SSTV Net - June 14

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.

Community Fest

Summer is finally here and with it summertime events like CommunityFest! This event
is a great way to enjoy the summer sun, festivities, and company of other hams.

This is a unique event for several reasons. First, it's the 4th of July, which is a Saturday this year.
This means fireworks to finish off the day. It's also an all-day event (for
the few who choose to stay that long) that starts at 6am and runs until
roughly 10pm. Most people will work a 3 hour shift prior to eating some
excellent food, however if you are only able to help for an hour or so that

The JDRF needs your help.

The JDRF Walk organizers have contacted Judy, WJ9K, asking for our assistance again this year. The 5K walk is scheduled for May 16 at Riverside Park in Neenah. As in the past we will meet at the Recreational Park (Neenah Swimming Pool) parking lot which is also the location of rest stop 1. This will give us ample parking and get us away from the noise (PA and loud music) at the park. The Walk begins at 10 AM so we should meet at Rec Park at 9 AM for assignments which will be given out on a first come basis.
