By The Staff

The Friendship Amateur Radio Club held its monthly meeting on July 13 with Charles Lucas, W1DOH, the club’s president, presiding. The presentation at this month’s meeting was a video which involved the element of “probagation.”

This was followed by a question and answer period. The club’s Web site continues to show the minutes to the treasurer’s and secretary’s meeting. The FARC’s Club Call is N4FRC. The next meeting is scheduled for Aug. 10 at 1:30 p.m. at the auxiliary Sheriffs Station on West S.R. 200. All Hams are invited and members are urged to attend and to bring a guest.

A recent notation is that our club is now recognized as an SSC, Special Services Club, of which there are only four in the immediate area.

The FARC is open to all “Hams” and their families. If you are interested, and not currently licensed, the FARC has instructors who can assist in teaching theory to help you earn your license.

The FARC meets at the West S.R. 200 Sheriffs Auxiliary Station the second Monday of each month. We have members who offer their expertise in radio and computers.

The club newspaper and notices inform members of the club’s many activities. In addition, the FARC has a 2-meter net that meets on Monday at 4 p.m. on 145.170 MHz (except for Monday of the monthly meeting), and a CW net on Tuesday at 7 p.m. on 21.145 MHz.
