SnoVARC Planning Meeting This Thursday

Remember the SnoVARC meeting this Thursday is going to be dedicated to goal planning for the next 2 years.

Some of the ideas that were mentioned at the last meeting were:

Working with Camp Correy to set up radios
Working with the Boy Scouts for Jamboree on the Air for 2009
Having Tech license classes
Participating in local events (Duvall Dyas, Turkey Trot, etc)
Repeater location/optimization

Hope all members can attend this meeting so that we can have your thoughts and ideas on what you would like to see
your club do over the next two years.

Meeting is Thursday October 2nd at the Duvall Fire Station at 7PM

Thanks!

Technician Class for potential HAMS

Mel N7GCO <leadcoach@...>
 

I thought members of the club may know someone who would like to get a
license.
-------------------------------------------
Interested in Amateur Radio? Want to become a ham? The Technician
class license is the first of the FCC Amateur Radio licenses.

MicroHams will be sponsoring our last no-code Technician class course
in 2008 on October 17-19. Classes run 7:00pm-10:00pm Friday,
9:00am-5:00pm Saturday and 11:00am-noon Sunday. The class is available
to anyone but we ask you register in advance because we have limited
seating and materials. Testing will start at 2:00pm Sunday and is also
open to the public by reservation. The class will cover the entire
Element 2 (Technician) question pool.

The course will run $40 and includes a textbook, handouts and the
testing fee. The W5YI Technician Class book by Gordon West will be
provided including a number of other handouts, even discount coupons
for new radios. If you already have a book, the class fee is $20.
Testing is also open to anyone for any license class but those not
enrolled in the class will need to pay the standard $14 testing fee.

The October class will be held at the Mercer Island Community Center
at 8236 SE 24th Street, Mercer Island, WA 98040.

To register, simply email your contact information (name, phone
number(s), preferred email address) to classes@microhams.com. Letting
us know how you heard about the class would be helpful. For more
information email Classes@Microhams.com.


Repeater Software

Mel N7GCO <leadcoach@...>
 

I made Four (4) exact duplicates CD's of the programming disk (One for
the President, Vice President, Secretary and Fire Station)

and Nineteen (19) Cd's that include all of:
• Disk 1 (PS-3 Programming Software Ver 4.02)
• Disk 2 (PL-1 and PE -1 User Manuals)
• SVARC Constitution and ByLaws

I think Jerry will give them out at the next club meeting.

Duvall to Carnation Fire Station Communication

Mel N7GCO <leadcoach@...>
 

On Friday October 3, 2008 Tom Needham (WA7TBP) and Mel Ming (N7GCO)
did a test from the Carnation Fire Station to the Duvall Fire Station.

We were able to communicate simplex on the club primary communication
ferquency but not on the repeater.

Thanks to all that helped on the Turkey Trot Race Saturday, Nov. 15, 2008

Jerry NA7Z <GJRCK@...>
 

2008 REF Runs 5K/10K Turkey Trots Volunteers,

Thank you for all your efforts in making race day a success! 242
runners/walkers paid to run one of the two races with 225 toeing the
line -- not bad for a week with news headlines that read "...
Carnation is an island with severe to moderate flooding.(!).. " Soft
numbers indicate a net profit of $5,000 + was raised for healthy
youth grants in our schools.


Participant and spectator feedback has been super - runners have been
very complimentary about how well-manned the courses were and the
friendliness of the registration and finish crews. Truly, you all
made this event possible - set up crew, volunteer coordinator, course
marshals, SVARC, pace bikers, sweep bikers, water station workers,
registration volunteers, post race food coordinators, timers, finish
chute workers, photographers, expo helpers, Jake mascot ( Alex, you
were born for this role!), demonstration teams and an industrious
clean-up crew . The start "gun" just wouldn't go off without you!

So kudos to all of you and we hope to see you in volunteer gear at
the Duvall Days 5K/10K on June 6, 2009!

With great appreciation,

Your REF Runs 5K/10K Turkey Trot & Expo Committee

Paige Denison, Race Director Dean Vergillo, Course
Director Steve Denison & Robyn Vergillo Kim Lisk,
Expo Coordinator

My thanks also, Jerry NA7Z
