Antietam Radio Association's Response to the COVID-19 Crisis

Part II

UPDATE: In response to concerns from several members that there are members who are unable to hit the repeater form their home QTH we are trying something a little different today. We understand that while not illegal, leaving the house to drive to a nearby location where hitting the repeater is possible may not be the best solution under these circumstances, so Karin Christenen (KB3GFV) will be hosting a Webex meeting for those who would like to join in. This is a first attempt at joining a Webex and OTA meeting. 

A good number of you may have already gotten an email invitation from "messenger@webex.com." This email provides you with all of the details required to join into the Webex meeting if you are not able to hit the repeater -- or just because.  You may also receive a general email from the ARA that includes the same details. We are not replacing the Over The Air (OTA) meeting with the Webex meeting. The Webex meeting is a BACKUP to the OTA meeting for those who are unable to hit the repeater. 

The OTA meeting will be held as scheduled: Tuesday, April 21, 20202 at 1900 EDT. Repeater 146.940, PL tones of 100.

Amateur Radio Gear for Sale!

During our last meeting (after Gary DePalma gave a nice presentation on Vector Network Analyzers), Milt (N3LTQ) said he would have two listing of amateur gear from two separate sellers; I received the listings today, and they are now avaialble to all of you. Each seller prepared a descriptive inormational sheet; click the links to open the seller-prepared information sheet. Please contact each seller directly at the numbers listed (please do not contact the ARA). Good Luck!
