Stockton-Delta

Amateur Radio Club

THE NEXT CLUB MEETING IS THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 8TH AT 7:30 PM
W6SF AT STOCKTONCON 2016

STOCKTON-DELTA ARC Members set up a public information booth Saturday August 20th at the 2016 StocktonCon Comics/Superhero convention at the Stockton Arena. We had very good traffic throughout the day and spoke with over 100 visitors about Amateur Radio.  


We had a great time explaining Amateur Radio, talking to people about getting into the hobby, demonstrating equipment and inviting people to the next meeting, next HamCram and Rally in the Valley.  


There was quite a crowd at the convention with over 5000 in attendance.  


We set up the club "GoKit" FT-857 radio.  Bob N6TCE brought his compact 40-meter vertical.  Ed N6XMA impressed a number of prospective hams with his "GoKit" as well.  


Check out some of the guest operators below.  




plan for the event.
As of May 9th, there are 83 participating Museum Ships including the USS Lucid here in Stockton. The
USS Lucid is a 173 foot ocean going Mine Sweeper built for service in the Korean War. You can check

AUGUST HAMCRAM PASSES

18 NEW OR UPGRADED LICENSES

 

The August 13th HamCram held at the Comcast Building in Stockton was a great success.  We had an overall attendance of 21 with 18 passing for either new licenses or upgrading their current license. 


We licensed 14 new Technicians including 10-year old Kyle KM6EQN and Logan KM6EQM, son of Manteca ARC President Jason KG6H. We also had 3 General upgrades pass and 1 Extra Class upgrade. 


We set up testing at the end a little differently than previously by moving the grading into a separate conference room in the building.  This allowed for new licensees to meet and ask questions of some of the Elmer University instructors while waiting for their test to be graded. Bob K6DGQ demonstrated CW and HF and Bill AE6J answered questions about contesting, chasing DX and his Buddipole antenna.  Jason KG6H gave new hams information on area clubs and Emergency Communications. 

                              COMING SOON!

CLUB REPEATERS

Located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains at 2500 feet, the club repeaters cover the Southern Sacramento and Northern San Joaquin Valleys. The call-sign is W6SF and can be heard on 147.165 MHz and on 442.250 MHz with a PL of 107.2 Hz. Club simplex frequency is 147.51 MHz.


SDARC also has a UHF repeater, operating independently, on 444.575+ PL 107.2.  This is a local low level Stockton repeater with the call W6SF.  As the project progresses, three receiver/voters will be installed via T1 phone lines and the addition of IRLP linking to other repeaters.  
TECH REP:  Steve - K6SCA
Coming Soon!

Plans are underway to install several voting receivers, strategically located on the 444.575 repeater (W6SF) in Stockton.  The addition of these receivers will sharply increase receive capability throughout Stockton and Lodi with the use of a hand held radio.  Check the repeater occasionally for the upgrade.
TECH REP:  Knox - K6NOX
