We Are Trying Something New: A Hybrid Meeting!
William AC2ZV has been kind enough to offer a room in his Micro Museum facility, where he lives. William will only be able to offer eight seats for this December’s meeting, and he will need to maintain Covid-19 protocols – documentation of vaccination status and use of a mask during most times of the meeting. Some members will meet in person at the Micro Museum facility (123 Smith Street 2nd Floor, between Dean and Pacific in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. It is about a block and a half North from F or G Train Bergen St and B65, B57 on Smith. Other subways and buses are near the neighborhood too. Metered Street Parking becomes free after 7pm) and will be linked via Zoom Meeting software with the remaining members who will continue to use Zoom for a virtual meeting. If you are interested in claiming a seat, before they run out, contact William AC2ZV wlaziza(at)mindspring.com, as well as Berlotte KD2MYF berlotte2000(at)yahoo.com, who will be coordinating the in-person portion meeting with William.

Just send us an email with your email address, that you would like the invitation to be sent to (please provide your real full name, anonymous requests will not be replied to). You do not have to be a member to attend our meetings. In fact, we urge those interested to drop in and join us for our monthly meeting.
We offer a “pre-meeting” during the 7 PM to 8 PM portion, where we have arranged for an informal question and answer session. Both unlicensed, as well as license holders, may have questions, and our members will try our best to provide answers or at least sources of information for those requiring them.
The General Meetings begin around 8 PM and usually last until 9:30 to 10 PM.
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 mention a topic that you would like to hear more about. No question is a silly question.
