ARRL Sacramento Valley Nets - May 18

On Thursday, May 18, 2023, ARRL Sacramento Valley Section 
will hold a Section Wide Net, first on the WD6AXM FM repeater 
atop Sutter Buttes near Yuba City on 146.085 MHz, plus 600 kHz 
offset, tone 127.3 Hz. Please wait for the call to the 2 meter 
ARRL Section Net after the 7 pm Yuba-Sutter ARES net has 
closed, usually around 7:20-7:30 pm Pacific Time.

For those who are unable to access the WD6AXM repeater, our HF 
net will commence IMMEDIATELY after the VHF SV net signs off, 
on the 80 meter frequency of 3880 kHz LSB +/- 3 kHz.  Those 
who check in to the VHF net are encouraged to join the HF net 
if they are able.  

Important:  If you do not hear net control over your radio, 
please check in anyway and listen for net control to 
acknowledge you via the Half Moon Bay WebSDR or the Northern 
Utah WebSDR.

All ARRL members, club presidents, Section appointees, and all
appropriately licensed radio amateurs are encouraged to join 
us for the ARRL Sacramento Valley Section nets. Section News 
and items of regional and national interest to all radio 
amateurs will be the topics of discussion.

ARRL Sacramento Valley Section Wide Nets are conducted only on 
the third Thursday of such months as announced via official 
bulletin and on

"On behalf of the DOD and US Northern Command, I want to express my thanks to the more than 1,400 amateur radio operators who were a part of the SET-DOD interop exercise this past Oct/Nov.  Your willingness to support this effort is indicative of the amateur radio spirit of communications and interoperability towards achieving a common goal of providing communications during a time of need.  Thank you and well done.

To all of you I want to say a big Thank You.  Without your help we(Army and Air Force MARS) would not have been able to complete the assigned mission of delivering the Message from United States Northern Command to United States Amateur Radio Operators, Simulated Emergency Tests(SET).   Please pass this Thank You on the Amateur Radio Operators who were there in the background supporting you in the SET’S  coordinating with the MARS Operators who passed the Message to them because without them the Mission would not have been completed.



Loomis Hamfest Saturday, March 18, 2023

First and foremost, a big thank you to all who volunteered to help make Hamfest 2023 a HUGE success. Thanks to some help from Mother Nature and the many of you who came to attend and be part of the day’s events — it was one of the BEST turnouts in club history!

A big thank you to Orion (AI6JB) for his hard work organizing the event. Also an honorable mention and big thanks to Jeff (KM6RGO), Brian (AI6US), and Aaron (W1ATB) for some generous donations of prizes as well.  There were MANY others that made the event a HUGE success (too many to mention) — hopefully, you know who you are.
