The Gaston County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) has its November meeting this Thursday, November 10th at 7:00 PM, at the Gaston County Emergency Operations Center, located at 615 N. Highland Street, Gastonia, North Carolina.
Gaston County Amateur Radio Society (GCARS) will have its November monthly meeting tomorrow, November 7th at 7 p.m., at 190 S. Oakland St. Gastonia, NC upstairs in the Red Cross Building.
Bill Stevenson, AJ4JZ, will be teaching us about Arduino technology. This will be fun!
We welcome all those who have any interest in ham radio and electronics. You do not have to be a licensed ham to attend!
Thank you to all the GCARS members who got up really early, braved the crazy traffic and stood in the cold this morning to help with the Spencer Mountain 10mile/5K Race. It was a great day to be a ham!
Check out a few photos from today’s community service opportunity!
We send our most sincere condolences to George, NC0G and Scott, N2JSP in their loss. We will greatly miss Sherland, KF4TLL, now a silent key.
Sherland was a wonderful wife, mother, sister, friend and more. She encouraged me to become a ham. We got into “trouble” talking too loudly near the CW station during field day two summers ago. It was so much fun being hushed by the CWer’s!! She always had a smile on her face and encouragement to share regardless of what was happening. Life will not be the same without her.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Poteat family.
