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 website, Facebook and 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!

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.
