Website Maintenance

without comments

If you’re seeing this message then you’re loading our website from our new web server! There are a few small things I’m working on but everything should be working. We use WordPress software to maintain the website and our old server limited us to an older version (somewhere around version 2.1). I found it would be easier to do a clean install of the current version (4.x) and import our data.

Because of that, there is a little work to do to get everything just like it was in the past.

If you have any problems, please email me.

Cody, KI4FUV

FIELD DAY 2014

without comments

Field Day 2014 is just around the corner on June 28th and 29th! The Roane County Amateur Radio Club will be set up at Fort South West Point park located in Kingston. All are welcome to come out and visit with us, learn about the amateur radio service or get on the air (even if you don’t have you’re license)!

Set up will begin around 10:00 am on Saturday the 28th, with operating starting around 2:00pm. We’ll run from then, all through the night and into Sunday morning.

The address for the park is 1226 South Kentucky St., Kingston, TN 37763 and talk-in will be on the 147.015 MHz repeater (+, 110.9pl).

Note to members: If you can provide a laptop with a wireless networking card (preferred) or ethernet port, please bring it along! We will once again have a wireless (and wired if needed) network set up at the site for logging purposes. KI4FUV and KD4GT have a few spares but we seem to come up short some years. Anything from Windows 2000 or newer will work fine!

RCARC Club Logo Patches Now Available

without comments

Hello Everyone
The RCARC Club Logo Embroidered patches approved by the club for purchase in January are in. These are nice high quality iron on or sew on patches to put on your favorite hat or shirt / jacket. I believe they are $4 each or 3 / $10 which is the best deal. Phil KE4LSH found a great supplier that saved us some on the cost. These were expected to be more. They will be available at club meetings and other functions, or contact Phil KE4LSH for more information. He is listed to the right under “Contact”

RCARC Feb 13 meeting CANCELLED due to weather/conditions

without comments

Sorry for the late notice, but we were by the United Way office, locked up tight, no key or access, and the road conditions after dark will be at best unpredictable.  Not worth anyone having an accident or taking any risks. 73 everyone, see you on the nets or next month meeting March 13.
