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
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...

Membership Dues New &Updated
Annual club membership is now good for 365 days from signup. You will receive a notice just prior to club membership expiration. Paypal and Stripe are now the two options to pay dues.
NEW Personal Club Email Addresses - as of 9/17/2019
Personal Club emails addresses are now re-activated. Everyone received a forwarding email address a few weeks ago. New members will receive one when joining the GCARC and will be active for the duration of your club membership. Again, if you no longer wish to use an email address that was previously issued to you or if you just do not want one, it can be deleted at your request.
Club Net Script
The GCARC Club net script is found at two places on this website. First, under the top menu item - GCARC, then ABOUT GCARC and Officers, and also under the top menu item - OTHER CLUB EVENTS, then GCARC Radio Net (Script). The net script will be updated by the next GCARC net on February 3rd.
