Computer Nets will be on the 3rd & 4th Wednesdays at 8:30 PM on W2VL.

They’re not just laptops and desktops any more. Computers are in our cars, our televisions and even our ham rigs. Join a group of computer enthusiasts on the LIMARC Computer Net to discuss your computer experiences. Got a question? Someone on the net may already know the answer. Working on an interesting project? We’d love to hear about it. We discuss so many interesting topics you may just want to listen even if you don’t have a question for the net.

Computer Nets will be on the 3rd & 4th Wednesdays of each month at 8:30 PM on W2VL.

No license? No Problem: Email your questions to computernet@limarc.org

In a month where there are five weeks, we will have an FYI Net with an assortment of information.

It gives those attending the General meetings and some hamfests, a chance to win money and the club to raise some money too. Every bit of help is much appreciated.

LIMARC was founded in 1965 and has maintained a focus on public service and technical excellence. The officers and members of LIMARC invite everyone in the Amateur Radio community to attend the celebration. There was a special 40th Anniversary Journal and some special awards. The Journal included a history of the club and a list of all the officers and board members from 1965 to the present.


Hopefully, Diane will be able to organize LIMARC’s 50th Anniversary Party! Perhaps someone reading this would like to take on the task or at least assist Diane, if she does decide to take it on. Feel free to contact Diane K2DO  if you are interested. You can reach them at their callsign at limarc ’dot’ org.

Fox Hunting
Chairman:


email:




Come out and learn radio direction finding techniques by locating a hidden transmitter. If you have a doppler direction finder, a handheld beam antenna, or any other radio direction finding equipment, you can lead a group of hunters to be the first ones to locate the box. Even if you do not have any equipment, you can come out and ride with some other experienced hunters and learn the ropes.

We will usually have 2 hunts which run consecutively in the 2 meter band and also in the 220 Mhz and 440 Mhz band. This is a great way to have fun with your fellow hams!!!

Dates and times of the hunts will be announced on the Monday night Info-Net.

Interference

RFI Chairmen
Richie, K2KNB
 

Email: rfi@limarc.org




Please give any and all details of what you hear when there is malicious interference on our repeaters. We have a form here that you can download. It’s a zipped file that contains an executable file that is safe to download. You will most likely get a pop up notice that it is an unknown source, but it’s truly safe.

You can print on it when you see the form on your computer, there’s no need to print it before you fill it out. Fill out the form by clicking on each field first, then print it and snail mail it. You can print on the form with your computer. Just don’t use the "click to submit" feature on the bottom as that feature doesn’t work.

Then save the form on your computer using a unique name. Maybe put in your callsign and date along with "Interference form" or words to that effect.

You should zip the file you’ve filled in before attaching it because many email programs do not send out .exe files. Just right click on your file to zip it. When you right click, you might see, "Compress and email". Do that and you’re golden - it will automatically open your email program and attach the zipped file. Sometimes you’ll see "Add to archive" and that will put the zipped file on your computer. If you do it that way, just attach the zipped file that same way you’d attach any other file.

Just make sure that each time you send in a report that you change the file name somewhat so that it stays unique. Make sure to really attach the zipped Interference form in your email - it’s so easy to forget. Whatever information you can give (even if it’s to say that you could hear nothing on the input) is greatly appreciated.

There is a "Click to Submit" button and wording on the Interference form, but please don’t use that as it doesn’t work. If you run into trouble or you have any questions about how to make your form work, you can contact either Rich N2STU or Nancy N2TKA (me) at our callsigns at limarc.org.

Click the "Download Now" button to download the Interference Form. Download Nomination Form

  

If you have a problem with the form itself, please contact Rich N2STU at his callsign N2STU at limarc.org. Thanks for being part of the solution!

I’ve seen the pin and it is SO much prettier than this photo shows! The antenna is gold (not green as it appears in the photo). The map and car are outlined and detailed with beautiful, shiny gold. It really is a beautiful cloisonn pin and you get it FREE if you buy a book of raffles. The raffles are $1/each, but you get 13 raffles for only $10 and this pin is included! I’m not kidding, it really is very beautiful!

N2MEI Award
Co-Chairman:
Al Bender,  W2QZ
Howard Jrimko, WF2Q

email:


Kevin C. Kane, N2MEI, was a New York City Firefighter, and a member of LIMARC. Early on the morning of September 12, 1991, Kevin responded with Engine Company 236 to a fire in at an abandoned apartment house in the East New York section of Brooklyn. Despite the knowledge that there might not be enough hose to reach all parts of the house, Kevin and his fellow firefighters entered the building in search of victims. Shortly thereafter, a section of burning ceiling fell on Kevin. Despite the frantic efforts of his colleagues, they were not able to reach him. Eventually he managed to jump from a window, into the bucket of a fire truck. Having been burned over most of his body, he died the next day.

In his honor, The NYFD named a fireboat The Kevin C. Kane, and created the Kevin C. Kane Medal for bravery.

In his honor, LIMARC created the N2MEI Award for outstanding public service.

This award can be given to anyone, not just LIMARC members, who are within the area covered by the LIMARC repeaters i.e., NYC-LI. We welcome your recommendation of noteworthy candidates.

Refreshments

At our monthly meetings, we are lucky enough to have great donuts and coffee while we take time to visit and talk to our friends. The donuts are wonderful and while many don’t usually think about it, there’s a lot of work involved before and after the meetings. The hot beverages have to be set up and brewed, the sugar and substitutes, the milk, etc. and the donuts have to be placed out for the members’ convenience, and then there’s the cleaning up afterwards which isn’t fun. Jay, we really appreciate what you and your crew/family do for us each month!

About The School Club Roundup

By Lew Malchick, N2RQ

School Club Roundup (SCR) is sponsored by the ARRL, its Hudson Division Education Task Force and and the Long Island Mobile Amateur Radio Club (LIMARC), to foster contacts with and among school radio clubs.

The SCR is a great way to get young operators on the air. Very often a new operator will be intimidated by the fear of not knowing what to say to the stranger on the other side of the radio. The exchange information helps to overcome this fear in a low pressure contest format. Operators are encouraged to take some time to chat beyond the contest exchange.

Award certificates will be issued for the following US and DX categories:
Schools: Elementary, Middle/Intermediate/Junior High School, High School and College/University.
In addition, non-school clubs and individials also compete for certificates.

Join the SCR e-mail reflector by sending an e-mail to SCR-L-subscribe@yahoogroups.com.

The information above was taken from the ARRL website, it was written by the SCR chairman, Lew N2RQ. To read more, please check out the ARRL website about the School Club Roundup.

Social Committee


What is the social committee?

The social committee will arrange events that are not necessarily ham related. these activities should be fun, exciting and interesting things that one might not think a radio club would hold. The committee will arrange these activities, collect the funds, issue tickets and make all the arrangements for the club members, their families and friends. These activities will attract our members and people who are not members and give them a chance to get to know each other, have fun and hopefully increase the membership through positive experiences.

What kind of activities will the social committee arrange?

I thnk we will arange for activities that will include families, activities for men, activities for women and activities for children. Items could include, but are not limited to: picnics, barbaques, bicycle rides, theater, movies, bowling, paintball, rafting, cruises, dinner theater, dinner cruises, dude ranches, and more. The imagination and limitations are only defined by who joins to be part of the committee.

Who can be a member of this committee?

Any limarc member!

When will the committee meet?

I will make arangements with Levitown hall for our meeting. The dates will be posted here on the web and in the LOG

How many activities will be aranges in any given year?

That will depend on who is on the committee, who will participate and the reaction of our members.

As everyone probably knows by now, there is a very active Technical Committee in place, and I wanted to let everyone know what we would like to accomplish.

Our overall goal is to make it possible to use a handie-talkie in Montauk, and reach to Manhattan and beyond. We have begun work by inspecting and upgrading equipment, and we expect very shortly to have the first of out links up and running. This will be used to link the Selden repeater with the 85 repeater. The times and length of linking are to be determined.

We are looking into ways of bringing Echolink and IRLP into the normal operations of the club. These also become valuable tools in the total linking process.

We will keep you informed about what is going on and we also value your input. You can contact us at with your questions and opinions, and also look for postings on the Limarc Reflector, and on the website at www.limarc.org

We would also like to encourage you to sign up for the Limarc Reflector. Just follow the links here on the website. As we put into place some of these technical changes, the Website and the Reflector will be important ways for us to keep you informed.

Please remember to bring an unwrapped toy to the LIMARC Holiday Party/Parties for toys for tots! You need only spend $5 to $10 on each toy for each person coming to the party and the hospital asks that the toys not be too furry. Thanks and hope to cu there!

Every year at our Holiday Party, the people who come to eat and enjoy the company of friends during the holiday season, also bring an unused, unwrapped toy to donate. It’s a small way of giving back and it’s very much appreciated by the children.

Just check the date on the book to make sure that the book you are looking at will cover the upcoming tests. Tests do change on a regular basis, so c’mon and get studying! The Internet has many learning sources and LIMARC’S Link page shows many places with many links. Many of the links lead to other links, so browse as you learn.

You can also go to this ARRL site to learn more about how to become a ham from the national association for Amateur Radio, the ARRL. Check the Education section on this site to learn about upcoming classes. If no class schedule is posted, feel free to email one of our Education chairmen.

For more info and directions, you can also go to our VE Schedule page
