Description:

Greetings to all Amateur Radio Operators.  This is Marc, N4UFP with the April 2016 South Carolina Section Manager’s Report.  Please remember that the SC Section website can be found at: www.arrlsc.org/ where my full SM report will be listed as well as up-to-the-date information on Amateur Radio in South Carolina.

The big news this week is the 2016 Dayton Hamvention, but there is also a hamfest happening this weekend in SC:

Event: Trident Amateur Radio Club Annual Tailgate Party
Time: 5 / 21 / 2016 from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
Place: Goose Creek Masonic Lodge 401, 145 St. James Ave., Goose Creek (across from BiLo)
Website: http://www.tridenthams.org/
Other information: Repeater talk-in is 147.270+ T123.0
Breakfast will be served in the lodge from 7:30-10:30 AM for an additional cost
There will also be a carwash put on in the morning by the Rainbow Girls
No Admission Fee to enter tailgate event.
There is a $5.00 charge per table/tailgate to sell at the event
Contact: Ron Davis K4TCP Ron.Davis@gmx.us

I will be in Dayton this weekend, but I encourage hams who are not making the trek to Dayton to visit the TARC Tailgate Party.

The Section leadership has finalized its plans for Field Day visits. Technical Coordinator Brad Humphries, AE4VJ, and Assistant Section Manager Bob Bacharach, WA2EMF, will visit FD sites along the I-77 corridor. Director Jim Boehner, N2ZZ, will swing through the Low Country and into eastern NC, and Assistant Section Manager Morgan Williams, KB4GFJ, and I will work the I-85 corridor. In years past, I have started my trip in Rock Hill, and worked my way west along I-85. This year we will start in Anderson and work our way east, so I don’t have a long return trip at dawn on Sunday. All of us look forward to visiting your FD operations and having the chance to meet your team.

That’s it for this month. Now it’s time for the numbers ..
