 THE GRAYSON COUNTY AMATEUR RADIO CLUB  WISHES ALL A VERY

HAPPY NEW YEAR  

WITH THE ELECTION OF THE NEW OFFICERS, THE FUTURE SUCCESS OF THE  GRAYSON COUNTY CLUB LOOKS GREAT. MY WISH FOR 2020 WOULD BE THAT THE AMATEURS IN GRAYSON COUNTY GET TOGETHER AND SUPPORT THE CLUB BY JOINING AND PARTICIPATING. IT CAN BE A VERY FUN YEAR IF ALL OF US COULD ENJOY THIS HOBBY AS A GROUP.. 73..JAMES - KW5CW   

 A Special Thanks go out to all who did attend the GCARC Christmas party...     

Now lets ride this year out and welcome in 2020 and the

newly elected officers of the GCARC

President - Glen Davis - KG5REK, Vice-President - Ron Witheringon - WX5A 

Secretary - Rickey Jessen - KG5FDT, Treasurer - Lee Sly - N5SLY

Director at Large - John Love- WD5IKX 

These officers have accepted the task of promoting the success of the club in the year of 2020. All members and prospective members should recognize that the GCARC will go on and hopefully be an even better club in the future. With all of the officer efforts, success can only be accomplished with the support of the membership. I wish all of the new officers the best of luck in 2020 .... James - KW5CW

 KW5CW CW CLASS - UPDATE

Online courses are scheduled to be available in January 2020. All members and non-members of the club interested in taking online courses provided by James - KW5CW, please send a note to James (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Three classes will be available...

Basic, Intermediate and Advanced

These classes will take the place of the courses previously designed for classroom learning. The advantage for online classes would be the ability to study the courses in your home at your pleasure, and not have to schedule time to attend classroom lecture.

GCARC DMR Talk Group UPDATE updated 9/17/2019

 

The GCARC now presently has its own DMR Talk Group (TG) on the Thank God it’s Friday (TGIF) DMR Network. It has been operational now for several months, however there is very little activity on the talkgroup. As the saying goes 'use it, or loose it'. Let's see if we can keep it active. Maybe a scheduled club net can be held weekly or monthly on the GCARC DMR Talkgroup. Let's discuss this again at the upcoming meeting tonight.

The information on the new DMR talk group can be found by clicking on the link immediately below...
