The (9th annual) ’13 Colonies Special Event’ will take place between 1300z, July 1st and 0400z July 7th 2017. Operators are encouraged to get on the air and work as many special event stations as they can during the event times and can get a nice certificate for their work.
The DARC is not slowing down while we get ready for Field Day! We’re busy, but we have all our usual nets going on tonight and this week. Skynet meets tonight at 9:00 pm, and the afterglow movie net will discuss Close Encounters of the Third Kind tonight at 10:30 pm.
We’ll have a meeting on the air this Sunday, a HamFixins net this Monday, and a Vetnet this Wednesday.
There aren’t any contests going on in this part of the world this weekend; everyone seems to be waiting for Field Day.
Saturday’s Topic: “The Solar Eclipse Part 12: Weather and N. Texas Events” and “Tour of the Constellation Ophiuchus (Part 1)”
Net Control: Kelley K5KTX
Afterglow Movie 10:30PM:
“Close Encounters of the Third Kind”
I went to the West Gulf Division meeting at HamCom june 10, 2017 and was surprised to see one of our members getting an Award. Dr. David Woolweaver K5RAV presented James Shugart N5BKL with the “Lifetime Achievement Award” for his consummate volunteering. Dr. WoolWeaver continued speaking on how important volunteering is for Ham Radio as well as your life. The efforts and effects that James has had on individuals around him being a volunteer has personified him for this award. As President of the DARC, I would like to congratulate you on such a deserving award. To see the video of the presentation Click Here. To see more pictures Click Here
