We have started a new morning net everyday at 9:00AM on the 147.045 club repeater, with a PL tone of 100. Since our Club Meetings have been cancelled until further notice, the Board Members thought it would be a good thing to have a net every morning to check on the health and welfare of our Members. This is not a formal net, and anyone anywhere can check in, especially all of our hams in neighboring counties ! So pour yourself a cup of coffee and come join us for some informational and sometimes humorous conversations ! Also please join us on our weekly Club Net Wednesday nights at 8:30PM. 73 Everyone !
ARRL Summer Field Day
This year the ARRL Summer Field Day will not be like previous Field Days. This year it will be done on an individual basis, not as a Club participation format. We encourage all Members of the Highlands County Amatuer Radio Club to participate as individuals and ask that no one use the Highlands County Amatuer Radio Clubs call sign, or make any reference to the Club in your reports to the ARRL.You can check out the rules for this years Field Day on the ARRL Website. Thank you and hope you make plenty of contacts. 73 and good luck !!
All Club Meetings and Club gatherings are at this time still on hold. QCWA meetings are scheduled to start in September. We will be having our June Club meeting on Zoom for the first time on June 15th at 7:oopm. If you are a Member and would like to be invited to the June meeting, please email me at KM4VRU@gmail.com with your email address and I will put you on the list. So far my only experience with Zoom has been the June Board Meeting so hopefully all will go well. After we see how the June Zoom Club meeting goes we will try to open the future Club meetings up to all who would like to attend, but for this month we would like to keep it to just our paid Members. Hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy and safe ! 73

The weekly club net is held on Wednesday at 8:30 pm on the club repeater (147.045 / 442.350 Mhz, PL 100).
A simple roundtable QSO is held daily at 7 pm on 147.550 Mhz simplex.
Weekly Highlands County ARES- Skywarn nets are held at 8pm. Listen to the club repeater just before the net for the announcement of which frequency will be used that night. The ARES simplex net is held following the repeater net on 146.535 Mhz, and is usually a roll-call format of those stations who checked into the repeater net. Anyone is welcome to check into these nets.
