Description:

 Sundancer Solar Radio Club is named for the local solar car race team which has won every national competition entered over many years.  The club traces it's beginnings to the solar car's first run across the Australian outback, during which they relied upon amateur radio for communication.  SSRC helped the team with training and licensing for that great adventure.  The race team has transitioned to other means of communication, but the radio club has continued with mentoring, training, and VE testing.  The club maintains a repeater in Houston, MS (146.895, T141.3) and oversees equipment to support various emergency services in the area.  SSRC sponsors a gathering of area amateurs each April and September in conjunction with the Flywheel Festival (old engines and tractors).  The club welcomes all interested persons and delights in assisting with training and licensing.  VE testing is available at each club meeting and special sessions can be arranged to meet special needs.
