APRIL MEETING will be held on ZOOM

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic the April meeting will be held online using ZOOM. Instructions will be forthcoming by email to 2020 members and 2019 members who have yet to renew.

  • The May 2nd breakfast and board meeting tentatively will be held by teleconference at 8:30 AM that morning.
  • Two new days for the 2 meter OCARC nets have been established to supplement the existing Wednesday night nets. For as long as this Corona virus crisis is going on, we will now have 2 meter nets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 8:30 PM, still using 146.55 MHz FM simplex. This is to support each other, keep in contact, and to build friendships and camaraderie during these difficult times. Net control will be Corey KE6YHX with the club callsign of W6ZE.
  • DUES ARE PAST DUE. OCARC allows a 3-month grace period to renew your membership, which ended March 31. Please renew your club membership by PayPal !
