...has provided the club with a newer  (10/19/21) annotated list of area repeaters giving us more current and detailed info than you will see in The Repeater Book; click HERE to check out the .pdf file. 

Digital Mobile Radio, DMR.  It is different, very different.  In light of that ACARC is adding a new set of Menu pages on the left concerning that very subject. You will soon find information on the system itself, the radios of choice, and links to equipment, help, training, and station frequencies.  Under construction 5/14/22, so stand by as it builds.

At the Hamfest,  I see that at 3:30 Sat, there is going to be this thing called a Bunny Hunt, what the heck is that anyway and what do need to do?

Well, a Bunny, or Rabbit, or Fox Hunt (which are essentially the same thing) is this.  Outside, somewhere in a field (or tree or rock, or who-knows?) very hidden, will be a transmitter sending a signal on the 2 meter band.  (You will be given the frequency at the hunt's beginning)

 

Your task will be to use your radio to home in on it, find it, and reveal its location before anyone else does.  Easy?

Not so much.

What do you have to do?

Bring your 2M portable radio to the Hamfest.  

There will be lessons given on just how to win the prizes, then it is up to YOU.  

 

There will be more than one Hunt.  

IF you are able to find one of the bunnies before anyone else, you will be awarded one of these fuzzy trophies you see below, - - - along with an envelope containing a really nice prize.  Really Nice.

MUCH, much more technical info and links to other resources seen HERE.
Make a special Tape Measure Antenna, see HERE.


As you get physically closer to the elusive Bunny, your directional antenna will become more unreliable as the signal strength gets stronger and less directional. 
UNLESS
You look into putting an Attenuator into the system.  
Click on 3rd Planet Solar or read the QR code below to see a kit to put together and use that will overcome the problem..

Club Dues for 2022
No increase this year, $15 plus only $6 for each additional family member.
 Mail your check to:
ACARC, PO Box 5283, Wenatchee WA 98807

One of the most regular and well-attended events that ACARC sponsors is our Tuesday night Net Check-ins.  Just to give you an idea of the activity this year, see the spreadsheet below.  A greater number of people are involved here than in our Club Meetings - or just about anything else we do. 
Weekly updates are especially important during these times of change and instantaneous re-arrangement. 
 
You are welcome to join in the Net formally, or perhaps just listen in to the announcements on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm - if nothing else just so you can keep up to speed on events happening - or not happening - or dates changing.
GUESTS are ALWAYS welcome.
