Monthly Meeting

Out of an abundance of caution we are going to return to Zoom meetings for our monthly club meetings. With the recent rise in numbers I think this is the best thing to do. Hopefully, we can go back to in person meetings soon. Thank you for understanding.

We are moving back to In-Person meetings

We have some GREAT NEWS….

Starting on Monday July 19th, we will be returning to in person meetings at our normal location and time.  For those that have joined us since the pandemic started, we meet at Independent Hose Company number 1 in the events hall at the back.  The Address is 301 Baughmans Lane, Frederick, MD.  The meeting starts at 7pm.  You see a map and directions on our about page here: http://frederickarc.org/about/

We have not been able to meet since last February, it will be great to be able to meeting in person once again instead of over Zoom.  Zoom was great, but it is not the same as meeting in person.  I look forward to seeing everyone in person.

Sorry for the animated GIF.  Just thought it represented the occasion well.

Tour De Frederick is a go for 2021

We have received some good news from the organizers of the Tour De Frederick.  This year it is a go for an in person event.  It will be held at the Walkersville Fire House again.  The date is Saturday August 7th.  I will be sending out an email shortly looking for people to volunteer again this year.  I am waiting for the details on the number of SAGs and rest stops so I can put out a request with the right information.

If you like helping with these events be sure to add it to your calendar now.

Field Day 2021 at Remsburg Park – What a Success

The Frederick Amateur Radio Club’s 2021 Field Day was a great success.  We had a great turnout of both hams and just people curious what we were doing.  A few of the people that stopped by hung around for a long time.  We also got to meet some new hams in the area and got to know them better.  Because of the Pandemic, we have not been able to get together in person for a while and it was nice to be able to interact with other hams in person.

It was also nice to be able to have new hams that are just technicians be able to see what operating in HF was like.  I hope this encourages them to take the next step to General and maybe even onto Extra.

I have generated the final numbers yet but we had around 230 contacts, almost twice as many as our last field day in 2018.  All 3 radios were in use almost the entire time.  There was one that sat idle for a little bit very early in the morning for a few hours but the other 2 in the trailer were in use almost the entire time thanks to the overnight team of Sandy, Steve and Dave.

Also, as you can see in the pictures, this location was wonderful.  It was a little hot but there was a nice breeze on Saturday.  Sunday was even warmer and more humid.  But Remsburg Park in Middletown is a great place to have a Field Day.

I will be uploading some video soon as well, the photo album software does not like videos so I will have to insert it later.
