Interested in learning about Ham Radio?

Members of the Key City Amateur Radio Club, will once again be providing communications support for the Steam-N-Wheels Bike Race and the Abilene Parks and Recreation Department.

Amateur Radio is a hobby open to anyone interested in communicating around the world and leaning about electronics.

The KCARC invites anyone interested in the learning more to join us at Sea Bee Park, at 10:00 am, on Saturday, March 26th.

Steam-N- Wheels

The “Steam-N-Wheels” Bicycle Race will be held Saturday March 26th . We need volunteers to help with the race and to keep all participants safe along the route. One thing has changed! TXDot has started construction on the routes along FM600. Therefore, a change to the route has to be made. I have a meeting with Abilene Parks Division Wednesday and during the March Key City Amateur Radio Club meeting, I will advise those that wish to volunteer for the race on the new route.

VE Test Session March 5th

Our next VE Test Session will be held at the Mall Library in Abilene on Saturday March 5, 2022 at 1 p.m. CST.

If you wish to test you must be preregistered. You will also need to have a Federal Registration Number or FRN from the FCC. Go to: https://apps.fcc.gov/coresWeb/publicHome.do to obtain your number.

Please email me at: WT5X@WT5X.org  for instructions on what you will need to bring to the test session.

Good Luck!

It’s Meeting Time!

The February agenda will be exciting. I am going to appoint a committee to update our club constitution and by-laws. We also need to discuss the upcoming 2022 Field Day plus, if we have time, I would like to present a program about the National Traffic System (NTS) and how to properly fill out the ARRL Amateur Radiogram. Once again, the best way to grow our AWESOME club is to get everyone involved in some sort of activity. I hope to see all on the 14th of February at 7:00 pm at the next club meeting at the South Side Library at the Abilene Mall. 73,
