Welcome to the Alliance Amateur Radio Club’s online clubhouse. This site is just one of our presences on the web. We are also on Facebook, Twitter, and groups.io. Continue reading
To: Northeast Ohio Amateur Radio Clubs (and far western PA)
This is an invitation for your Amateur Radio club to join the Cuyahoga Falls ARC in our annual CFARC To The Field event. A few years ago, we developed a local activity similar to POTA (Parks On The Air) and the Ohio State Parks On The Air (OSPOSTA) activity. Our local activity is called Summit County Metro Parks On The Air and unlike POTA and OSPOTA is mainly a VHF/UHF activity as opposed to HF. The award runs year-round, but last year we decided to have a club activity night in the parks called CFARC To The Field in place of one of our regular meetings.
Here is a list of frequencies/modes used:
This year we would like to invite other local clubs to take part in the activity. If you would please pass this information on to your club members, we would greatly appreciate it.
There are a few ways your members can get involved:
Many of your members are close enough to Summit County Parks that they could make contact with park activators from their home stations. So no travel or planning would be necessary (beyond putting the date on their calendar).
Individual members are welcome to travel to Summit County to activate a park entity.
Your club could plan to activate a park or parks as a group.
This is designed as a friendly competition and scores will be reported in our newsletter. There are no prizes for the highest scorers, but a $50 DX Engineering gift certificate will be given via a random drawing of all entrants that submit a log with at least five contacts.
The date and time for this year’s CTTF are 4:30-7:30 PM (2030-2330 UTC), Wednesday, September 14. Here is the full information on the CTTF:

We will be doing a live presentation at the Cuyahoga Falls ARC meeting Aug 10, 2022, at 7:30 PM, which will be available via Zoom.
If your club is interested in a presentation on this for your meeting, please contact Anthony Luscre, K8ZT firstname.lastname@example.org. Anthony also has a number of unrelated presentations he has been doing for clubs around the US during the pandemic and would be happy to do one of these at a future meeting of your club- tiny.cc/k8zt-p.
CME IMPACT SPARKS AURORAS AND STEVE: As predicted, a CME hit Earth’s magnetic field during the early hours of July 23rd. The impact sparked a display of photographic auroras over North America that reached as far south as Virginia. The mysterious ribbon of light named “STEVE” also made an appearance. Full story @ Spaceweather.com.
Don’t miss the next CME: Subscribers to our Space Weather Alert Service received a 30 minute warning of the approaching CME, allowing them to dash outside and set up their cameras in time for the display.
Here’s our results as submitted. Good job everyone!
