The thousands of choices for antennae and the virtues of each type are the subject of the next meeting of the Cedar Creek Amateur Radio Club.
The meeting Saturday, March 10 will also feature technical reports and great fellowship. It is open to the public at 9 a.m. at the Mabank Café on Hwy 198 in Mabank. Many come early for the breakfast buffet.
The Cedar Creek ARC has over 40 members from the tri-county area. It maintains a VHF and UHF repeater system that provide hand-held radio coverage to hams in the lake area, and mobile and base coverage throughout the three counties. CCARC participates in the National Weather Service SKYWARN program and the Amateur Radio Emergency Service. The club also provides classes to those wishing to join the ranks of Amateur “ham” Radio. There no longer is a requirement or test for Morse code. For more information visit www.k5ccl.org.
