The FCARC will raffle a Yeasu FT-991 440 to 160 meters plus Fusion
This is a fund raising event. This is to buy the equipment to have the 145.33 repeater a Wires-X repeater. When done anyone will be able to get on the Fusion system using a standard HT or Fusion radio.
This Raffle is limited to 85 tickets. Each ticket is $20. When all the tickets are sold and paid for the drawing will be at the next FCARC meeting or event.
Ham exams will be available at the FCARC Swapfest held at Monarch Gardens in Appleton, November 6, 2016.
Registration begins at 9:00 am and ends at 10:00 am in the lower level. A pictured I.D. is required. Cost of the exam is $15.00 (set by the ARRL VEC) cash or a check made out to "ARRL VEC". If you are taking an exam to upgrade you must provide a copy of your current license. Calculators are permitted but cellphones must be silenced or off and put away.
The 146.76 repeater was taken off the air after exhibiting symptoms of low rf power out. If need be and its still under warranty it will be returned to Yaesu for repairs. A back up repeater will be put in place in a few days. Please consider using one of the other FCARC repeaters, 145.33 or 443.65, both 100.0 Hz CTCSS. Also available is the 442.175 (100.0 Hz) repeater in Appleton.
Ameritron AL-1200 like new, used sparingly. Reason for sale, I completed my K line.
$1500.00 cash. Pick up only, will consider delivery or meeting at a reasonable distance. (920)213-1043, W9OD@arrl.net
The FCARC supports a monthly net to help interested hams learn about & practice Slow Scan TV (SSTV) on 2 meters. You are invited to join. FCARC membership is not necessary. This is a semi-formal, directed net. We meet at 6 pm using both FM voice & SSTV transmissions on 145.330 MHz, Tone 100. All SSTV transmissions are in Martin 2.
I will begin sending a few SSTV pictures prior to the net beginning at 5:45 pm for your enjoyment, and then I'll call for checkins at 6 pm.
The next FCARC VE Exam will be September 10, 2016 at Fox Valley Technical College, 1825 N. Bluemound Drive, Appleton, 54912-2277.
