Next UARC meeting:

Thursday, February 9, 2023 - Meeting will start at 7:30 PM MT

Main topic - Richard Mead, W7VQ, ARRL Utah Assistant Section Manager and Section Emergency Coordinator.

Richard is going to present introductory and basic information you'll need to participate in ham radio public service and emergency communication activities:  What you need to know and who to contact to become involved. What you can expect, what will be expected of you.  A key rationale for the existence of the Amateur Radio Service (FCC Part 97) is our willingness and ability to serve the public and provide emergency communications capabilities.

Elmer's Corner - Rick Graham, AI3W:  "Amateur Radio in Challenging Circumstances".  Rick will talk about how he's successful in operating HF from a less-than-optimal apartment setting.

We encourage you to attend the meeting in person, but if you are unable to be there, you may watch it live on UARC's YouTube Channel.

Other club news and announcements:

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!
