  Our check in list was sent to the Emergency Management Dept.. 

Mike and Key Club Ham Fest June 4th.!!!

 Plans continue to be grafted into a working model for the “swap”. Diagrams, sketches and numbers are put into Excel sheets and Google maps to lay out a flow of traffic.

 A lot of things to consider--  table layout, food, parking, setting up and taking down etc…                              The biggest factor -the people resource. Not the customers – but the volunteers to make this happen. If all those that raised their hand and voted for this event, volunteered.. no problem…    Please plan now to volunteer for this…  A list of positions will be at the next meeting to signup .. This Thursday…

    Welcome to those that have moved to our area !

     Over the last couple of weeks, we have been receiving calls from Operators that have been moving into our area and looking at joining the local Radio Club.  They have said that they have heard good things and hope to be a part of it..  We may see them at the next meeting… 


  After the last couple of events some items have turned up missing.. If anyone knows of the whereabouts of  1. A Beofang U5r radio missing since the Club Christmas party ///  The rolls of tickets from the Club Banquet – please let a member of the Club Board know. 


Meeting this Thursday. In person or on Zoom. The Zoom information can be found on the K9EAM.ORG website. Right side column.


The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) staff has clarified in response to an ARRL request that the new $35 application fee will not apply to most license modifications, including those to upgrade an amateur radio licensee's operator class and changes to club station trustees. The FCC staff explained that the new fees will apply only to applications for a new license, renewal, rule waiver, or a new vanity call sign. As previously announced, the new fees take effect on April 19, 2022.


  The Cellcom Marathon is on again this year!! They are looking for 10 radio operators on May 15th from 6AM to 2PM.. (just need five more at this time) could be shorter depending which area you will be working with. Radios will be furnished.. You will be operating from inside a large tent with the other operators.. Each operator will be in contact with a couple of the route Med stations reporting need of medical attention… When signing up, pick on the job square and pick “Medical Communications- Amateur Radio” Here is the link to sign up..

  There is a short training a couple of days before the event and a party a week later.. see you there. Lunch and snack provided…
