STEM Camporee

So here is the update:

The STEM Camporee went very well despite the rain all day. We were able to keep in contact with Virginia for most of the duration. We first contacted Pennsylvania Scout Troop and helped some Scouts receive their Amateur Radio Badge. Then later we contacted another Scout Troop, this one in Virginia and we stayed in contact, changing frequencies occasionally, for 4 hours on the same band. That was the best part of the day. Talking to the groups that came to our tent...

Fall Repeater Test

Here are some pictures of the repeater test that was going on in the fall.  KC2FEV (JJ) and W2AND (Andy) with assistance from KC2YGF (Sean) were working on the test.  The testing went well and there were some issues with the duplexer.  Testing showed an issue with frequencies, but once that was figured out things worked well.  One system needed to be sent back and fixed, but that has been returned and is working.  We have a location planned in the spring and will...

Pumpkin Patrol Report

Posted by CNYARA Administrator on November 10, 2017 at 8:20 PM Comments comments (0)
Pumpkin Patrol 2017 went well.  We had two nights to watch four bridges.  Everything went well with 19 people crossing one bridge and no incidents both nights.  One night one vehicle forgot to start their engine to keep the battery charged and needed a jump start.  They called AAA, but before they showed up the Whitestown police stopped by and offered them a jump start and they were able to get back on the air with minimal down time.  They left their vehicle running...
