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

February 2021

The first month of 2021 is now behind us. Hopefully with the COVID-19 vaccinations rolling out we will be able to start larger group gatherings in the not too distant future. Of course, we will have to see how things develop. In the meantime, let’s all try to be as safe as we can.

Because we hope that we will be able to have group gatherings in June, we have started Field Day 2021 planning. Jay has contacted the Park and we have the permit for the site at the old farm. We will re-evaluate Field Day activities as the date nears.

We are doing the same kind of thinking about the Ensor auction in the Fall. We will set a date and see how things improve. In the meantime, we will be asking for volunteers for Ensor to cover our club’s commitment to the museum once it is open for tours again.

I hope you have been able to take part in the “COVID fox hunts” that were started by Kyle. Watch “Larry’s list” for information.

Bob Heil will be joining us for our February 12th Zoom meeting. He will be the program following the business meeting.


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.
