June 2015 SPARKS

PDF

TARS radio operators in 24-hour national off-grid field exercise at USI June 27th-28th.

Amateur Radio Operators of the Tri-State Amateur Radio Society are participating in a 24-hour, off-the-grid national field exercise to set up and operate emergency communication systems using using digital and satellite capabilities, voice communications, radio and even Web hybrid systems along with historic Morse code showing ham radio is at the forefront of technology. Ham radio developed the original texting technologies so popular today.

Get On the Air (GOTA) operations are set up for the public. If you have any interest we will have someone available to help you Get On The Air and join in the fun.

TARS FD Location Map

During fires, earthquakes, tornado and other crises, Amateur Radio is often the only way by which people communicate. Amateur Radio operators are often the first to provide critical early information and observations to responders in crisis situations when cell phone towers are out and power lines down cut Internet access. This exercise provides a chance for the public to meet and talk with the hams and see for themselves what the Amateur Radio Service is about.

May 2 INQP and Picnic

PDF

Life gets busy so here's a reminder about this Saturday (May 2nd). Join us for the TARS Picnic and Indiana QSO party. We'll be at Wesselman's Park at the first shelter you come to as you go into the park (Where we had Winter Field Day). We'll set up antennas starting about 930am.

The club will provide Fried Chicken from Gabe's Deli, soft drinks and water, plates cups and napkins. Bring a side dish if you can to share with the group.We'll plan to eat around noon.

We hope to have 2 stations for the INQP and we'll probably operate the stations at Wesselman's until about 4pm. But even if you can't come you can still enjoy the contest and have your points added to TARS total. Just send us a copy of your log when you're done and we'll submit it. The contest runs from 1600 UTC (11am local) on Saturday until 11pm that night. If you want to operate some after you go home from the picnic feel free to do so. Handwritten logs will be typed in and forwarded, or if you use N3FJP logging software download their INQP logging software and send me a copy of your log in Cabrillo format.

Your log will need to state your callsign, names and callsigns of all operators, and what Indiana county you operated your station from. Here's the exchange for the QSO party: Callsign, State, province or country, RST received and RST sent. If the contact is from Indiana we also need their county. If they are operating on the border of 2 counties or they are a rover and switch counties, count them separately for each new county.

This really is a fun contest. Hope you can join in.

Questions? Just ask.
