Around The Section   

Due to propagation during the winter months and changing back to standard time we are moving the evening section nets up one hour effective Sunday November 7. Weather net will begin at 5 PM followed by Sideband Net at 5:30 and at the conclusion of the Sideband Net the Weather Net may reconvene and pick up additional stations. Frequency remains the same, 3920 KHz or up to accommodate neighbors. I anticipate changing back in March.

Johnson County Radio Amateurs Club Annual Auction is Saturday October 23 at Marshall Ensor Museum and Park. 18995 W. 183rd St, Olathe.  About 5 miles North of Spring Hill East of US169.  Bidding starts at 11AM and half the proceeds go to the museum.


Simulated Emergency Test  is October  2nd and 3rd.                                               We will use our regular Sideband Net sessions for this.                 

Johnson County RAC sponsored a Parks On The Airweekend in May with more than 20 operators activating over 15 locations.

Jayhawk ARC is celebrating 70 years. The club became affiliated with ARRL the year they formed.

Kansas Slow Speed Net is held Mondays at 7:30 on (or near) 3547 KHz. Our host is WDØESF- Mike in Medicine Lodge.
