Welcome to the new blog for Spartanburg Amateur Radio Club.

Getting information from the blog is easy, sign up to follow the blog and you will receive an email notifying you that something has been posted or just check the blog periodically to see the latest new

The March of Dimes Walk will be held this Saturday, April 29, 2017. The walk will begin at 9:00 am at Duncan Park, 81 West Park Drive, Spartanburg, SC 29306. Spartanburg Amateur Radio Club will once again be supporting this event by providing radio communications during the walk. We need to man the following positions: 2 water stations, 2 vans, 2 people at net control, 1 operator at the stage and 1 operator near the fire truck to help start the race. If you would like to help the club support this event please respond to lisacdav@gmail.com with your name, preferred position, and your t-shirt size. Please note that the organizer has not mentioned t-shirts this year so they may not be available; I am checking on the availability this week.

If you plan to volunteer for this event please meet at the District 7 Operations Center parking lot located at the corner of Union and Virginia Street by 7:45 am.  Vans will pick up their radio operators in the parking lot and other operators will disperse from there.

As always, thanks for your help!
