June will be a busy month.  We have three Testing sessions scheduled to coincide with several special events.  June 2nd will be a special testing session at the Fulton County Hamfest in Tedrow (just north of Wauseon) at 10:30am.  June 23rd will be a special Field Day session, also in Tedrow at 10:30am.  We are not holding a session on the 30th this month.

A summary of the FCARC meeting notes for May 21st, 2012:

The meeting was called to order at 7:40pm with 19 members in attendance. Introduction were made and minutes from the previous meeting as well as the treasurer's report were read and accepted.

Education Commitee: The VE Team held testing at the Archbold Police Station on April 28th with one person in attendance who upgraded from Technician to General.  Dave Nelson reports there will be a testing session on May 26th at the Archbold Police Station again, walk-ins are welcome.  Dave also reported that we will have a special testing session at the FCARC Hamfest in Tedrow in June 2nd at 10:30am.  All normal rules and requirements apply.  See the Fulton County Radio Club website http://www.k8bxq.org/ for further details.  Also a special thanks go out to Dave Nelson who took time out of his day to assist the Seneca County Radio Club with their VE Testing on May 19th.  The Dayton Hamfest left them a bit shorthanded and Dave answered their call for help and represented the Fulton County crew exceptionally.

There are not enough thanks to give to Tom Servos (KC8UOM) for his efforts in spearheading the club Pneumatic Mast project.  The amount of time and effort he has put into creating this for Field Day 2012 is greatly appreciated.  Here are some pictures he recently sent out from the build.  Click on the images for larger versions.
