TARC Needs Your Support!

We have been asked to participate in the Boy Scouts Camporee happening the weekend of 10/2. We are in need of at least 2 volunteers to spend the day out at John Zinc from at least 10am-4:30 pm. Our primary objective will be to introduce scouters to Ham radio and get them on the air! Lunch will be provided by the BSA. Two weeks from then we are also looking for some help on 10/16 for another similar scouting event that is a national event called Jamboree on the Air. This event will have a different twist in the hopes […]

QST….QST….QST

It’s unfortunate that I have to report that the new TARC trailer was broken into recently and a number of items were stolen. Included were the two ICOM 7300’s. The serial numbers are 020333054 and 02033463. Also stolen were 3 heavy duty 50′ power cords, coax and wire used for antennas, some tools and other small items. If you are a Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist watcher or you attend any flea markets or ham tailgates, please keep an eye out for these radios. Thanks. Mark WA5MA
