Weekly net follow-up items

David Andrews
 

A big thank you to everyone for participating in tonight’s net. We had 16 sign-ins. Here are a few key takeaways from the conversation:

 

  • Juan has 8 family members with coronavirus; 2 are in ICU. Please keep Juan and his family in your thoughts and prayers. If you don’t know anyone affected by this pandemic yet, you probably will fairly soon.
  • We have net control station operators set up for the next few weeks. Interested in giving it a go? It’s a great way to practice your communicating skills, and the pay and benefits are top shelf. Email me if interested.
  • If you haven’t signed up for a Zoom account yet, you should probably add it near the top of your honey-do list. We’re going to use it again real soon. Stay tuned.
  • Our beloved webmaster’s daughter is on the front line of the coronavirus war in the Baltimore Maryland area. She and her coworkers need some basic supplies to maintain their safety. If you have ANY extra supplies such as Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer, and the like, please contact George; he will pick it up and ship it off in one of his regular supply packages. When my son was in Afghanistan, my family, my siblings families, our local community and our volunteer fire department sent large weekly packages to his unit with all the items they needed and couldn’t source locally. It meant everything to them. Well folks, Baltimore is our Helmand Province and now is the time to step up. Need I say more?

 

Look around, count your blessings, and have a good night.

Hope to hear you,

For those who aren't sure about the recommendation for social distancing, here's a method that hams can remember. 😉

Now is a good time to get on-the-air to perfect your operating skills. Here is an activity that is fun and easy to get involved in. You do not need a member number to participate, read the rules for what to use instead of a member number. Hope to catch you on the air!!

Mobile Operation: An Experiment by Juan AC6ZM

George N2APB
 

Juan AC6ZM reports that he recently tried operating "on the road" mobile on a trip driving from TN to OH.  He says "results were great and much better than expected" ... Read all about it on our website at www.tlarc.org.  

// Perhaps we can have Juan go through this with us next Wednesday 7pm at our weekly TLARC Zoom meeting?!

Sevierville Hamfest deals

 

Fellow Club members,

I received this in my news feed on Facebook. I thought I would share this with all of you. Even though the Hamfest isn't being held, we can still get some good deals on equipment and parts, plus support our fellow Amateur Radio dealers.

The post read as follows:

"Reminder that the dealers who where going to be at the Hamfest Saturday are going to be giving specials from this Saturday to next Saturday !!  You can go to seviercountyars.com on the main page to get their contact information, with the COVID-19 restrictions and speaking to several dealers Hamfest probably won't start back till the middle of July of this year.. TN has had 784 cases so far and 3 deaths, Stay home !!"

Stay well and safe during this time. And remember, stay "radio-active".

Best regards,
Mike
K4MJF
