The Ohio Caverns

Dear Ohio Caverns:

On behalf of the Champaign Logan Amateur Radio Club, I want to thank you again for the use of your site for our Field Day radio exercise.  This exercise takes place the last full weekend of June each year.  It is a contest to set up (simulating an emergency situation) and make contact with as many “other” call signs as possible.  Our call sign is W8FTV and this year W8FTV contacted at least one station in all but seven of our United States missing only Oregon, New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana and North Dakota.  We also made contact with a Puerto Rican station as well as eight Canadian stations one of which was a ship at sea!

As always we want to thank you for your very accommodating facilities.  We need to offer an extra “thank you” for your effort letting us know we inadvertently left a section of cable lying in the yard so we could retrieve it.  We look forward to conducting Field Day from your site again in 2019 if possible and if there is anything you want us to change or if any you know want information on how to obtain a license, visit us on Facebook (look for Champaign Logan Amateur Radio club or W8FTV) or let me know and I’ll carry the concern to the group! 

Thanks again from all of us!

Al Hockley N8HDR

2018 Young’s Dairy Charity Bike Tour asks for your help.

It’s time again to seek volunteers for the Young’s Dairy Charity Bike Tour that will be on Saturday, July 14th and Sunday, July 15th.  The two day tour covers several  Ohio counties, comprising up to 100 miles, so a large number of ham radio operators will be needed.  The tour starts at 8:00 AM on Saturday from Young’s Dairy, which is on Highway 68, north of Yellow Springs, and extends north to Ada Ohio.  There is a bike path route for a portion of the return trip on day 2.  We are not responsible for tracking riders on the bike path, but we may cover a few key intersections.

For any operators wanting to stay overnight in the dorm rooms at Ohio Northern University in Ada, where the riders stay, I WILL NEED TO KNOW THAT ASAP.  For those not familiar with that option, I highly recommend it.  The dorms are extremely nice and the organizers graciously provide them to at no cost to us.  However, the organizers do have to pay for the rooms, and this is a charity event, so donations to offset the cost of the rooms are appreciated if you can manage it.  Dinner and breakfast are included if you stay overnight, and these guys have an absolute blast up there.  It’s really a great and entertaining time.

We are in need of very many operators for this event. Please consider coming out, if only for a portion of the day.

EVENT FREQUENCIES
For the southern part of the course we will be using the Springfield 145.310 Repeater with a 82.5hz tone.
For the northern part of the course we will be using the Bellefontaine 147.000 Repeater with 100hz tone.

Please contact Mike Crawford kc8gle@earthlink.net, if you have any questions or are interested in volunteering for this event.

Echolink on 147.000!

The Main club repeater is once again connected to echo link!

Thanks to Tom W8WTD the W8FTV 147.000 repeater is now connected to Echo link. Tom has taken control of the club echo link equipment. Tom has remote control of this link should any issues arise. He will need some help with the audio levels but it sounds good to him now.

To use the node you need to search for W8WTD-L with the notation Bellefontaine link. (update)The node is set up internet to repeater. You cannot connect by DTMF to other repeaters through this node. You can how ever connect with your smart phone or computer while away from the coverage area. Also in an emergency where we might need to link two Echolink-enabled repeaters,  A control operator could take care of it in a couple of minutes, should the need ever arise.

We are using Toms call and link because we have had some issues with the club callsign on echolink and are unable to access it.

Watch for further updates on the use of this node and share with your friends.

Thank You Tom for all your work on this!

 

Memorial Day Parade in Bellefontaine

Once again The CLARC is assisting in the Memorial Day parade. This year it is Monday May 28th.  The club conducts the parade line up and audio equipment at the cemetery after the parade.

If you are interested in helping out please meet with Gary N8GJK at the American Legion on Colton Ave at 0800. Please bring your HT.  Please use the contact form for any questions.

 

  • for some reason I am currently unable to get the upcoming events to show the correct date for Memorial Day.

Bikes For Tikes

This appears to be an event that is affiliated with both ARES & EMA groups through multiple areas.

The map ( as far as I can determine) is missing two pages because it appears to me to only cover the day one route.  The word document has (I believe) some errors in it but if read, one can “get the gist” of the route.  I’ve made inquiries to obtain more complete information.  I don’t yet have any updates.  We can discuss the event at the April Meeting on the 5th.

At this time We do not have a date in any of the current information.
