Welcome new members:

 

Sharon Porter and Terry Schlee.  Both are working on getting their ham licenses.

 

 

 

 

 

The venue switches to Coconut on Hwy 334 in the center of Cedar Creek Lake.

 

However, don’t tell anyone that Coconut is open for lunches on Tuesdays in April.  They have decided to not open that early in the month.

 

However, they are honoring our group and will open and close just for us on the Tuesdays in April.  We will be treated like a private party and have the place to ourselves.  Tres Cool!

 

So bring a friend and enjoy the trivia and good times.  Try to arrive after 11:30 please.

The following attended the Ham Cram course presented by George Yarger, W5BRG, and passed the Tech exam on January 30th. Congratulations to each and welcome to the HAM community. Please come to the next meeting of the Cedar Creek Amateur Radio Club so we may meet you personally and provide encouragement and assistance in your new hobby:   HAM RADIO!!

The CCARC meets the second Saturday of each month at The Mabank Cafe. Breakfast is a 8 am and the meeting starts at 9 am.

The Mabank Café is located at:

For More Information

CCARC Vice-President Rich Casey, N5CSU, was guest on two recent HamRadioNow video podcasts hosted by Gary Pearce, KN4AQ.  Both shows include several mentions of the Cedar Creek ARC.

The first show is a remembrance of how Gary and Rich met on the air fifty years ago as newly licensed hams. They discuss the early days of the FM mode in Chicago; this is quite an introduction to how ham radio used to be!

In part two, Rich and Gary discuss the Internet and many tools that will be useful to hams both new and old.

Rich’s blog Casey’s Place adds a little background on both shows, and includes links to all the tools mentioned in the second show.

We’ve added several more resources for our new hams and those members planning to upgrade their license class; check them out on our Welcome page.

CCARC YouTube Channel

The Cedar Creek ARC now has its own YouTube channel, thanks to work by George, W5BRG, and Ed, K8MKN!  We’ll post our Skype interviews (if OK by our guest speaker) and other video tidbits.
