November 2022 Meeting

The St Augustine Amateur Radio Society will meet this coming Tuesday November 1st at 6:30 PM. The meeting location will be the St. Augustine Airport Conference Center, 4730 Casa Cola Way, St. Augustine. (map). This is the meeting site we had before Covid. We have worked to get it back ever since. Though the Airport board is still working on some details, they have seen fit to make it available again. We will discuss this further at the meeting. I am still working on a program but we will have a full agenda. The most important item is to nominate officers for 2023.

Note the new time. 6:30 pm There have been many calls to move back to the 6:30 start time so that members can go to a restaurant after the meeting if they choose. With the move back into town, that option will be available again.

See You at the Meeting

Happy DX and 73

September 2022 Meeting

The next meeting will be held at 6:00 pm, Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at  the  St. Johns County Fair Grounds, 5840 S.R. 207 Elkton, Florida 32033 Map
Enter the fairgrounds from Armstrong Rd immediately off of Hwy 207.

… and now for something completely different …

… we will do a cookout/tailgate along with our own “Swap Meet”. The club will provide Brats, Dogs, Burgers, Buns and condiments as well as a small grill to cook stuff on.  Some drinks as well.Bring something that is collecting dust that you would consider selling.  The club will have a collection of junk available for sale for Flea market prices. 

We should have enough but if convenient, it would be great if you could bring one.

Basically a social night and picnic.  Sunset is 7:42 pm so we should have time to do most or all of our event in the evening light and before it gets dark.

International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend 2022

intl-lighthouse-logo

This weekend is the 25th anniversary International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend. The St Augustine Amateur Radio Society will be activating the Saint Augustine Lighthouse as N4AUG. Our plan is to setup and begin operating shortly after 9 am Saturday morning and continue until about 6 pm. We will also operate on Sunday again from about 9 am and until the participants get tired and want to shut down. Please be sure to wear your SAARS membership ID.

QSL information on QRZ.com –  callsign N4AUG

We plan to take a table, fan, and extension cord to the lighthouse Friday afternoon after our lunch at Neds. We will operate using an End Fed wire attached to the lighthouse itself as has been our practice for the last few years. An Icom 7300 and the clubs IC 718 will be available to operate on SSB or CW. Lighthouse weekend is a good opportunity for those that don’t get to operate on HF very often.
