SARC Field Day was a Huge Success

davidftx <davidftx@...>
 

We had great weather and continous stream of guests and operators to our
Field Day location at Shavano Park City Hall.

We started no fires and only set the City Hall alarm off one time (at
about 1:00am). Any gathering is success when you don't have to call the
Fire Department and Police are only called once.

I need to comb over the log but it looks as if our claimed score will be
736.

Totals: 47 Dig 249 Phone

We will have an article and pictures on the website in the next 24 hours
or so, please check it.

I am extremely grateful to those who helped put this effort together.
We could not have done it without you.

Field Day Continues

davidftx <davidftx@...>
 

Greetings from Field Day!

The weather has been kind to us by providing overcast skys and only
occassional drizzle. The only real rain we have had (so far) was right
at BBQ time. But we managed to stay dry inside the shelter and under a
tarp we strung earlier just in case that happened.

There is still time to operate. We are going strong and will be on the
air through 1:00PM Sunday. Come on out to Shanvano Park City Hall!

Tear down will beging about noon and we will need help. We can get it
knocked out in about two hours if enough help shows up. Please consider
giving us a hand.

Office of the Governor

Daily, citizens across this great nation take exemplary strides for
American
and its future. Long valued for their role in furthering communications
across jurisdictions both large and small, amateur radio operators
continue
to make a difference.

Amateur radio operators come from all walks of life. Whether they prefer
Morse Code, voice communications on a hand-held radio, or computer
messages
transmitted through satellites, they all have an interest in what is
happening in the world, and they use radio to reach out.

Often seen as a time-honored pastime, amateur radio operators frequently
provide invaluable assistance in times of disaster, using their avenues
for
communications to support the efforts of first responders, rescuers and
others.

At this time, I encourage all Texans to learn more about amateur radio and
support the amateur operators who have provided important services during
times of crisis. Let us, therefore, celebrate and recognize their
accomplishments.

Therefore, I, Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, do hereby proclaim June
18-24,
2007,

Amateur Radio Operator Week

in Texas and urge the appropriate recognition whereof.

In official recognition whereof, I hereby affix my signature this the 15th
day of June, 2007.

Signed, Rick Perry

Field Day 2007 - one time msg update

Lee Besing
 

One time message update to those interested, delete if not interested in
FD. Here is link to some basic local Field Day location
information... http://sahams.org/fieldday/fieldday2007.htm

5325dab.jpg



Here is a summary of this weekend's activities in the rain....
* AARO holding their field day in usual location at the pavilion by the
running track at UTHSC. Enter thru the same guard gate you used for AARO
meetings, but turn left immediately and follow the perimeter road around
until you see all the activities and antennas.
* SARC holding their field day at the usual location in front of
Shavanoe City Hall on NW Military Drive. BBQ will be catered around 6pm to
those present for a count around 5:15pm.
* KARS (Kendall County) holding their field at the usual location,
Kendall County Fairgrounds on Hwy 46, but there is a "twist" this
year. Apparently there is another "paid" activity on-going this weekend at
the fairgrounds with a ticket price of $20/person at the gate. So unless
you have KARS ham club ID, or call on their 146.64 repeater to have someone
come escort you onto the property, you either pay $20 to get in, or you
don't get in.
* GVARC holding their field day at the usual location at the Comal
County Fairgrounds in New Braunfels
* ROOST holding their field day at the usual location down in Karnes
County.
There had been rumors of some other area clubs holding their own FD events,
but so far nobody has provided any details to me other than the above
information.

Redistributed, by Don, N5WSW Enjoy!

The month of June has a lot of things happening. I
will try to cover a
few of the happenings.

I hope no one has any problems with the heavy rains we
have been having lately. Today the north part of Texas
is having heavy flooding. Watch your TV for the latest
is these storms. Gainesville, Texas is almost
all under water according what the TV has to say.
People are being rescued from roof tops.
Most of the area seems to have about 2 feet of water.
The weather station in Ft. Worth came on 7.290 net to
see if there was any hams in the Gainesville area. No
response. I do hope that everyone made it
out.

I have some pictures on the web for you to view. One
is the 7290 net picnic on April 28. The other 2 are
from the Hurricane Conference in Galveston showing the
ARRL booth. I understand that it was well
represented by and a lot was gained.

The month of June is the beginning of the Hurricane
season. All we can do is hope it's not to bad and
doesn't cause much damage.

We have an event coming up this month, does anyone
know what it is?

It's called Field Day. We all get to have fun seeing
how fast we can set up stations in the field and then
communicate. Don't forget to send a radiogram to your
Section Manager or SEC for an extra 100 points.

Please listen on the frequency before you transmit to
be sure you are not interfering with someone. Please
don't use 14.300. That frequency is always busy. The
main thing is to enjoy yourself and fill up on BBQ
Texas style with lots of ribs, brisket, and sausage.
Don't forget the trimmings and the sauce. Be sure to
invite a new ham so they can see how this wonderful
hobby really operates on their stomach a piece of
wire and a radio. Again enjoy.

God Bless America and our Troops

Until next month, 73.

One Size Does Not Fit All

The traditional view of a ham radio club and its
meetings, is one
where meetings are held monthly and members discuss
old and new
business and other issues that affect the club. There
is usually a
coffee break and then a presentation or guest speaker.
The members
pay annual dues and the club runs a hamfest or other
fund raising
event. While this may be the structure used by many
radio clubs,
quite a number of ARRL-affiliated clubs operate
differently.

Clubs can affiliate with ARRL in one of four
categories.
1. Local Amateur Radio clubs
2. Regionally- or nationally-organized Amateur Radio
groups
3. Local school or youth groups, or Amateur Radio
clubs in homes
for the elderly or disabled
4. Club councils (clubs of clubs)

Over three quarters of ARRL affiliated clubs are
category one clubs
and a large majority of them follow the model that we
mentioned at
the beginning of this article. Clubs should be
organized to best
suit the membership and meet the mission of the club.


Some clubs may not require regularly scheduled
meetings where other
may meet more frequently to discuss club business or
activities.
Other clubs don't have formal meetings but they may
have regularly
scheduled social gatherings such as luncheons, or
volunteer periods
at Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs) or Red Cross
facilities.

Contest or other special interest clubs whose members
are spread out
over a large geographic area may meet on the air or on
the internet
in a chat room.
There are also quite a number of virtual clubs that
meet this way.
Because the mission of the club is to share
information or
participate in an on-the-air activity, this format
readily fits their
needs.

Often repeater organizations or clubs that have a
large investment in
capital assets will be structured in such a way to
protect the assets
and the officers of the organization. It's not
uncommon for a club
to hold business meetings separately from general
meetings; However,
business meetings should be open to all members who
wish to attend.

The organization of any club is spelled out in its
constitution and
by-laws. This is why it is so very important to take
some time and
devote plenty of thought when drafting these
documents. All clubs
that apply for ARRL affiliation have their
constitutions and by-laws
reviewed by our regulatory specialist, Dan Henderson,
N1ND. It is
not uncommon for ARRL to ask a club to fine-tune their
documents for
a number of reasons. Of course, any documents that
violate any State
or Federal laws are immediately sent back for the club
to review.
Sometimes ARRL will suggest that a club look beyond
the horizon and
try to prevent any potential issues by addressing
possible situations
in their constitutions or by-laws.

You may find this hard to believe but some squabbles
have turned into
very expensive court battles all because nobody ever
gave any thought
to the possibility of a situation arising in their
club. In the end,
everyone loses in these situations.

There are numerous "what-ifs" in any organization and
for this reason
a lot of careful thought should be put into drafting
of your club's
constitution and by-laws. Dan Henderson offers
suggestions and
points to consider when drafting your club's
constitution in the
document "What Is A Constitution?" This document is on
the web at
www.arrl.org/club. Although the ARRL shows a sample
constitution for
people to use as an example of the verbiage and
structure of this all
important document, the example should not be used as
is. After all,
you wouldn't be foolish enough to enter into a
contract using a
standard stationery store-type document. At least I
hope that you
wouldn't do that. Most clubs fit the traditional
model but each one
is unique and each constitution and set of by-laws
needs to be
drafted to fit the mission of that club.

*Note: Because laws of incorporation vary from State
to State, ARRL
suggests that you contact an attorney in your area who
is familiar
with corporate law. If you do not already have a
relationship with
an attorney, you may use the ARRL Volunteer Counsel
Program to locate
an attorney in your area.

____________________________________________________________________

That's Using Your Web

Jay Harrison, KC0CNB of the Benton County Radio
Operators in Arkansas
reports that attendance for their hamfest increased
substantially
because of an informative website and other marketing
efforts by the
club.

ARRL Hamfest listings on the web and in QST include
web URL so that
readers can be directed to more information than can
be provided in
the listing. Jay's club had success by providing
detailed
information about the hamfest.

____________________________________________________________________

Field Day Doesn't Have To be Stone Aged

If your club is not already using computers to log
your Field day
contacts, perhaps you may want to look into the
possibility of doing
so. With a surplus of cheap PCs available to hams,
along with
inexpensive or free logging programs, computer logging
is within the
limitations of most clubs. Using computers is a great
way for a team
to run a single operating position. A "Y" adapter on
the headphones
allows both the operator and the logger to listen to
the receiver.
This way one person can send the exchange information
and the other
can log the information of the station being worked.
Mutiple
operators using one radio in this way can learn
oeprating techniques
from each other and help with phonetics on phone and
make fewer
mistakes on CW.

The computer will quickly check for duplicate contacts
(dupes), can
generate CW with canned messages and key the
transmitter, keep track
of time, keep track of the operators, and many other
useful
functions. Because Field Day rules allow for QSOs to
be made with
the same station once on each band and mode there is
no need for
complicated networks. What happens on the 20 meter CW
station has no
bearing on the 75 meter phone station. All that you
need to do is
designate a logging captain to collect the logs and
merge them
together at the end. Even the simplest program that I
have inspected
has the provision to export an ADIF file that can be
imported into
another log or create a contest log entry in the
proper format.

Many of the popular logging programs, like those
advertised in QST,
have provisions for ARRL Field Day and some programs
are written just
for Field Day. A search on the internet will yield
logging programs
that will vary from the plain and simple to fancy
varieties.

A lot of the logging programs are able to send CW via
a port on the
PC eliminating the need for a memory keyer or other
peripherals.
Computer to radio CW keying interfaces are cheap to
buy or you can
roll your own for less than a few dollars and about 30
minutes of
bench time, depending on your soldering skills. (Tip:
The CW keying
interface can make a great club meeting project.)

Here are a few tips if your club is going to use
computers for
logging during Field day.

1. Set up your PCs or laptops in advance. Now is the
time to
start.
2. Pre-load all software and become familiar with its
operation.

3. Have a training session for your operators. Most
logging
software is straight forward: type in the call and
exchange
information then hit the return key. Make sure that
your team is
familiar with basic operation and entering contacts.
4. Back up data regularly. Thumb (flash memory)
drives are
great for this.
5. Monitors don't like sun glare. Make provisions to
shade the
monitors so that operators can see the screen during
the day.
Experiment with this before the event.

So, even if your Field Day accommodations are
primitive your
operation doesn't have to be stone aged. (Yes, even a
caveman can do
it.)

Complete rules for ARRL Field Day can be found on the
web at:
http://www.arrl.org/contests/rules/2007/fd.html

Be sure to order your 2007 Field Day t-shirts, pins
and other
goodies.

These t-shirts make excellent gifts to those who help
make your
club's event a fun time for all.

Need one more SAG for Tour de Cure May 19th and 20th

Shane O'Neal NS5D <shane@...>
 

Hi folks,

I'm looking for two more SAG drivers or teams to man SAGs for the Tour de Cure bike tour on May 19th and 20th.

This tour is similar to the MS150 Bike to the Beach, but it heads North from San Antonio to Austin, with an overnight stay in San Marcos at Texas State University. Dorms will be provided.

You will need a 2 meter mobile (not an HT) with a 12V lighter plug and a mag mount antenna.

If you are interested, please contact me as soon as possible by replying directly to shane@ns5d.com. Please do not reply back to the entire group.

Thanks,
Shane NS5D
