What's New at SHARC

   July 10, 2015

The 2015 ARRL Field Day is a wrap!

(Thanks Rod for this report.)







A 2013 phot

SHARC operated Field Day from the Finney County LEC/EOC, 
Class 2F.
We utilized generator power and had a GOTA station on the air. 
Operation was mainly from Matt, KDEZS's, "Hamper", 
(air-conditioned cramped facilities, hi)
Log: 123 CW Contacts, (mostly, maybe all, by Jim, ACE).
        144 Phone Contacts  shared by several operators. 
Operation was on 75/80, 40. 20, 15, 10 & 6 Meters.  
Lots of food and good time was had by all!
SK Report, we lost an area operator, WAJSL, Mary Gerard, XYL of Don, WAJSM.
Repeater updates:  The SKECT (Hospital Network) is alive and well.  
Covers most all of SW Kansas.
Garden City access is:  442.500/+5, with CTCSS of 141.3
Scott City is now home of a K-Link repeater, the Scott City UHF Machine was moved to a new tower with a new coordinated frequency of 444.950/+5, 
with CTCSS of 100.0.
The K-Link network allows almost seamless coverage  using repeaters on the system, from about 30Mi west of Scott City to Topeka, up to Concordia and down to Wichita.  K-Link coverage maps available on the KsLink web site.
CKARC, Salina, is again hosting the Kansas Div ARRL Convention, August 16th.  We will be having a 'Pre-Convention Dinner' again this year at Martinellis in Salina.  Info should be out soon.
