Breakfast at Mel’s Diner
Join us for the Club Breakfast on Saturday, May 30th at 9 am. Note the time change due to the later opening of the restaurant. We will be seated in small groups at separate tables in the group area to cooperate with the restaurant’s social distancing requirements. Looking forward to seeing you in person! Please practice safe interactions and follow the recommended social distancing guidelines. Be prepared to have a great time with friends! Remember to wear pants, this isn’t a Zoom meeting!
Get ready for Field Day, June 27-28. While we will be operating individually, the SFARC club will be offering prizes for your set-ups, contacts and posted photos. Are you going to operate from a local park, in your back yard or at the home station? Let us know where you will be operating from. During the event, please be sure to visit the 24 hour ZOOM online video room and the 26 hour net on the W6EK 2 meter repeater for station scoring, check-ins and chatting with friends. What is Field Day?
W6EK 2 Meter Nets
Check in for the latest club news and take a guess on the trivia question each Thursday evening at 7:30 pm for the Club Net, first and third Wednesdays for the Elmer Tech Net and every morning from 7:30 am until 10 am for the Coffee Break Net. Great to have so many folks joining in on the fun!
Nets and Meeting Updates
With many club events and meetings being postponed, canceled and modified due to the Covid-19 orders, Sierra Foothills ARC members are connecting with each other via radio nets and the online meetings. The 2 meter and 70 cm repeaters have been very busy with traffic throughout the day. During this time of social distancing and sheltering in place, drop in, say hello and keep in touch with your SFARC friends!
