March 10, 2020
The SFARC board has reviewed Placer County's COVID-19 advisory dated 3/10/2020, our ability to provide safe venues based on the CDPH guidance and the potential for impact to our at risk membership and the community. Based on the Placer County advisory, the fluidity of the evolving situation and out of an abundance of caution, the board has voted to modify our upcoming meeting and event schedule as follows:
March 13, 2020 - Board Meeting will meet via teleconference
March 13, 2020 - General Club Meeting is canceled
March 14, 2020 - Digital Workshop is postponed - Reschedule date to be announced
March 21, 2020 - SFARC Hamfest is postponed - Reschedule date to be announced
April 4th, 2020 - FCC Exam session is canceled
SFARC apologizes for any inconvenience that these schedule changes may cause, but the health of our membership, visitors and community is our primary concern.
We will make every effort to notify members and attendees of the schedule changes. Be sure to check back on the W6EK.org website, Facebook and Groups.io for additional information.
Thank you for your understanding as these difficult decisions are made. If you have any questions, comments, concerns or need for assistance, please contact me or any board member.
Please folks, be safe!

February Club Breakfast
|April 10th||The Other Shoe: D-Star, DMR, and the others|
This will be a follow-on to Bob K6UDA's February presentation on the Yaesu Fusion system, and the test we are running on the club's UHF repeater. In his talk, Greg KO6TH will be covering the other modes that Bob only mentioned, focusing on D-Star and DMR, what they are, how they work, and how all this stuff sort of fits together.
|Most presentations are recorded and posted on SFARC's YouTube channel.
