March / April – Technician Class and testing

Wow! What an honor to have the privilege of teaching and testing such a group. We had a great turnout on the class, testing, and upgrades for this March/April. 7 students, 5 new Technicians, 1 upgrade to General. It is really great to get this kind of activity in the Ham Radio Community. Be expecting to hear some new call signs in the near future. Please reach out to me if you are the first to contact one of these new Technicians, I would like to see about doing something special for them on that contact. I know a lot of hours of studying went into this and it showed.

Update: Technician class Ham 101

Wow the turnout and enthusiasm was great.  9 student’s total, of which we have two young lady’s attending the class (10&12).  There were several guest to stop by, Don (KF0ARQ), Richard (KE0QYA), Dewayn (KB9TQJ), & Bret (W0VK).  We had some good discussions and great comradery in the class.  Next class will be held on the 25th 8-4.  I would encourage you to come by say hello to the new potential Hams.   There is already discussion of wanting a General class so spread the word.   Well that’s all I have for now.  Really looking forward to getting this group tested and hearing them on the air.

2023 – February – Antenna Build Project – Dewayne Lucas KB9TQJ

We had a GREAT antenna building class after the Feb 4th meeting.  Dewayne KB9TQJ provided materials (and (Knowledge!) to build a 2 meter yagi(s)which was tuned to the repeater freq. with a SWR of 1.2 to 1.7 average.  It was a great way to spend time with some GREAT people and friends.   Now we need to put together a FOX hunt, Now that we have some directional yagi(s).  It was a really great time and good club comradery.  Thanks again to Dewayne for making this possible.                                                   

SPARK Field Day 2020

Sedalia HAMS!

Our field day this year is shaping up and is sure to be a great time.  Things will begin around 10am this Saturday and the actual Field Day Event will start at 1pm.  I have put together a spreadsheet of what our targeted day will look like, however if thigs need changed that will be no big deal, we’re keeping it fun!!!

I am very excited to be setting up at this new location and I hope it is convenient for everyone to stop by and participate.  I personally want to invite each and every Club Member / Associate / Friend or ANYONE that has interest in HAM radio to stop in and visit, participate and eat with us.  Dinner will be at 5pm this Saturday,  We have a post on Facebook describing our dinner Saturday.

I hope to see you there.  Bret W0VK

Monday (March 2nd) at 7pm the National Weather Service will be conducting storm spotter training for the Sedalia-Pettis County EMA. This training is by invite only.   EMA Director Trisha Rooda is inviting all members of SPARK to attend. Training will be at the Pettis County Courthouse. Hope to see you there. 73’s KE0QYA


President – Bret Kuhns W0VK
Vice President – Richard Camirand KE0QYA
Secretary – Harry Burford K0TV
Treasurer – John Cline N0XG

Our elected officers ran unopposed.

The previous Club Officers were thanked for their service and devotion to the club.  Paul Withers – KD0ETL ; Brooks Baker – KA0JWA;  Lana Langford – KD0IZG.

The club would not be where it’s at without all the support of the members and the work of the officers.  As we look forward to 2020 please help us grow and expand our base and community involvement by participation.  This can be as big as owning and leading a project for the club or just being that Operator that doesn’t let a call on the repeater go unanswered.   Lets make it a great year and “Make Amateur Radio Great Again!”
