Happy Monday, everyone...at least I THINK it's Monday!!

Dianne and I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas.  We sure did and have lots to be thankful for.

Great job on this tune Ralph!  I can just picture you sitting in a jail with Ricky Nelson accompanying by guitar and Dean Martin singing. (Was that indeed you in that John Wayne movie??)

Merry Christmas!

Re: FCC Enforcement

David Andrews
 

A true gentleman. I worked a case with him while living in Vermont. A malicious interference case also from Florida (must be something in their water). The moron had all his gear confiscated and had charges brought against him for making death threats to our NCS operator on multiple occurrences. https://www.qsotoday.com/podcasts/k4zdh is a great interview with Riley from recorded just last year. It’s worth a listen.

And I worked him with only 200mw. I was surprised to hear him come back to my CQ. He's a heck of a nice fellow (unless you're on the wrong side of the law). I helped him with a case in Florida. The perp did 4 years in the Fed Pen. If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

REMINDER: Best Wishes this Season and No TLARC Net/Zoom Meeting on Wednesday, 22 Dec 21

Chuck Ferguson - N4CSF
 

Happy Tuesday night, everyone!!  As noted on TLARC.org, there is no scheduled TLARC Net/Zoom meeting tomorrow night, 22 Dec 21, in observance of the Christmas season.  We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  Please enjoy this season with family, friends, or even that special radio rig!!!!!

We thank each of you for your tireless efforts this year in support of TLARC and Amateur Radio that have made 2021 a very special Club year.  We look forward with great anticipation to an even better 2022.  Thank you, President Mike Wagner KK6OKU and Vice President Mike Foley K4MJF, for your leadership, contributions, and tremendous sacrifices this past year for the sake of the Club and Ham Radio.  Best wishes, KK6OKU, as you assume the position of Monroe County ARES Emergency Coordinator.  Also, I'm hoping K4MJF will be able to carve out a little time in his busy, post-executive schedule to continue Elmer'ing me in the finer points of APRS and WIRES-X.  Oh, and we still have that little Extra exam to take next year, don't we??!!

Likewise, we welcome Richard Meyer W8CNY and Ben Poff KN4VIF as they take up the reigns to lead TLARC in 2022.  Please offer them your collective support and encouragement as they continue building the Club and planning future events to serve our local communities.

Lastly, take a few moments during this season to reflect on how you'd like to support TLARC, Amateur Radio, and our community in 2022.  Set goals to upgrade to that next license class, work a few public support events, or even train yourself to serve in a local ARES organization.  Make a difference as a Ham in 2022!  Best wishes, all, and Merry Christmas!!

Interesting --

With Australia supposedly in total "lockdown" over their Covid situation -- how are they having a jamboree ??
The "repeaters on site" notation implies it's not a virtual get together

Santa Clause is coming to...Room # 21000 CQ-AMERICA on Tuesday Dec. 21st, 2021 from Tuesday 10pm UTC till Wednesday (Dec 22nd) 1am UTC.

What better way for people to enjoy and celebrate our monthly Room # 21000 on the 21st than with the Yaesu System Fusion Santa Net 2021.

N9UPC, John Kruk, will start the net and look for check-ins. Once check-ins have been made John will call on the check-ins to talk to Santa. No need to register and the net will be in analog or digital formats.

 

If anyone has further questions please contact John at j.kruk@... and we will hear you on Tuesday.
