January Meeting Notice

A quick reminder we will be holding our regular club meeting on January 17, 2011.  The location is changing for 2011, we will no longer be at the Emergency Operations Center in Wauseon.  Our new meeting location will be at the old Board of Education building (also known as the old Nurses Quarters) near the intersection of S. Shoop Ave and Superior (602 S. Shoop Ave, close to the Fulton County Health Center) in Wauseon.  The meeting time is still 7:30pm.  This is the club officer election meeting, so please be sure to stop out.  This will also be Ed Roths last meeting as club president as he is stepping down from the position and not putting his name in the hat for re-election.  Thanks go to Ed for the years of service he put in as club president.

Pictures from the 2010 Club Christmas Dinner held at The Barn restuarant in Archbold, OH.  We had a really good turnout for great food and fun conversation. 

Thanks to KB8ELG - Bryan's efforts in securing a new meeting location for the club.  We will be meeting at the old Board of Education building, also known as the old Nurse's Quarters, at the corner of Shoop Ave (St Rt 108) and Superior in Wauseon (just north of the hospital on the west side of Shoop).  We'll get an exact address before the next meeting and post it to all outlets.  A big plus is that it's on the ground floor.  Thanks again to KB8ELG and to the Fulton County officials who helped in finding us a location.

The club Field Day page has been updated with our operating statistics for 2010.  The FCARC (K8BXQ) finished with a score of 3,434 with 885 contacts. That allowed us to finish 18th out of all divisions in category 6A, and 2nd in Ohio in category 6A.

The F.C.A.R.C. is a group of amateur radio operators located in Northwest Ohio. Our goal is to create excitement about the hobby, serve the communities of Fulton County, and have a little fun while we are at it.

Amateur radio operators enjoy personal (and often worldwide) wireless communications with each other and are able to support their communities with emergency and disaster communications if necessary, while increasing their personal knowledge of electronics and radio theory. An estimated six million people throughout the world are regularly involved with amateur radio.

Often unsung, amateur radio operators regularly assist in emergency situations. Hurricane Katrina was no exception. Operators of amateur, or ham, radio were instrumental in helping residents in the hardest hit areas, including saving stranded flood victims in Louisiana and Mississippi.
