NABRC April Meeting

Bishop Gregory Godsey
 

Hello all,

I have had several request about our April meeting. At the current moment, no decision has been made about whether or not we will have a public meeting. A lot of the decision will be based on whether or not we can meet at the hospital.

The Executive Committee will continue to monitor the situation and will let you all know as soon as a decision is made.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

GREENE CTY SHERIFF: Just received word that the 2020 Dayton Hamvention has been cancelled. nixle.us/BPGH4


Hamvention Cancelled

KENT HUFFORD
 

 

The Hamvention Executive Committee has been monitoring the COVID19 pandemic. We have worked very closely with our local and state health Departments.

It is with a very heavy heart the Hamvention Executive Committee has decided to cancel Hamvention for this year.

This decision is extremely difficult for us but with around two months until the Great Gathering we felt this action necessary.

More specific details regarding the closure will soon be posted on our website www.hamvention.org.

Thank you for your understanding in this time of International Crisis.

Parents/Guardians: 

This afternoon, Governor McMcaster issued an executive order to close all public schools throughout the state for a minimum period of two weeks. Our District has been preparing for the potential of a closure, and, at this time, we are expediting Distance Learning and Nutrition planning to ensure continued student learning and nutritional service throughout this mandated closure.

This school closure will begin immediately and is expected to continue at least through the end of the month. There will be no school for students in Aiken County beginning tomorrow. District leaders and school principals are asked to report to their work locations tomorrow morning to finalize planning. Teachers and other staff members should be on call tomorrow and prepared to report to work, as requested, to assist with planning.

All staff members will be essential to the success of our Distance Learning and Nutritional Service and will be called upon, as needed, to support implementation. Aiken County Public Schools will meet its financial commitment to all employees.

Additional details on the distribution of students’ printed Distance Learning Packets, remote teacher conferencing and virtual learning will be shared with parents/guardians on or before Wednesday, March 18.

Aiken County Public Schools’ has submitted required documentation to the State Department and we expect to be able to begin transporting grab-and-go student meals to students 18-years and younger throughout the county as early as Tuesday, March 17.

We can only imagine the impact that this announcement will have on our families. Please know that our school district family is committed to supporting the educational and nutritional needs of our community. We appreciate your patience in finalizing plans with essential staff members tomorrow and will have additional information after that time.

-King Laurence, Superintendent

International Space Station Resupply Mission to Carry New ARISS Ham Radio Gear

The scheduled March 7 (UTC) SpaceX CRS-20 mission to the International Space Station (ISS) will include the initial Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) Interoperable Radio System (IORS) flight unit, which is listed as a primary payload. The IORS is the foundation of the ARISS next-generation amateur radio system on the space station. Once at the space station, the IORS will be stowed for later installation.

The ARISS hardware team built four flight units, and the first will be installed in the ISS Columbus module. A second flight unit expected to be launched on a later 2020 cargo flight will be installed in the Russian Service Module. NASA contracts with SpaceX to handle ISS resupply missions.

The IORS represents the first major upgrade of on-station ARISS equipment. The package will include a higher-power radio, an enhanced voice repeater, and updated digital packet radio (APRS) and slow-scan television (SSTV) capabilities for both the US and Russian space station segments. The IORS consists of a custom-modified JVCKenwood TM-D710GA transceiver, an AMSAT-developed multi-voltage power supply, and interconnecting cables.

The ARISS hardware team remains busy on IORS development and final certification. While the initial unit has been certified for launch and stowage on ISS, the team is still deep into the final certification of the IORS for flight operations, and construction of a second flight unit is in progress.

ARISS will mark 20 years of continuous amateur radio operation on the space station in November.

You can subscribe to the RF Finder App.  It has many functions including distance from repeaters, direction, PL tone, Mode, etc.

BEST DAM RIDE 2020

 

 

 

Sunday April 19, 2020

Time to signup and guarantee your spot!

Almost time for the Best Dam Ride 2020 The date is Sunday April 19th. We (ARCA) need volunteers to man a 16 person communications network around the 100 mile Lake Thurmond course.

This is a lot of fun as the event is a Ride not a Race and therefore not intense. It is a charitable event sponsored by Chain Reaction Bicycle in Evans. This year the ride will support the Augusta Urban Ministries, SORBA CSRA Bike Group, and the Liam Caracci Foundation. The ARCA provides communications support at designated water stops, recovery vehicles for breakdowns, mobile support for sponsor vehicles, and a Network Control Station at the Start/Finish Area in the Lower Dam Recreation Area. You don't have to be an ARCA Club member to volunteer, just a licensed Amateur any class with mobile VHF (2M) equipment capability.

You will receive an event T-Shirt and there is a FREE BBQ in the picnic area after the ride for all participants and volunteers. For detailed information and display of course routes, go to the events tab on the w4dv.club website.

If you want to participate, just click the volunteer button, fill out the form, and submit. We will send you a complete information sheet and keep you informed of any changes as we get closer to the event.

This is our top event of the year and it fills up fast. So don't delay signing up!

     I have attended two meetings since I arrived here in October. Great meetings! Very good, informative, useful programs!
     At the end of our last meeting I met another new ham to the area, he was from So. Calif., Fullerton I believe. I believe his name may be Dave also, but I didn't get his call sign. I would like to get in contact with him and would like to receive his contact info!

Thanks!
