Good morning Fulton County,

Jim McBride (K8JPD) has requested the clubs help with a 5k run/walk being held February 15th in Delta.  The course starts at the Open Door on Palmwood, to Adrian, in and out of the cemetery, up to Co Rd H, then over to 7-2, and back down to Palmwood.  We would need about 8 people to assist with monitoring the course at various intersections.  This is very similar to the work we do at Lockport and Fayette.   Please send me back a message if you think you will be able to help at this event.  We plan on meeting at 8:00am for course assignments and I would expect the event to last only a few hours.

Event details can be found at:

We plan on using the K8LI repeater for communications.

January Meeting Notes

Hello everyone, here are some notes from the Monday night Club meeting:

The meeting was called to order at 7:30pm with 17 members in attendance. Minutes from the previous meeting and the treasurer's report were read and accepted.

Committee reports follow:

Education: Tom Servoss has stated that we have one person scheduled for testing on January 25, although the test time has been rescheduled to 11:15am.

Hi folks, I've put together a list of events, hamfests, and other amateur radio related happenings for 2014.  Let me know if I missed anything for the year.

Tom (KC8UOM) has a confirmed appointment for January 25, but was requested to push back the start time to 11:15am.  The test location remains the same at the Delta Public Library.

2013 Year in Review

Happy New Year From the Fulton County Amateur Radio Club! We had a great year full of public service events, educational workshops, and radio contesting.

Club Officers:
Your 2013 officers remained unchanged from the previous year, with Bryan Patterson (kb8elg) as your club president, Craig Szczublewski (kd8kbu) as your club VP, Angela Infante (kb2avn) as secretary, and Lu Ann Kuney (kb2elh) as Treasurer.

Repeater:

We made improvements to the environmental controls of the primary repeater site, installing more efficient air conditioning and heating. The amplifier took a bit of damage, mostly from age and use, but we expect to have this repaired soon.

The next club meeting will be held on January 20 at the County Administration Building (same as the Drivers License Bureau), 152 S. Fulton St, Wauseon at 7:30pm.

Notes to Pass Along:

The first business meeting of the year is the election of club officers, your attendance is greatly appreciated for this.  Club membership renewals for 2014 are also due at this time.   I will be getting renewal notices out via e-mail and postal mail in the next few days.  If I happen to miss you, please let me know.  Your membership fees help offset the cost of running the club and maintaining the repeater.  Your continued support is greatly appreciated.

It was nice to have a good turnout for the Christmas Dinner at The Barn in Archbold.  I have a few pictures online at the club website here: http://k8bxq.org/node/215

Hello everyone, here are some notes from the November 18th Club meeting:

The meeting was called to order at 7:30pm with 15 members in attendance. Minutes from the previous meeting and the treasurer's report were read and accepted.

Committee reports follow:

Repeater Committee:  A wellness check on the repeater site will be scheduled within the next couple of weeks to make sure the shack is in good condition for winter and to check all fittings and cabling.  KB8ELG reports that DSL service will not be an option since the best cost the local ISP could provide was more then the limit the club members decided to set.  For the interim, the 440 link to the K8LI repeater is still planned to provide IRLP and Echolink services.

The next club meeting will be held on November 18th at the County Administration Building (same as the Drivers License Bureau), 152 S. Fulton St, Wauseon at 7:30pm.
