President’s Remarks June 18, 2020

Good Afternoon Everyone:

The month of June is now in full swing. We had a very successful 2020 Fundraiser with our very own Rick Graber WD8AYC winning the FT 450D radio, and we understand he is enjoying use the radio.

June 22-28 2020 has been declared by Alliance Mayor Alan Andreani as Amateur Radio Week in Alliance, Ohio. We have a full page Proclamation sign by Mayor Andreani and he personally   appreciates all the hard work and dedication of Alliance Amateur Radio Club and it’s members.

James KD8VT and his crew consisting of: Andrew KE8ELR, Karen N8HUC, Shawn KD8ZEZ, Paul K2ASA,  Ron KE8HCY, Heath KE8KAV, Dallas KB8SKS, Tomas KC8ZEH, Andy AC8JR, Chris AC8VN And Guests Doug & Jen Jinmison and Kristen Andrews completed a tower/antenna install at Shawn’s home on Saturday June 13th 2020. This is our fourth(4th) tower install in 2020. We had a great time and fellowship was enjoyed by all.

ARRL Field Day June 27-28 2020 is almost here. This year, we return to First Christian Church (DOC) located at 1141 West Beech Street in Alliance for the first part of the June 2020 ARRL Field Day. We will be using Two(2) class rooms in the east wing of the church where the “Small Parking Lot” is located. We will be entering through Door Six(6) a single entrance door off the small parking lot. It is the same room which we used for our March 2020 business meeting, a sign will be posted on the door so you will know that you are at the right place in the church building. Sunday June 28th, will be spent in your own “Shack” in your home.

The second part of Saturday’s Field Day will be Licensing Testing beginning at 9 am in a room near the room where we will be operating in.  Signs will be place by the entrances of both rooms, I will serve as your host throughout the day  You must have a FRN (Federal Registration Number) from the FCC, if you do not have one, go to FCC.Org and complete the questionnaire at FRN and downloaded the certificate and bring it with you to the licensing session. It is highly recommended that you take practice tests for all licensing exams well in advance of June 27th. CDC regulations guidelines are to be observed and practiced. Only operators and people taking exams will be in either room. No socializing will take place per CDC regulations.

Questions? Call me and any question concerning Licensing testing should be directed to Frank WA8WHP. Stay safe and please honor and respect CDC regulations.

Good Morning AARC Members, America finds its self in an unfamiliar situation. Now is a time to remain calm and use good old fashion common sense. President Trump, Governor DeWine, Stark County and all the local governments are doing what is necessary to meet this unprecedented medical emergency. I notice as I opened my computer a simple procedure for all of us to practice during the duration of this medical emergency, so let me share it with you!








Their is a phrase that states, “This Too Shall Pass”. We are Americans, we have the safest food supply, the best medical system in the world. Now is the time for everyone to work together to meet, stop and overcome this world wide medical emergency.

Good Morning: Well it has been a busy several days and especially Wednesday March 11th 2020. We were force to find another meeting site for our monthly meeting on March 11th, but we were able to move the meeting to First Christian Church in Alliance where we had our Christmas dinner this past year. AultmanAlliance Community Hospital implemented a temporary policy of not permitting meetings of outside groups in their conference rooms. Hopefully, after this world wide medical emergency passes, we will return to the hospital for our meetings. In the mean time, we are working on a solution for this situation and we will advised you when we secure a site.

The remaining few weeks of our Club’s Training Classes and Tech and General license testing will be held in the Louisville Sportsman Club. Frank Sanor WA8WHP, the training coordinator has the direction s to this site. Many thanks to Chris AC8VN for pitching in to help Frank on this project.

Due to the world wide medical emergency, most of the Ham fest’s events that we were counting on to help bolster our ticket sales for our Club’s big ways and means project have been canceled. We must now count on “On Line” sales and in-person sales at our and other clubs meetings. We have just under 300 tickets left of the 600 tickets purchased for a chance on the YAESU FT-450D.

At our March meeting, we are proceeding to secure a trailer to hold all AARC’s equipment, Chris AC8VN and James KD8VT will serve as co-chairs. We currently have equipment stored on a personal non member property and we need to get the issue of storage handled forthwith.

Last but not least dues are due for all AARC members by April 1st, please download the renewal application from W8LKY.ORG web site and fill it out and along with your check, send it to our mail address located on our web site.

Many thanks to Dave WD8AYE who gave an interesting presentation on DMR at our March 11th meeting and also joined the club, many thanks Dave.

See you on the air or in person soon,
