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


President's Corner

January 2020

2020 is behind us.  We became very familiar with the words “virtual” and “Zoom” meeting. Our club meeting will continue to be conducted using Zoom for the start of 2021, let us hope that by late spring we will be able to once again have in face meetings … and pizza.

2020 taught us much, though. Field Day was different for sure, but successful. No chigger bites! We did miss the Saturday evening dinner and the Sunday morning donuts. Watching everyone on Field Day Zoom meeting kept us all in touch. It was great to watch everyone operate.

The Breakfast Club transformed into a daily net for months and then picked up a new dimension with the “Virtual Breakfast Club” --” virtual”, there is that word--taking over the daily get together and the “On Air” becoming a Tuesday and Thursday net. We need to thank the on air and zoom meeting net controls.

COVID put my travel plans on hold. I am sure that your plans were affected, too. I did rebuild the ham shack and return to model building in 2020. I hope you all kept safe and found interests, old and new as I did.

Please note that our first “Zoom meeting “of the year will be January 8. There is that the other 2020 word, again – “Zoom”.

Have program ideas ready for 2021.


Bill KA2FNK, President


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.
