Well, It’s Time To Pay Up Again!
Yup, it’s that time of the year again, when we implore all of our fine members to get out their checkbooks, or you guyz in the 21st century, your PayPal accounts and pay your 2018 Club dues! For 2018, it’s $30, unless you qualify for a discount. So PLEASE pay early (and often)! Your support of the Club allows us to do so many things to advance our exciting and rewarding Amateur Radio Hobby, both locally and anywhere that the Internet reaches!
The KCRC Fusion Net!
The Club has begun a weekly Yaesu Fusion Digital Net, every Thursday at 9 PM on the KC2RC Repeater, with Jason KD2LRX as your Net Control Operator. Everyone with the capability to receive and transmit Yaesu Fusion Digital Voice is urged to check into the Net. For those out of the area, we have arranged a Wires-X Room “KC2RC-ROOM” for remote access, and for those that don’t yet have a Yaesu Fusion capable radio, we stream the audio one way through the Internet (as we do with our analog signals) at http://stream.kc2rc.com. Join in on the fun. Hope to see you there! Analog users can also Connect to the Fusion Net by Using a Analog WiresX capable Repeater and connecting to the ( KC2RC-ROOM ) Node # 40821
The KCRC Bi-Weekly Technical Net!
We sponsor an informal Technical Question & Answer Net on the second AND fourth Wednesdays of each month at 9 PM on the KC2RC Repeater, 146.730 MHz output, 146.130 MHz input with an 88.5 Hz PL tone. Everyone, please come. Ask a question, or answer one, or just come to show moral support. No question is a silly question.
