President

Greetings to all club members, Friends of the KCRA and fellow Ham’s!

The KCRA’s annual Holiday Party is next month, and will be a Sunday Brunch in the Historic Fort Hamilton.  All Members and Friends are invited to our festivities.  It will be Sunday, December 16th at 11:30 am. It's $25 per person.  For more information and to RSVP, please use the clubs event registration system on the website.

We would like to congratulate Mike, N2YBB for being elected as the new Hudson Division Director!   The voting turnout for Mike was outstanding!   He was declared the winner, with 836 votes.

Mike, N2BMU and Gary, KB2BSL will conduct a presentation on solar power at the November 20th KCRA meeting.  The demonstration will include how to solder Power-Film solar cells as well as monocrystalline solar cells. We will also show you how to connect these to a solar charge controller and a battery.  The first 15 attendees will receive a CD containing various videos and documents on making your own solar panels.

The November meeting is also when we formally elect the nominees for the clubs Board of Directors for 2013.

We will also be discussing what the members did to in preparations for Hurricane Sandy.  Gary tried running a freezer with Gel-Cells… and also what not to do...  Mike had lots of LED’s, I had batteries, Laptop, AM/FM radio and HAM radio ready… but forgot one thing…

You will have to come to our next club meeting to hear the discussions on being prepared in the event of an emergency!

Attention, if you are going to HAM Radio University, we are looking for people to help with our table, and ride share!  This is a great learning event to help new HAM’s with the hobby, and teach old HAM’s new tricks!

73’de KB2PSI, Vinny
