Have you renewed your membership in The St. Louis and Suburban Radio Club for 2020? Many amateurs have already joined for the 2020 calendar year and if you are one of them, we thank you, as your support will help the club grow and encourage amateur radio in the St. Louis region.
If you have not renewed for 2020 or will be joining for the first time, we invite you to join the club now and enjoy all it has to offer. The process is as simple as going to the website www.slsrc.org and clicking Membership and Renewal under the Quick Link section. Payment of $30.00 can be made online with a credit or debit card via PayPal or mailing a check with a printable membership form to the address provided on the membership form. You can also renew or join at our meetings via check or cash.
What does club membership offer you?
The SLSRC is an American Radio Relay League (ARRL) affiliated club and we have a very active organization in the St. Louis area. Our activities include club meetings with interesting presentations which are view-able via YouTube, social gatherings, community service events and educational classes. The club hosts Winterfest in January, the Midwest’s largest hamfest, and Field Day in June, which provides opportunities for hams to get on the air. These are just some of the activities in which members participate and we want you to be a part of it!
Normally on the first Friday of each month we hold an informal meeting covering Back to the Basics or Mentoring Workshops. These offer the new and experienced hams a chance to learn new skills and share knowledge. Please check our calendar at www.slsrc.org/calendar for dates and time.
The SLSRC operates 7 repeaters in the St. Louis metro area. The 146.85 repeater has both IRLP (node 7106) and Echolink (node 396891) capabilities with AllStar access coming this year. The complete list of repeaters can be found at https://www.slsrc.org/repeaters-and-nets/. Feel free to use these repeaters, as they are open to the ham community. We are also in the process of building out a HamWan mesh network in the metro area!
Our general club meeting is held on the 4th Friday of every month at the Goldfarb School of Nursing, rooms 419-420, within Missouri Baptist Medical Center. Meetings start at 19:00. We hold a weekly net every Tuesday at 19:30 on the 146.850 repeater (CTCSS 141.3). The SLSRC meets the second Saturday of each month for breakfast at 07:00 at the Denny’s on Midland. On the third Saturday of each month we meet for breakfast at the Denny’s on Watson Road in Sunset Hills at 08:30. Visit our website at https://www.slsrc.org for details and other activities related to the Club.
We thank you for your support with your membership in 2020.
