Another SMRC Silent Key

It is with great sadness that I must announce that our club has another silent key

Ed Wood W4OBW became SK at the end of August

He was a great friend of mine and a loyal supporter of the club and our Cedars of Lebanon Hamfest even though he wasnt at alot of our monthly meetings

I enjoyed his stories of his police days in Memphis and of his running into Tennessee's lawman legend "Buford Pusser" in his earlier times there

I will be reminded of his friendship at Radio Central for a long time as he gave me the gas heater which was a much upgraded improvement from the previous system

Here is a link to the obituary






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 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

Winter Field Day Association Announces 2016 event

Winter Field Day Association (WFDA) is a dedicated group of Amateur Radio Operators who believe that emergency communications in a winter environment is just as important as the preparations and practice that is done each summer but with some additional unique operational concerns.

We believe as do those entities of ARRL Organizations like ARES & RACES that maintaining your operational skills should not be limited to fair weather scenarios. The addition of a Winter Field Day will enhance those already important skills of those that who generously volunteer their time and equipment to these organizations. This is why WFDA is open to all licensed amateur radio operators worldwide.

If you are serious about emergency communications as we are; we welcome you to join us for our yearly event. We are sure that you will find this event a pleasant change and challenge to that of a normal summer time field day.


Congratulations are in order for two of our associate members

They are 

Bill Frye who is now KM4NNY

Parker Eakes who is now KM4NNW

They will now become full members of the SMRC with all privileges for the remainder of this year without any associated dues increase per SMRC Bylaws


Please let these new hams know how proud you are of their accomplishment
