others. Generosity is a relative. Sometimes, it means giving money to something or someone, more than we would any other time of year. The giving of money is relatively easy, if you have it to give. However, generosity of time is truly something to behold.
 
Our time is the most precious thing we have. Time is finite, and time given for the benefit of others is something to behold. I am constantly impressed with the generosity of our Ham community. Our time is often given freely to others learning our expansive hobby. Our Ham community grows stronger with each connection. This holiday season, continue to do what we do best, share what we have learned, so our community can have the capacity to serve those less fortunate than us more broadly.
 
It has been an honor serving Sierra Foothills ARC as president. I truly believe your generosity towards me have been marvelous. I welcome to the new leadership team coming in next year. May they learn as much as I have.
 
Merry Christmas!
