Hoop conducted a short meeting at our annual Lopez Island SJCARS picnic


Saturday, September 14, 2019,  
Odlin County Park

Dear SCJARS members and Friends, 

Our next SJCARS monthly meeting will be the Lopez Club BBQ, which will be on Saturday, September 14. Mark your calendars! The BBQ will be at the Picnic Shelter at Odlin County Park on Lopez Island, from about 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, or as your schedules permit.  The park is lovely and is right on the beach.  Click here for a map from the ferry.  

The Summer Ferry Schedule calls for an early start, and potentially early departure for those coming from off-island:  
– Depart Orcas at 9:15 am arrive Lopez at 9:50 am
– Depart SJI at 8:30 am arrive Lopez at 9:50 am 
– Depart Anacortes at 9:35 am arrive Lopez at 10:15 am

– Depart Lopez at 2:40 pm arrive Anacortes at 3:20 pm
– Depart Lopez at 1:30 pm arrive Orcas at 1:45 pm
– Depart Lopez at 1:05 pm arrive SJI at 1:55 pm 
(Next inter-island boat leaves at 3:45 for those that wish to stay until then / explore more of Lopez.)

Lopez hams can provide transportation if you choose to walk-on the ferry, or for those who fly-in. 

This is a modified potluck: bring food to share and something of your own to grill.  Our Lopez contingent will provide a grill and a cooler with drinks. Bring something to grill and a side dish, salad or dessert to share. We encourage folks to prepare for a no trash event by bringing a reusable plate and utensils.  As always, friends and family are welcome!

We will table the usual meeting business items such as minutes approval and committee reports, and instead will simply touch on any upcoming calendar items and “Stories from your Shack”. Of course, bring you HTs and any interesting ham gear to show off.
The August minutes will be posted to the website.

Monitor Cady Mountain Repeater 146.700, Dup-, Tone 131.8 for coordination of rides to Odlin County Park from the ferry or airfield.

Highlights include:

• HamWan is installed on Lookout Mt

• What is AMPRnet (Net44)?



Highlights of the meeting include 2019 Field Day reports.


There is a new HamWAN Site that Kenny, KU7M, helped bring up last weekend. It’s located south of Bellingham on Lookout Mountain, and paints the east side of the San Juan Islands:

If you’re in the coverage area and would like to connect, contact me at the club meeting this Friday.

There will be an Open House Celebration of Life for Sue and Dick Rich on August 4, 1 to 4 p.m., at The Backdoor Kitchen, 400 A St., Friday Harbor.  Dick, W6OPX, was a long time SJCARS member and one of the regulars who did the Tuesday CEMNET checkin at Mullis Fire Stn. for many years.
