December 9 On-Line Meeting: FCC-required Station Evaluation and Nominations
The FCC has recently ruled that all amateur operators must do an evaluation of their stations to ensure that transmissions will not endanger the lives of the operator, family, others in the same building or vehicle, or even passers by. How many of us have actually done this evaluation? We suspect that many have not, and those that have may not be completely comfortable they have done it correctly.
It's really not as hard or time-consuming as one might think, but it does require a bit of calculation and perhaps some measurement of how far antennas are away from humans. Our speaker, who will help us get an idea of what's required and how to calculate it, is Paul Plack, AE4KR. He will show us how to calculate the information FCC requires, and be confident that it is accurate.
The November meeting is also nomination night for UARC officers to serve in 2022. The nominations from the nominating committee will be presented as required by the bylaws, and any additional nominations will be accepted. Because of the complications of on-line meetings, our President, Morris Farmer, AD7SR, asks that any additional nominations be sent (by email at email@example.com is acceptable) to him by December 1.
The current nominees are:
|President:||Morris Farmer, AD7SR|
|Executive Vice-President:||Lonnie Oaks, K7LO|
|Vice-President:||Bruce Fereday, KF7OZK|
|Secretary:||Tom Kamlowsky, WA7ZRG|
|Treasurer:||Chuck Johnson, WA7JOS|
|Program Chairperson:||Mike McAnish, KI7MTI|
|Program Chairperson:||Jeri Brummett, WJ3RI|
|Microvolt Editor:||Gordon Smith, K7HFV|
|Assistant Editor:||Rick Asper, AC7RA|
The meeting will be on Thursday, December 9, and will, again, be an on-line meeting. It can be accessed (along with several past meeting programs) by going to: https://www.youtube.com/c/UtahAmateurRadioClub and looking for the video marked “live.”
