President’s Message

Hello CVARC members, families, and guests!

Ed Zimmermann-N6XEW

It’s June and you know what that means? That’s right, June bugs!  Have not seen any yet, but I know they are out there. And speaking of out there, Field Day 2022 is upon us! Friday June 24th is setup, Saturday June 25th and Sunday the 26th are the operating days. Come out to the Lake Sherwood field and join us. With solar number on the way up, propagation should make for a very memorable Field Day. If you would like to volunteer or participate, please contact Martin-AJ6CL. Check the CVARC.ORG website for more information.

Our June 16th CVARC General Meeting Topic will be Emergency Preparedness. We will have Bill Boyd, Emergency Manager with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services discusses vital information in a year of unprecedented wildfire risk:  emergency preparedness and communication in Ventura County.  

CVARC held a VE session on Sunday June 12th. Where four people became new hams and seven upgraded their current licenses.  Congratulations to all!

Newbie Net:  Our Newbie Net meets (on the BOZO Repeater, 147.885, -127.3) every Sunday night at 7 p.m. The Newbie Net is an opportunity for newer hams to get on the air and gain experience and confidence. More experienced hams or “Elmers” regularly check in and are available to answer questions and offer advice.  All are welcome.  We are always looking for net controllers. #hamharder.  It is great practice and fun to be net control, so please sign up with Todd-KD6RCM at kd6rcm@arrl.net.

Hope to hear you on the air!

73,
