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 voice & SSTV transmissions on 145.330 MHz, Tone 100.
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.
It's that time of year already.
Elections will be held at the May General Membership meeting but, the April meeting is when we take nominations.
If you would like to run for one of these positions or want to nominate a reserved or shy individual, then April is your meeting.
Any member in good standing (AKA dues are paid) is eligible to run for a position and encouraged to do so.
We hope to have a good turnout at both meetings and to see you there.
Just a reminder that your WI QSO Party logs need to be submitted to WARAC by Thursday April 10th.

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh has set its dates for the next seven years through 2020.
While the 62nd annual EAA fly-in convention at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, will be held July 28-August 3, future years will schedule the event to run completely in late July. That slight schedule shift affects three or four years out of every seven, with a goal of ending on the last Sunday in July each year.
The 3905 Century Club is an international amateur radio club founded in 1977 which has operated Worked All States, DX and awards nets on our amateur bands.
Their purpose is to provide all amateurs—both foreign and domestic—interested in Worked All States or other awards with organized nets populated with like-minded amateurs for making the necessary contacts and receiving the necessary QSLs. They also have our own extensive Awards Program, which goes well beyond just WAS awards, as well as their own domestic and DX QSL bureaus, all of which are described here on their web site:
The Appleton 442.175 Repeater is now a Yaesu System Fusion Repeater. It is capable of both digital and analog FM with automatic mode switching. If you transmit analog FM it will repeat analog FM. If you transmit C4FM FDMA (similar to APCO 25 phase one) it repeats the same. This repeater is not compatible with DSTAR or P-25 phase two radios.
