Up-Coming Events for RCARC

Up-Coming events for the Rusk County Amateur Radio Club

22 May, RCARC Monthly Meeting - Henderson Fire Department, Station One, West Main St.

14 – 16 June, VHF QSO Party - For amateurs in the US and Canada (and their possessions) to work as many amateur stations in as many different 2 degrees x 1 degree Maidenhead grid squares as possible using authorized frequencies above 50 MHz.

26 June, Rusk County Amateur Radio Club Testing Session, with monthly club meeting to follow the testing session - 6 p.m. Henderson Fire Department, Station One, West Main St. Let’s talk this up and encourage folks to take advantage of this testing session to up-grade their license, and especially let’s get the word out to non-licensed folks that are interested in getting their amateur license.

28 – 29 June, Field Day - To work as many stations as possible on any and all amateur bands and to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions. The Rusk County Club is planning to have three stations on the air and we will need operators to man the stations. We will have a HF, 6 Meter, and 2 Meter station set up at the Rusk County EOC Office, located on the North West side of the Rusk County Court House, in the old county jail building. Make plans now to come out and participate. Everyone is welcome to take a turn or turns operating the various stations. Be sure to check the RCARC website for updates as we firm up the plans and schedule. Spread the word!
