Our Local Amateur Radio Club ,

invites interested Louisville Folks Saturday for a Picnic

At last month’s Plattsmouth Amateur Radio Club meeting it was decided to have a picnic for our September meeting.  We will have it at noon on Saturday, September 27, 2008 at Memorial park in Plattsmouth.  There will be NO meeting at Mom’s Café that morning.  The weather forecast is claiming good weather for Saturday so it should be a good chance to get together without getting up early on a Saturday morning.  It’s pot luck, so bring something, and a plate & a fork.  We’ve frozen and we’ve baked at these picnics, but we have never run out of good food.

  The park is located on 4th avenue just east of 18th street in Plattsmouth.  This is just east of the ball fields in the western part of town.  From Burger King, go east to 18th then turn right (south) for three blocks to 4th avenue then left (east) for about two blocks.  The parking lot and park shelter is on your right and is beside the lower ball field.  You could also turn at the stop light by Keno and go east to 18th, or  if you really wanted you could go to the next stop light and then take a couple of turns around the roundabout until you figure which street to take.  Here is a link to Google maps that may help. 

Click Here  

Click the link then click on the Plattsmouth ARC picnic location map choice on the left side of the page.  It then will add the markers & a line for you.  This is a nice feature that they have added.  

73 & hope to see you there!

For the Love of Gizmos
 

"..you Hear That? Those guys are Hams!.." my Dad said..

I was born in Alaska. My Dad was in the Air Force playing chicken with Russians US side of the Bering Strait  and planning his future in Electronics.

Apparently he was able to get old Radio Equipment,

 military.jpg

and he loved to tinker with tubes, and capacitors. My earliest memory is watching him mess with this stuff. I remember him tuning around in the darkened room, and I clearly remember his excitement at hearing Amateur Radio Operators in Missouri, and Oregon calling CQ .

165px-icom.png

I couldn't imagine anything greater, than someday being able to be one of those mysterious world wide voices out there in the dark night sky.  

I can tell you those early impressions helped define my goals

If you have  kids that are curious about all things technical, or just like gizmos, there is a whole world waiting for them and Hams are the folks that can translate theory, and math, and discipline and even more gizmos into world-opening magic!

More importantly, there is a fraternity, a tradition that goes back to the early days of Radio that becomes part of your DNA. People at the highest levels of Business and Government, become your brothers in this proud legacy of invention and service.

There is a name for a person that takes time and shows patience in helping another to become a Ham, that person is called with respect "an Elmer " not sure who was the first Elmer , but once you have your Ham License your "Ticket " you are honor bound to Elmer some one else, a kid, or a retired friend, and welcome them to the Unlimited world of Discovery, that is Amateur Radio .

Grab that kid, and a friend, your XYL and head out for a Picnic on Saturday - Meet Real Licensed Hams and discover a brand new world that is, Amateur Radio!
