President's Corner

March 2021

February brought some of the coldest air the area has experienced in an exceptionally long time. My home weather station recorded two days with a low of minus 12 degrees Fahrenheit. I hope the rolling power blackouts I hope did not impact too many of you. Without heat and air temperatures that low pipes can freeze quickly. The pipe for my water garden froze for the first time. No damage to the pump and the water started to flow again as the ice melted on the pond. It appears that the pipe was not damaged either as I am not seeing water lost.

As you know, T-Mobile has done upgrades to the 145.29 repeater site. This included a total rework on the electric power.  While the work was in process our 145.29 repeater was off the air. T-Mobile called us when we could reconnect the power to the repeater. Bill (WAØCBW) and I met their crew at the site. The repeater has new power from the power distribution panel to the repeater. Bill was impressed by the professional workmanship.

Members and Friends of JCRAC (updated December 13, 2020), 

It should comes as no surprise that due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the restrictions for large group meetings, the Overland Park Christian Church has informed us that the church will not be available until as a meeting place until further notice. We will evaluate the possibility of having in person meeting at the end of the 1st Quarter 2021. Thanks for your understanding.  Until then we will be holding our twice monthly meetings via Zoom.

We are open to ideas for programs and meeting topics during this period.

Bill Gery, KA2FNK --  President JCRAC

New Website For Fusion

For anyone interested in Fusion and the Wires-X Kansas City Room, there is a new website.
 
 
This website is for information about the Kansas City Room, its repeaters and other interesting and useful information about our local room.
 
Note:  If you try to access it and get a not found error or a server not found error try again later. I am hosting it on a free hosting site and the paying users get priority over us free users. As in everything else you get what you pay for.
 
Also it is not optimized for your iphone or android. If you view it on your phone it will appear a bit disjointed but don't worry, everything is there.
