October 3rd test of IPAWS National EAS and WEA Test

George N2APB
 

The Tellico Lake Amateur Radio Club (TLARC) President Sam Howard has asked [Brent Howard] to send out information to all members and friends about the national test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) test. This test will begin  on October 3 at 2:18 pm EDT and the EAS message is planned to be sent as a text message at 2:20 pm to all US cell phones.

 

I have attached a FEMA Fact Sheet for your further reading if you are interested. The test is intended to assess the readiness to distribute an emergency message nationwide and determine if improvements are needed.

Tower Electronics at Sweetwater Hamfest on Saturday

George N2APB
 

We were informed that Tower Electronics would be at the Sweetwater Hamfest Saturday.   If you have something you need, check their website (see the link below) and call them.  Don't order it, just let them know you and Jill & Scott will put it on the truck to bring to Sweetwater on Saturday.

 

If you are thinking about something but not sure it's what you need, let them know and they will bring it so you can try it out at the hamfest.

The website is lookin' good George. Thanks for your expertise in creating it. One thing I would add is the CTCSS tone for the 442.100 repeater in the header. It is 100.0 Hz in and out.  BB

Re: Sweetwater Amateur Radio Club Tailgate Hamfest

George N2APB
 

More details from Sharon ...

Just to remind all, the hamfest is on Saturday.


From exit 62, there's a big KOA sign at the turn to Murray's Chapel.   There will be  HAMFEST signs up as well.   Hope that helps folks who've never been there know where to turn.  They'll pass the KOA on the left, then the church on a little hill on the right.   The hamfest entry is on the right across from 2 large metal buildings.

 

If anyone is coming from Sweetwater (or from the south), Murray's Chapel Road is the 1st right past the freeway overpass (before the hotel and flea market)

 

Please park in the field before getting to the area at the top of the hill where sellers are set up.   Handicapped parking is at the top  just past the pavilion and in front of the little farmhouse.

 

Coffee and donuts are at  the pavillion.

 

Talk-in is 145.25 with a 100hz tone.

73, 
Sharon

Good suggestions Juan, Changes incorporated. 
Still playing with the color scheme a bit.  (UT orange for banner and club callsign.)  Will get the officer's photo into the Members sub-page when I get to it.
Thanks.

Re: Club Website .... www.TLARC.org

George,


Nice Job so far. I pulled up the site on my PC. I will let you know how it looks on the cell web browser. The banner on the home page is nice.

Under the contesting tab on the left of the home page, put a link to www.3830scores.com and www.contestcalendar.com

You might also want to include our club call some where in the banner. It is KN4DUA. You can use the picture attached as it is what shows up on QRZ.com


Also, attached is an ARRL award for the RTTY contest we participated in. You might want to post it on the website.

Hi all,

The first version of our new website is up and on its wobbly legs now! ... www.tlarc.org

We are adding more and more content in the coming days/weeks, and hope to make this a useful service to all members, and to draw in new hams from local (and distant) areas.

The purpose is to provide easily-accessible, useful and interesting information relating to our TLARC activities and to the specific interests of all our members.

For example:
1) The "basics" are along the top menu banner:  Membership, Meeting Recaps, Photo Gallery, etc.
2) Quick Links column on the left for often-used informational links, grouped by topics of interest to club members.  My own is "Boat Anchors" and homebrewing, and I sense there are other topics of interest such as Contesting, Field Ops, QRP, ARES, and more.  Want to see a specific topic listed here?  Just let me know and we can work to get some good links representing those too!
3) The big Club News section in the middle is intended to present timely information such as the upcoming Hamfest, verious contests and club-related activities.

Anyway, there's lots more to come and I hope to work with you all to make this a useful resource for everyone on the club.

Please check it out and let us know your thoughts!

Re: Sweetwater Amateur Radio Club Tailgate Hamfest

Sharron Fritts
 

Just to clarify: The Sweetwater Hamfest is not sponsored or held by a club.  It is actually the brainchild of and run by two local Sweetwater Hams, Virgil Wyrick W4OLJ, and Norm Leggett W7IUC.  However, the Hamfest has been supported since it's first year by members of the Monroe Amateur Radio Club who have handled talk-in, parking, flyer design & production, and sign design & construction.
