Cherokee Heritage Festival Public Service Event in Cleveland

on Jul 25 : 23:50  Posted by e107  Category:   Comments are turned off for this item

The Cleveland Amateur Radio Club and its ARES group are looking for volunteers to work a public service event on August 2nd and 3rd.

The event is the Cherokee Heritage Festival.
The location is Red Clay State Park in Bradley County.
The times are 9:30am to 4:00pm with shifts being 2 hrs long

The hams in Cleveland have been very good to assist Hamilton County with events. This would be a good time to return the favor.
This has the making of a fun event that after you are done volunteering, you can enjoy the Festival.

Please either contact Derek Wooley(KD5UBL) at <his call sign>@arrl.net

Or Brian Simms(K4VOM) at <his call sign>@arrl.net

You can also post to this message and we will make the connection for you.


Thanks and 73,

Amateur Radio Parity Act HR-4969

on Jul 24 : 20:36  Posted by e107  Category:   Comments are turned off for this item

The amateur radio cummunity needs your supoort. There is a bill in the House of Representatives that call for the FCC the “reasonable accommodation” three-part test of the PRB-1 federal pre-emption policy to private land-use restrictions regarding antennas. At present PRB-1 only applies to state and municipal land-use ordinances, and the FCC has indicated that it will not act to provide the same legal protections from private land-use agreements — often called covenants, conditions, and restrictions or CC&Rs — without direction from Congress.

The ARRL has set up a webpage on their site for more information on HR 4969 and how to go about notifying your representative that you want their support

The page is located at http://www.arrl.org/hr-4969

Please take the time and send a letter or email to your representative soon before this session of Congress has closed. There is a form letter that you can use to to do this.

If you need any assistance, give a call or email.

Thank you for your time on this important issue.

Meigs County Emergency Drill

on Jun 25 : 02:59  Posted by e107  Category:   Comments are turned off for this item

Wednesday June 25 at 10:00am EST, there will be a drill for the evacuation of Hamilton County to the shelter in Meigs. This is part of the exercise for Sequoyah Nuclear Plant.

Meigs County EMA, Bradley County EMA, and Hamilton County EMA will activate for this event. Bradley County and Hamilton County ARES will also call up a drill net during the time frame of the event.

Hamilton County ARES net will be on the 146.790(-) repeater. Dewayne Siddon and Brian Simms will be at the EOC to make contact with the Bradley County ARES net on 146.925(-) 114.8t and will make contact with Meigs County shelter on 147.180(+) 118.8t. We will also run the ARES net for HC on a second radio.

All ARES members are encouraged to check in to the net on the 146.790 repeater during the time frame. This will allow us to know how many members would be active during the event. There will be no further action required but to check in.

Lets have a good showing of support from Hamilton County during this drill.

Thanks and 73,

Monthly Meeting Time Change

on May 19 : 20:05  Posted by e107  Category:   Comments are turned off for this item

Today I confirmed with Greg Waite the desire to change the meeting time up an hour. We will have the room from 5pm EST to 9pm EST.

The monthly meeting will now be the 4th Thursday of each month, at 6:00pm EST.

This change should help us have the ability to have the meeting and still have time to hold the ARES Net.
