AROUND THE SECTION

Johnson County RAC annual auction and outing is October 24-25th at Ensor Museum and Farmsite 18995  West 183rd St, Olathe. The experience kicks off Friday with a low key, relaxing campfire and time for stories. Might be a bunny hunt and  picture show on the side of the barn as well.  Saturday morning the bidding gets underway at 11:00.  Tours of the museum will continue after the auction concludes.  You'll want to enjoy lunch while there too !

Net control moves: WD0BWE-Don has picked up the Wednesday morning Weather net and KC0QT-Tom has moved into the Tuesday Sideband net.

The Western Kansas 160 Net never really went away but now the noise is low enough that we can hear each other better.
1960KHz at 8PM Mountain time, NCS KD0EZS is at Tribune.

US Representatives Lynn Jenkins and Kevin Yoder have signed on as co-sponsors of HR4969 The Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2014. This bill still needs our support. It is similar to PRB-1 and calls for reasonable accommodation for Amateur Radio Service antennas where restrictions would preclude them.

Johnson County RAC held an HF shoot out for a meeting program. Cal-KC0CL and Herb-NZ0F tied for first place.
