October – Club Meeting
Please join the Santa Clarita Amateur Radio Club (SCARC) on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, except for the December holiday dinner. Our next meeting will be Wednesday, October 18th at 7:00 pm. The Club Officers/Board meeting will start at 6:30 pm.
Have you heard about SOTA – Summits on the Air? SOTA is an activity where some Amateur operators hike to the top of hills and mountains and broadcast for contacts, while other Amateurs try to make those contacts from their base or remote stations. Points and awards are provided for both activators and chasers, and it’s a fun way to get on the air. Richard, WA6KYR, will be presenting more information on SOTA at this month’s meeting of the SCARC, so plan on attending to learn more about this activity.
Both the Board meeting and monthly club meeting are located at the Santa Clarita Senior Center, near Old Downtown Newhall, 22900 Market St. Santa Clarita, CA 91321-3609. We meet in the conference room on the West side of the facility. Attendance is Free! Be sure to contact SCARC President Chris Edwards KK6MLY, for more information. Email is the best way to get a quick response! See the BOD page for email addresses.
Amateur Radio License Exams
Sessions are held on the 3rd Saturday of every odd month (January, March, May, July, September, and November) at the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center – Room A6. If you wish to take a test, you need to contact Ron Klein, K6VPV by telephone (661) 259-0948 at least five days before the testing session. This is so that we can have the necessary forms and testing materials ready for you and so that you can be informed on what you need to bring with you.
