Net Night at the Zoom Site- Thursday Jan 27th

How the heck do you do Net Night at the Clubsite on ZOOM? I don’t know, but I’ll figure out something before the January 27th PCARS Net! Let’s just say, you’ll have one more option for checking in – ZOOM!
Yes, we will be taking the regular check-ins via RF and Echolink. But, now we can watch you do it on ZOOM at the same time! And if you want to hang around on ZOOM after the net is over, you can do that too. I’ll keep the ZOOM going until at least 10:00PM.
Now, we’ve all seen funny, sunny and out of this world backgrounds on Zoom. Where’s the sport in that? Let me suggest: Hawaiian shirts? Poodle skirts? Pajamas? PCARS garb? If you come up with something to wear that impresses ME (All decisions by the judge are final, accurate and unbiased) there could be a prize involved! What would Chuck Barris do?
We’ll be looking for YOU on the net! Be there. Thursday Janurary 27 – 8:00PM.
146.895 Mhz, 118.8 buzzz…… Echolink at K8BF-L. And now on ZOOM!
Thomas Sly is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

February 5th VE Test Session Cancelled

The VE Test session originally scheduled for Saturday, February 5th is being canceled.
Seems the Covid variant is making its rounds in PCARS and elsewhere.
So, to be on the safe side for all of the PCARS VE Team and others.
We’ll try again in April.
Also, No one had contacted me via email about having a test in February.
Hang in there – this too shall pass.

Portable Ops SIG on Tuesday – ZOOM ONLY

This month’s Portable Ops SIG will be via Zoom only. I’ve been sick for the last week and am not ready to do the face to face thing yet.

We’re talking about doing a Saturday Field Trip to activate a local park once spring is on the horizon. We’ll be kicking this around this month, and entertaining questions, and show & tell.

Did you get any new gear for Christmas? Let’s hear about it.

We’ll be meeting at 7PM via Zoom. Here’s the link:
