SMRC is looking forward to a great 2016---Next meeting at Shoneys in Smyrna---267 N Lowry St---See You There

Boy Scouts of America Jamboree On The Air October 14 15 16

SMRC will be operating with the Scouts during JOTA this year on October 14 15 16 weekend

We will try to put up 2 antennas and set up 2 stations and keep operators for scouts to make as many contacts as possible during the event

The final location has not been determined but tentatively it looks to be Barfield Park in Murfreesboro at this time

Randy W4WRB and Russell WA4IVD attended the Scout Leaders September Rountable this past Wednesday night

Randy gave a brief talk on ham radio and talked about how he had intertwined scouting and ham radio over the past 50 years

No rotten tomatoes were thrown

The leaders were very responsive and several showed interest in learning

Old Codger Net Control

John Crawford

Or is it Uncle Howard

Or an escapee from Dr Seuss

 

 

If We Teach Ham Radio To Kids

Old Codger Certificates are Back

That's right folks

If you missed out and have been regretting it, nows your chance

Once again you can get an emailed version to print out your very own numbered OCN Certificate

Just contact WW4FM  Bill Wood at  ww4fm@aol.com for your certificate

Please provide him with your callsign, name, and OCN (if you are not such an old codger that you have forgotten) and he will email your special certificate to you

What to do if you are so far behind the times that you don't have computers and email

Then just get your grandkids to assist you with this procedure

We are sure that they can bail you out on this one

 

That's all that is required so make up for lost time and get that OLD Codger Certificate for your shack

FCC Goes Paperless, ARRL Predicts Licensing Headaches

FCC “Paperless” Amateur Radio License Policy Goes into Effect on February 17

(Originally posted on ARRL.org 28 Jan 2015)

Starting February 17, the FCC no longer will routinely issue paper license documents to Amateur Radio applicants and licensees. The Commission has maintained for some time now that the official Amateur Radio license authorization is the electronic record that exists in its Universal Licensing System (ULS), although the FCC has continued to print and mail hard copy licenses. In mid-December the FCC adopted final procedures to provide access to official electronic authorizations, as proposed in WT Docket 14-161 as part of its “process reform” initiatives.

Would you like to be part of the SMRC Net Control crew but don't want to call the nets? You can help net controls by running the database support for those who do call the nets on the air. Its very easy and helps net controls do their job more efficiently.
