VE Testing Sessions On Hold

We at the FCARC are saddened to report that our VE Liaison for the past several years has passed away.  Tom Servoss (KC8UOM) was an incredible support of the club and the hobby in general.  While we sort out the duties and coordinate with the ARRL, test sessions will be considered to be on hold.

Assistance Needed Saturday Jan 23

The county EMA has requested assistance from the FCARC members for a COVID vaccination clinic event being held this Saturday at the Fulton County Fairgrounds from 10am to 5pm. We are asked to assist local officials with traffic to keep things moving as smoothly as possible. Remember to bring a charged spare HT and plan on dressing warm. We do have spare equipment and PPE gear if needed. We need to meet at the fairgrounds by 9am near the Jr Fair Building. 

Last, please RSVP as soon as possible to Bryan Patterson, kb8elg at hotmail.com / 419-250-6694, so the EMA knows how many volunteers to expect.
