Hey Jane,
If you have the time free for Nov 6 in the morning, I sure hope you could join in the exercise. We are planning to include a portion of the exercise on the MU campus with all HTs, so you have the equipment to fully participate. The SET is called a "no-fault" exercise, so you won't be under any pressure, just learn more about your radio and how to pass some messages to another station.
But if you do just want to listen to a directed emergency type net, tune to 146.610 MHz. (but don't interrupt :).

Thanks Bob. I should have indicated that you don’t have to be a member of either club to participate in the SET. I’ll put you on the list with your mobile. Do you do WinLink?

Much more info to come as we work out the plan.

Well, damn bro.  Looks like it's time to get them bullets, beans and band-aids sorted out.

Any idea how this compares to previous CME events?  I've not been real attentive to them.

Greetings!



Attached you will find the official flyer for the 3900 Club
Hamboree 2021. We have noticed a trend with the few
hamfests held thus far this year that the people attending
are coming from farther distances due to the overwhelming
effect of "cabin fever" and no place to go! Hamboree 2021
will be a partial cure for this common amateur ailment!
Pass the word far and wide so those who are afflicted can
mark their calendars for a chance to get out of the house.
This is a wife-approved message.

1:00 p.m..

Good evening everyone,

We have been laboring to get the NARCfest 2021 off the ground and ready for
everyone to enjoy!!

This year's hamfest is being held at the Barnhouse Event Center located at
5484 W Sunshine St, Brookline, MO 65619. This convenient location is on
Sunshine St (also known as State Hwy 413) on the Southeast corner of the
intersection of James River Expressway & State Hwy 413 between Springfield
and Republic.

Doors open at 8:00 a.m. and we have some exciting events lined up for you
already. Associated Radio, D&L Antenna and Ham Crazy will be on site for
all your new equipment needs. If you're in the market for used gear,
you're also in luck! We will have about 25 tables available for used
equipment with almost 1/4 of those already rented and the hamfest still a
little over 7 weeks away. So if you have some used gear to sell, please
email us ASAP before the tables are gone at hamfest@nixahams.net as 1/3 of
the tables are already rented!

At 8:30 a.m., Rob Huelga, W3LGA, and members from the Nixa ARC VE team will
be holding a VE testing session in the upstairs conference room area.

At 10:30 a.m., the upstairs conference room will be the home for two
excellent forums we have lined up. The first forum will be a tag-team
effort with Rob Steenburg, AD0IU, joining us via an online video stream
from Colorado with our local host Bob Renard, N7WY. Rob works at the Space
Weather Prediction Center in Colorado and works on short term, 0-3 day
forecasts, and they will be discussing how these forecasts are created, how
to interpret them and how they can be used to make your HF radio on-air
time more enjoyable & productive during contests and general rag chewing.

At 12:00 p.m., Larry Grinstead, WA0JZK, will be conducting a forum on FT8 -
the popular HF digital mode that everyone is raving about! He'll give some
background on FT8, talk give some general setup tips for your station, and
talk about typical on-air operating with this fabulous digital mode.

If you want to catch breakfast, a morning snack or lunch, the Barnhouse
Grill will be open and serving coffee and food throughout the event at
their on-site restaurant. Even though the restaurant is separate from the
hamfest venue, you won't have to go outside in the cold to get to it!

There is plenty of parking on site - you will be able to park on the East,
West or North parking lots around the building with handicap access to the
forum / VE testing area on the West side of the facility. To streamline
entry, the entry cost is $10.00 and that gives you 2 chances at hamfest
prizes. And, if you would like to purchase the Super Ticket for $20.00,
that gives you 20 chances to win!!!! We have several prizes already
courtesy of Ham Crazy and the ARRL and will be announcing more prize
information as we get closer to the hamfest.

If you would like to pre-purchase your ticket, please email
hamfest@nixahams.net and we can email you a paypal invoice for your ticket
of choice. By purchasing beforehand, you can enter via our pre-paid line
and simply provide your callsign and some type of picture ID and you'll be
on your way to shopping our used gear!

Remember: All funds from the hamfest go to support the Southwest Missouri
Linked Repeater System (SMLRS). We are hoping to add a couple of repeaters
to the network to fill in the coverage of the system should it be needed
for a regional ARES activation or as a backup for / supplemental
communications medium for the regional SkyWarn network.
