We are combining Field Day (June 22-23) with a mini-Swap Meet that will
be running from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM Saturday, June 22. You're welcome to
drop by, bring your ham treasures to sell and buy all the stuff others
have for sale.  It's a BYOT (Bring Your Own Table - if you need one) event.

Of course, you're also welcome to participate in our High Energy Field
Day activities that will run from noon Saturday to noon Sunday.

We hope to see many of you there!

No KARC meeting this evening!

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the late notice, but due to a lack of location and determining there was little on the agenda to worry about, tonight's KARC club meeting was cancelled.

In lieu of the club meeting gathering at a physical location, let's meet on 146.96 VE7RKA at 7:30pm for a little ragchew.

The next scheduled club meeting will be on Thursday September 5, please mark your calendars!  In fact, I will send out a digital calendar invite for current club members, for handy use in your electronic organizers.

On behalf of the club, have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you in the fall!

May KARC meeting this Thursday evening!

The Kamloops Amateur Radio Club will be holding their monthly meeting in Room 1411, Old Main Building on the TRU campus on May 2, 2019.

Please check the maps when you enter Old Main - 1411 is on the main/ground level and is very easy to get to, but one does have to watch the room numbers closely if just wandering without having looked at the floor maps.

Further information on the location and parking can be found in our announcement from February.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Next KARC club meeting Feb. 7, 2019

The next KARC meeting will be the first Thursday in February, the 7th, at 7:30pm.  We are going to meet in the Old Main building at TRU, Room 1411

After-hours parking should be pretty easy at TRU (and it's free after 5PM), but please check the following so you're not heading to the wrong place:

Google Map showing the campus and Old Main marked

TRU parking information - General / Visitor should be appropriate for us.

Clarification from Chuck:

After 5:00 p.m. parking is free at TRU. You do NOT have to only park in the Visitor spots.

The only restrictions are that you CAN NOT park in any "Reserved" spots (all identified by individual blue signs in each spot, with a number like "B24"), and you also cannot park in any loading zone, service vehicle spot or any spot marked "No Parking."

Look forward to seeing you there!

 

 

November meeting postponed

Please be advised that the KARC November meeting is being postponed to a future date and location.  We will hopefully have a new date/time and location posted on Saturday evening (3rd). 

Please stay tuned!
