Ham in Gunnison needs some antenna help

A request has been made for some assistance for Clair Veech KE0MVO, age 80 that lives in Gunnison to move a Butternut HF6V antenna from its current ground mounted location to atop his metal roof.

Since turning 80 he feels it best to stay off roofs. The roof is a metal roof with a 8 12 pitch to it. He’s offered to throw a few burgers on the grill for volunteers to survey and assist with the move.

If you are interested in helping, please let me know so I can give you his email address to contact him directly.

73s,
Kathy

Hardrock 100 run cancelled for 2019

I just received word that the HRH has been cancelled for 2019 due to “historic snowfall, avalanches, avalanche debris, an inability to reach certain aid stations and uncertain conditions on more than 40% of the course.”

This has been a popular event for club members to support as we have traditionally provided race communications for the more northerly aid stations. I’ve done it several times and have always enjoyed it.

We also moved the July meeting to a week earlier to accommodate the race; the board will let us know if that gets changed back to the normal 3rd Friday.

President’s report 6-9-19

Good evening to everyone on the net.

Well this week I tried my hand at posting pictures from the Tail Gate and Museum Ship weekend to our website. I received kudos from the webmaster, so I guess I did it right!

Last Sunday I mentioned I would be posting info regarding the TRR event June 15th. I was finally able to get the info so I just uploaded it to the web.

Looking ahead our meeting is Friday the 21st at the Olathe Community Center and Field Day is Saturday 22nd thru Sunday 23rd at Sunset Mesa in Montrose. Hope to see everyone there!

That’s all I have for now.  KK6RNV.

President’s report 6-2-19

Good evening to everyone on the net.

The club was very busy this weekend; we had Museum Ship Weekend in Montrose and our annual Tail Gate swap meet in Delta this weekend. Hopefully we will have summary reports from Lew K0LMF for Museum Ship and Steve KI 0KY for Tail Gate. I want to thank everyone that came out to support those events. We met a gentleman that is opening a chapter of TRR for veterans and their families. Their event is next weekend the 15th. I will post the info on the website for those that are interested.

Looking ahead our meeting is Friday the 21st at the Olathe Community Center and Field Day is the next day Saturday 22nd thru Sunday 23rd at Sunset Mesa in Montrose. Hope to see you there!

That’s all I have for now.  KK6RNV .

Good evening to everyone on the net.

Friday was our club meeting and we had 17 people in attendance including; 3 guests or hams that haven’t been around for a while. Our guests were, Jacob who’s working on his license, Jim KB0EMJ and Ralph KE0VSW.

The meeting was jam packed with information. In addition to our regular committee reports, we had info on Black Canyon Ascent, Museum Ship Weekend, Tail Gate and summary overview of CCARC meeting.

I’d also like to thank Joel KE0RHY who provided some really yummy homemade brownies, lemon bars and donuts!

Our treasurer John KB0RUD reported the club has purchased the combo prize for the tailgate prize which will be Alinco dual-band DMR HT and a complete, ready to go DMR, DStar, Fusion, etc hotspot.

For our program Royce AA0JD went over details for Field Day which will be June 22-23, since our next meeting will be the Friday before.

Steve KI0KY went over some changes to Net Control procedures that the club will be implementing, that include; 3 second pauses to allow for anyone with emergency traffic. Break/break to be instituted for emergency traffic that needs to be passed and for non-emergencies please wait until net control calls for any additional stations to call in.
I’d like to encourage anyone that is interested to try their hand at being net control. Please let Dick KD0ESZ know so he can include you on the list.
