Members and Friends of JCRAC (updated September 1, 2021), 

Given this requirement and the recent rise in Covid-19 (Delta variant) cases we have decided to continue the ZOOM Meetings through the end of September 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.

The next update will be October 1, 2021.

Bill Gery, KA2FNK --  President JCRAC


President's Corner

September 2021

The public service events that were canceled in 2020 are catching up with us in September 2021. There are events on every weekend this month and some of the events canceled from last spring are now set for a date this fall.

The 145.29 repeater was a topic of discussion throughout last year. The cell tower site that housed the repeater underwent major facility work. Although we don’t have any commitment as to timing, we understand that the emergency power will be upgraded.

This year’s Ensor auction will occur on Saturday, October 23. Look through your shack for items to donate for sale. Vince, KEØCGR, will be heading up the raffle again this year. See details —and get your tickets—on the club’s web page.

Speaking of Ensor, our Club provides tour guides in October. Please sign up for one of the Saturday or Sunday slots.


Bill KA2FNK, President
