Dang, I was wrong – This event is NEXT week Friday!  // ‘Closest to Friday April 1st’ … Either side!

 

[Quite a bit early in the year for me to make a mistake … must be the bug that’s going around.]

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

Sevierville Hamfest Cancelled

Jim Anderson
 

Another one bites the dust. This came from ARRL this evening. 

73, Jim - K0RGI 

-----------------------------------

GE Delta Members and Amateurs,


As the Wuhan Coronavirus COVIN 19 shutdowns continue across the nation, the following Delta Division Hamfests have been either cancelled or postponed:



Ides of March Hamfest
CANCELLED
Start Date: 03/28/2020
End Date: 03/28/2020
Location: Tennessee National Guard Armory
2017 E. Reelfoot Avenue
Union City, TN 38261



Sevier County Hamfest
CANCELLED
Start Date: 03/28/2020
End Date: 03/28/2020
Location: Sevier County Fairgrounds
754 Old Knoxville Hwy
Sevierville , TN 37862



April Fool Hamfest
POSTPONED
Start Date: 04/04/2020
End Date: 04/05/2020
Location: Crossroads Arena
2800 South Harper Road
Corinth, MS 38834



Hanging Judge Hamfest
CANCELED -
Start Date: 04/04/2020
End Date: 04/04/2020
Location: Sebastian County Storm Shelter Ben Garen Park
7700 So. Zero St.
Fort Smith, AR 72901



Northeast Louisiana Hamfest, ARRL Louisiana Section Convention
CANCELED

End Date: 04/18/2020

That is the list of cancelations as we have it.  We still have Memphis
FreeFest listed for April 11, 2020, and we will advise the division
membership as to the status when we learn more.


Although many of us are disappointed about not getting to go to these great hamfests, this is probably a prudent measure for the safety and health of our fellow amateurs and ARRL members.

We will all be back next year or later this year, better than before God willing.


Stay safe and be careful when venturing forth.
