Museum Ships Weekend Operating Event
June 5th, 6th & 7th

All hands on deck! Museum Ships weekend is coming up on June 5th through the 7th.  We needs all hands and operators for the entire weekend as we put the USS Lucid, Stockton's very own Museum Ship, On The Air for the world to hear.  

Museum Ships Weekend as an annual operating "event" - not a contest.  Our goal is similar and that is to put the ship on the air and work as many stations as we can on as many bands as we can. Amateurs who work our ship and others qualify for awards.  

Our plan is for two QRO (higher power) stations on HF - Primarily on 40-Meters and 20-17-15-12-10-Meters during the day and 80-40-Meters at night.  Rigs will include the club's new "Grab and Go HF +" Station and John NZ6Q's 200-watt TS-480S.  We are working on a 3rd station for CW depending on participation.  

At least one cub scout den has asked to tour the ship during the event.  

Plans are underway also for a BBQ for Saturday night June 6th for the club. 

Last weekend the club got together and got the tri-band Yagi antenna up on the boat.  There is still more work to do to be "ship shape" for the event. We still need to test antennas, make sure that power is in good working order and that operating stations will not interfere with each other.  

Plan today and let Paul N6KZW, Dave N6LHL or John NZ6Q know we can count on you to be there sailors!

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.
