W3EOC/R UHF System Back UP

Thanks to Jeff DePolo WN3A, working in the manual archives and offering his brain to pick via phone, we got the FM system back up again Saturday midday.

CCAR Server Down for Work

5 MAR 2009 -- The server hosting the CCAR APRS gateway handling member-operated WX stations on 144.990 MHz and W3EOC-5 radio e-mail will be down for a short period. It is being moved from the GSC computer room to a more stable operating environment while work in the computer room proceeds.

All CCAR WX sysops are asked to retune their stations to 144.39 for the period. Email to w3eoc-5@winlink.org also will not be serviced. Direct all email as necessary to races1@chesco.org.

Thanks.

Thanks for being part of CCAR and serving your community through amateur radio!

CCAR Offers ARRL Level I EmComm Training Course and Exam

In response to many requests CCAR is offering a one day "cram" course to prepare for the ARRL ARECC Level I exam. This course will be held Saturday, April 4, 2009 at 9 AM - 5 PM the Chester County Government Services Center, Room 170. The formal exam session immediately follows the review presentations. Sign-up for this course and we will help you with advance preparations, or you can study on your own and take the exam.

Our experience says that students who prepare themselves in advance pass the exam with little trouble. Without advance preparation the chances are 50-50 or worse.

The only cost is ARRL exam fee ($15). Come in the morning and have lunch courtesy of Chester County. There is no added cost....

The ARRL Level I certificate is seen as the minimum in order to be considered "trained" for our function by County, along with NIMS-required ICS-100 and ICS-700 courses.

If you do not hold a Level I certificate, you will be contacted individually by our training team. Level I classroom training and exams are a rare opportunity and normally available through online study. We are not able to offer this course very often, as it requires considerable effort and preparation by the instructors.

Sign up now before the limited number of seats are filled! CLICK HERE!

Delaware Valley FM Sprint Contest -- February 28

The Holmesburg Amateur Radio Club presents:
The Delaware Valley FM Sprint Contest.

Please join us on February 28th from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM for an evening of FM fun.

The object of the contest is to contact as many different zip codes as possible. The rules can be found at http://www.harcnet.org/contest.htm This is a great way to heck out your simplex coverage. It's good information to have if your favorite repeater went off the air. While the contest is centered in the greater Philadelphia area, all stations are invited to participate and submit logs.
