November Meeting

November meeting will be held on the 7th at the Missouri State Fairgrounds beginning at 8:30 am. We will meet in the grassy area off of gate 3 (16th Street) so everyone will need to bring their own chair. There will be no testing. Following the meeting everyone is encouraged to bring their field ham radios and antennas so we can run our Special Event Station following the meeting. Look forward to seeing everyone there.

Special Award

At our October meeting President Bret (WØVK) presented Steve DeMoss a plaque for SPARK awarding him a lifetime membership. Steve’s generous donation to our club has given us a worldwide footprint on the web. Along with his donation, his mentorship to so many hams in the area over the years has been greatly appreciated by so many. Congratulations Steve, an award well deserved.


Our October 3rd meeting will be held at Pettis County EMA Headquarters located at 1511 N. Ohio in Sedalia. Meeting will begin at 8:30 am.  Masks are optional.

Steve Semon, KEØCYW was presented with a plaque and a lifetime membership to the Sedalia Pettis Amateur Radio Klub  during the club meeting on August 29, 2020 .

The inscription on the plaque reads  “In recognition of the many years of service,  generous contributions and dedication to amateur radio in the Sedalia- Pettis County area”

Thank you Steve and congratulations!

Also, at the same meeting, Steve De Moss, WAØWUY was awarded a lifetime membership for his many decades of participation and contributions to the club including the equipment for the repeater streaming project.

Congratulations to you also!

Live Stream Phase 2 Operational

Phase two of the repeater streaming project is currently in operation. Phase two is the addition of the WBØLRX 224.44 repeater to our stream. Thanks to Jeff for letting us do that. It and the 2 meter repeater share stream number one, using the radio that Steve, WAØWUY donated, the tri-band Baofeng, that will simultaneously monitor 2m and 220.

Phase three will be forthcoming, placing the 6 meter repeater on a second stream using a radio donated by John, NØEE. This will take me some additional time since it involves fairly complex configuration of the Raspberry Pi to stream two audio sources at the same time, as well as adding to the tangled mess of wires and antennas.

Listen to the live streams on or use the Broadcastify app on your phone.

I will post photos of the completed setup after phase 3 is complete.
