Sullivan Amateur Radio Club

The next meeting of the Sullivan Amateur Radio Club will be held on Thursday, March 14th at 6:00 pm at the Sullivan Fire House #5. At this meeting we will have a presentation by Mark Griffith, the inventor of the PiGate and PiGate RMS. Mark has described his presentation as follows:

“This will be a presentation and demo on integrating ham radio functions using a combination of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) equipment for WiFi, Broadband Hamnet (BBHN), mesh and computer technology, and the PiGate system.  Several different applications and communications methods will be used to demonstrate possible amateur radio procedures to support EMCOMM.”

Mark is a great presenter and I expect this will be a very interesting topic for us all!

Come join us!

Our first Knucklehead Breakfast was a great success! So let’s have ANOTHER!!! 😀

The next Knucklehead Breakfast will be at the Cracker Barrel restaurant in Sullivan MO on Saturday, March 23rd, 2019. We’ll meet at 8:00 am! Please come join us and feel free to bring your family and friends. It really is fun and I promise, we don’t bite! 😀

For quite a while now, we have been enjoying the Knucklehead Lunches that we hold at various restaurants around the area once a week. We just recently moved those from Tuesdays to Mondays so watch the FaceBook page to keep on top of where we are meeting.

Along the way, we’ve had several people ask if we couldn’t do something on the weekends because they work during the week and couldn’t attend the lunches. So starting this coming Saturday, February 23rd, 2019, we will have our first monthly Knucklehead Breakfast! We will be meeting at the Barn and Grill in Bourbon, MO at 8:00 am. Please come and join us if you can!

I anticipate that we’ll move the breakfast around a bit to different breakfast venues as we have with the lunches. If you know of a great place for breakfast, please let us know. Our lunches have been great fun and I believe the breakfasts will be so as well!

The Sullivan Amateur Radio Club would like to congratulate our newest ham, Dana Brewer! Dana passed his Technician exam yesterday morning and is anxiously awaiting his call sign. Please make Dana feel welcome when you hear him on the air or meet him in person!

And we have a winner! Barb Siegfried is our winner for the Henry Golden Boy!

Thanks to Rachel for drawing our winner!
