2021 Union County Amateur Radio Club Trunkfest Canceled

We are sad to announce that the 2021 Union County Amateur Radio Trunkfest will not be held this year. The uncertainty of how the pandemic was going to be this year made it impossible to plan for having it in June. We were looking at having it in October but there weren't enough club members available to help with putting it on. 

Welcome to the Union County Amateur Radio Club

This site was created for other Union County/neighbouring county hams or people who are interested in Amateur Radio.

The Union County Amateur Radio Club meets at 7pm on the first Tuesday of each month.
Meetings are held at:

Marvin C. Gilbert EMA Operations Building - EMA Station 720

Canceled Oct 2 ARRL Convention / VetteCity Hamfest

It is with sincere regrets that the Kentucky Colonel's Amateur Radio
Club makes the announcement that after an extremely careful and critical
evaluation of the current and evolving Covid-19 situation in the
Commonwealth of Kentucky, the decision has been made to cancel the 2021
VetteCity Hamfest and the Great Lakes ARRL Convention. 

Covid cases are continuing to rise in Kentucky, and medical restrictions
are changing frequently.   Six of the ten most affected counties
nationally are in the region.  Coupling this with the uncertainties of
travel limitations, vendor participation, venue restrictions and the
liabilities related to attendee exposure, the event was unlikely to be
the outstanding event the sponsoring committees had planned.
Pre-registration refunds are under way. 

The Kentucky Colonel's Amateur Radio Club and the Great Lakes Division
staff wish to thank vendors, those who assisted in planning, volunteers
for hosting forums and everyone who otherwise offered their services for
this event.

73, with regrets,

Dale Williams WA8EFK
Director
Great Lakes Division

August Meeting - Repeater Tour

Repeater Tour

We had a fun time at our first in person meeting this year. It was great seeing everyone. Joe, K8JWL gave a tour of the N8IG repeater which included explaining what all the antennas on the tower were for. We also discussed some of the projects that we need to get wrapped up hopefully before the weather gets cold again.

George, KE8NIY is getting a POTA group together to activate Ohio Parks on a monthly basis for Parks on The Air https://parksontheair.com/ . Park activations may take place in an afternoon or may be a weekend camping trip. The goal is to give everyone that is interested in learning and practicing operating portable one weekend a month to do just that. A weekend camping POTA activation would provide the opportunity to test out a 2 or 3 day deployment bag/kit. Park activations would be an opportunity to try out different antennas, and over all improve portable operating skills and equipment/antenna setup.
