June, 2023 UARC meeting:

Thursday, June 8, 2023 - Meeting will start at 7:30 PM MT

It's June - It's Field Day!

With Field Day coming upon us quickly (It's the weekend of June 24th) we'll be talking about UARC's Field Day plans - and Field Day in general.

"What's Field Day?" you ask? This occurs on the fourth weekend of every June and it's an event where amateur radio operators are encouraged to take their radios out into the wilds - which could be a local park or out in the woods - and operate them portably, from alternate power sources. In other words, if you got into amateur radio to "do" emergency communications, this event is for you!

For more information about UARC's field day, go to UARC's Field Day Information Page.

This meeting will probably be made available on UARC's YouTube Channel, live and for later playback.

The meeting room scheduled for the next few months is #2230.  If you enter the glass doors on the east side of the building, it is most of the way down the hall and up at the top of the stairs to the right.

For directions on how to get to the meeting, including elevator access - and to find out which parking lots you can SAFELY park in without getting a ticket - go to the "Directions to the Meeting" page - link.

The "Meeting before the meeting"

We encourage you - if you are able - to join some of the meeting attendees at Litza's Pizza, on the south-east corner of 700 East and 400 South at 1730 (5:30 pm) for food, fun and conversation.

We hope to see you there!

Gordon Smith, K7HFV (SK):

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our friend and "Elmer" Gordon Smith, K7HFV on April 21, 2022.  Gordon was not only the friendly voice on the radio, but the "Elmer's Elmer", helping new hams into the hobby, offering sage advice, and pointing the way for many new hams to become Elmers themselves.

You can find a short bio about Gordon and information about the memorial service here.

He will be greatly missed!
