The Kings County Radio Club is an organization dedicated to the art and science of radio communications. We help to educate those individuals interested in learning about Amateur Radio as a hobby.
Our Year End 2017 Holiday/Merry Christmas/Happy Channukah Party will be held December 6th at 8 PM. For all members that have paid up their 2018 dues, attendance is free! All others will be required to either pay their 2018 dues or to pay a nominal $5 per person fee. We hope that many of our members will join us for this celebration!
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!
For the rest of 2017 all KCRC meetings and VE sessions will be held ACROSS THE STREET from New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital at 501 Sixth Street, “Wesley House” in room 6B, on the sixth floor! Take the elevator to the 6th floor and follow the signs to Room 6B! If the front door is locked, please wait there while we get it opened.
We have a proposed amended KCRC Bylaws for 2018! The amended version was shown during the September Meeting and was passed by a quorum. The final vote will be held during our December Year End Holiday Meeting/Party! Click here to see what the new Bylaws will look like!
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 Yeasu 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://Fusion.kc2rc.com. Join in on the fun. Hope to see you there!
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.
