If you are an Amateur Radio Operator or are interested in what Ham Radio is all about we invite you to join us anytime from Noon till at least 10pm. We will have demonstrations and hands on exhibits set up including a unique handheld antenna that allows Hams to contact satellites and the International Space Station. There will also be a Get On The Air (GOTA) station that anyone will be able to operate. There will be multiple field antennas set up and antenna and radio test equipment. 

The Hospital is located at 300 Wanda St, Marietta, Oklahoma 73448. For more information contact David Bond cell/text: 817-368-5548 or Don Loving: (580) 221-1894.

I will be operating a single op station in a horse pasture behind my home QTH a few miles NE of Guthrie.  All are welcome to drop by and visit.  Look me up on QRZ or any other database for the address.  If you have kids or grandkids we have lots of animals they can pet.  I will be lightly monitoring 146.52 so I can guide you in the last few hundred yards.

CQ CQ Field Day CQ

The Tri-State Amateur Radio Group will hold this years Field Day Operations, June 22nd & 23rd, in conjunction with the Star-Creek Astronomical Society, at the Selman Observatory, which is located North and West of Mooreland, Ok. During the contest we will be using the call of WW5SKY, Star Creeks club call. 

The facility consists of a learning center with several rooms, which can be used for individual contest stations, a large social area, bathrooms and a complete kitchen area. This area is air conditioned and has lots of space outside to erect antennas. The view is clear in all directions and should lend itself to be a good location for Field Day operations. Now lets just hope that the propagation conditions are better than they have been the past couple of days.

Setup will begin around 10am with the actual contest starting at 1pm. Lunch and supper will be provided by the Tri-State Amateur Radio Group. Everyone is encouraged to bring their favorite non-alcoholic beverage, any radios, antennas and accessories they would like to use. We will be operating CW, phone and other forms of amateur radio communication like PSK-31, Satellite, etc. The site also has Internet throughout the building.

Please click on the following link for directions to the Selman Observatory.

We will be monitoring the 146.625 - 103.5 / 444.875 + 103.5 linked repeater system and the 444.275 + D-Star repeater throughout the event for anyone needing directions or information about the event. 

The Alabaster Caverns are only about 7 miles away and offers a tour of the caves, several hiking trails and many other activities. 

All amateur radio operators, their family and friends and the general public are invited to attend this event. Please feel free to share this information with your friends and amateur radio colleges.

For more information on this event please contact Jay Kruckenberg (K5GUD) at 580-216-4190 or Paul Mitchell (N1AUS) at 580-334-0883.

Do you want your club to grow?

Pretend, just for a moment, you are new to your City.  First time amateur radio visitors may try to find a club or may search for the local repeater listings.

Failing there, the searcher may try to check the local media or check with the local Chamber of Commerce for clubs.

Did the local club announce their meeting in the newspaper?  Was there a press release sent to the radio station?

If the answer was "No", then what chance is there the visitor may discover the meeting time and place?

Did the press release mention the topics of discussion?  If the answer was "No", what chance is there the visitor would be interested in attending?

Did the club send a press release announcing what happened at the club meeting?  If the answer was "No", what chance is there that the public is doing to learn what club projects and activity are occurring?

While there is a LOT of competition for News Editors and Producers eyes, it is guaranteed ... very sure ... 100%  likely ... the press release will never get used, if the press release is not sent.

If your club lacks a public information officer, please reach out to the Public Information Coordinator in your section.  That person wishes to help you get a PIO, but, until one is selected, can help with your press needs.

Do you want your club to grow?

Tulsa Help Wanted

We need help with radio communications. We have a need for Sag drivers and rest stop workers for communications for the Tulsa Tough bike race June 8 and 9. 

"This is a great way to practice your communication skills and help out our community all at the same time," said Nathan Huffstetler, AE5NK.

Sag drivers drive the route looking for bicycles that have broken down, crashed, or just need a ride back. Don't let the gas prices stop you from helping as you will be reimbursed for fuel. It is best if you have a truck or a car with a bike rack for this job. You can work the whole day or part of the day.

Rest stops is an easy job and you get to hang out with rest stop workers and let them know when the first group of bikes comes through and give us updates on supplies as needed. Not all rest stop are open the whole time so, if you can help out the whole day or part of a day, this may fit you.

Are you interested? Register on the link below as well as see the maps of the course. If you're going to help, you may want to print some off just in case.

If you are available and willing to help, not only do I thank you but the organizers of the ride and participants do.
Have questions? Feel free to email me or call.

---  N5GMJ, North Texas Section Manager

Chris Brewer, N5GMJ, of Saginaw, Texas, has been appointed ARRL North
Texas Section Manager as of April 30.  Previous Section Manager, Walt
Mayfield, KE5SOO, of Krum, announced his resignation due to work and
family commitments.  Walt had served as Section Manager since October

NN1N, appointed Brewer after consulting with ARRL West Gulf Division
Director David Woolweaver, K5RAV.

Chris has been an amateur radio operator for 30 years.  He has been a

the position of President of the Tri-County Amateur Radio Club from Aug
-2004 through Aug -2007.  Additionally, Chris is on the Board of
Directors for the Kilocycle Club of Fort Worth and is an active member
of the Texas Interconnect Team.  Chris has operated in just about every

modes: specifically APRS and D-Star on VHF/UHF and PSK and RTTY on HF.
However, he also likes to jump into a good rag chew QSO on HF at times
as well.   Chris was asked to be the Official Observer Coordinator in
January 2013, having served as an Official Observer since 2009.  Chris
will complete the current term of office as North Texas Section Manager
that continues through March 31, 2015.

Walt continues his service to the ARRL as an Assistant Director for the
WGD, and he wishes to congratulate Chris on his appointment.

---  Are You Covered?  What About Your Club?

Given the recent weather that has besieged Oklahoma we want to take
this opportunity to remind you to double check your equipment insurance
coverage. The ARRL began a new partnership with Hays Affinity Group in
2011 to provide its ARRL Membership Equipment Insurance and Club
Liability Insurance plans.  Hays serves as the program administrator to
provide equipment insurance to ARRL members that choose to elect
coverage.  Hays introduced new policies for both plans, underwritten by
the Hanover Insurance Company.

Not only is equipment protection coverage through Hays Affinity Group
slightly less expensive than it was with Marsh, it’s easier to enroll
in the plans. You can sign up online and even schedule your equipment
online, too. With Hays Affinity Group, you can have all your radio
equipment covered, even the computers, hard drives and printers in your
shack. You can also elect to have coverage for your towers and antennas,
up to $15,000 of replacement cost. All losses are settled on the
replacement cost value you have stated for your equipment. In addition,
any newly acquired equipment during the policy term, up to a value of
$2000, will be covered, and once scheduled, until your next policy
renewal without any additional premium. All this -- and more -- with
only a $50 deductible ($25 for repair claims).

Hays will also provide club liability insurance to ARRL Affiliated
Clubs for those clubs that wish to take advantage of that program.
This comprehensive general liability policy provides coverage for
lawsuits resulting from bodily injury and property damage at ARRL
Affiliated Club-sponsored activities. This includes concession stands,
dances, banquets, parties, auctions, raffles, picnics and meetings, to
name just a few. Coverage would also apply for official Club
participation, for instance, participating in a community-sponsored
event. In addition to the policy limits described below, this plan also
pays the court and legal costs of defense for covered claims.  The club
plan reimburses expenses for first aid to others at the time of an
accident and an owner of a premises used or rented by the Club can also
be named as an additional insured.  To learn more about Affiliated Club
benefits visit

--- ARRL Field Day, June 22 – 23, 2013

ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held
annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each
year, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups
or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.  Field Day is
a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an informal contest, and
most of all, FUN!

It is a time where many aspects of Amateur Radio come together to
highlight our many roles. While some will treat it as a contest, other
groups use the opportunity to practice their emergency response
capabilities. It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur
Radio to the organizations that Amateur Radio might serve in an
emergency, as well as, the general public. For many clubs, ARRL Field
Day is one of the highlights of their annual calendar.

The Field Day objective is to work as many stations as possible on any
and all amateur bands (excluding the 60, 30, 17, and 12-meter bands).
Field Day is open to all amateurs in the areas covered by the ARRL/RAC
Field Organizations and countries within IARU Region 2. DX stations
residing in other regions may be contacted for credit, but are not
eligible to submit entries.

The contest part is simply to contact as many other stations as
possible and to learn to operate our radio gear in abnormal situations
and less than optimal conditions.   We use these same skills when we
help with events such as marathons and bike-a-thons; fund-raisers, such
as walk-a-thons; celebrations, such as parades; and exhibits at fairs,
malls and museums — these are all large, preplanned, non-emergency

For more information visit
Director Woolweaver will be visiting multiple Field Day sites in North
Texas.  Vice Director Stratton will be visiting multiple sites in
Central Texas and in the Houston area.
The rest of the West Gulf Leadership will be scattered around the
various Sections and visiting as many locations as they possibly can.
We will look forward to seeing everyone at your local Field Day event!

--- June VHF Contest Coming June 8-10

As summer starts to warm up, the VHF bands will be hot for the 2013
ARRL June VHF Contest, June 8-10. Even with a modest station, it’s
possible to work hundreds of miles on the VHF bands during a good
opening. ARRL Contest Branch Manager Sean Kutzko, KX9X, is a VHF
enthusiast. “The June VHF Contest occurs at the beginning of
summer’s sporadic E season, which can produce intense openings on 6
meters, and even 2 meters,” he said. “With interesting propagation
characteristics like sporadic-E, tropospheric ducting, aurora and even
meteor scatter and moonbounce, VHF offers QSO opportunities that HF can
never satisfy.”

Kutzko explained that getting on the VHF bands can be quite simple,
since many HF transceivers come equipped with at least 6 meters, and
possibly other VHF/UHF bands. This year, the June VHF Contest has two
new entry classes: Single Operator/FM Only and Single Operator/3-Band.
“SOFM” allows 100 W on 6 meters through 70 centimeters using only
FM, while “SO3B” allows 100 W on 6 and 2 meters, and 50 W on 70
centimeters on any mode. Operations for both the new categories must be
conducted from a single fixed location.

You can find plans for simple VHF antennas at the Technical Information
Service area of the ARRL website, as well as in the “Antennas”
chapter of the ARRL Handbook or in the “VHF and UHF Antenna
Systems” chapter of the ARRL Antenna Book. Because VHF antennas are
generally smaller than their HF counterparts, Kutzko said that portable
operation is simple: “You can operate from your favorite hilltop,
campsite or any location with high terrain and make many QSOs. All you
need to know is the Maidenhead grid square of your operating location,
which is the contest exchange. Some grids can be quite rare; if
they’re not too far from you, you might want to consider a portable
operation to a rare square for a chance to be sought-after DX.”

“The weekend promises to be a tremendous amount of fun on the VHF and
UHF bands. Don’t miss out! All amateurs -- from Technicians to Extras,
experienced VHF operators to the first-time VHF dabblers -- can join in
the excitement,” Kutzko said. The ARRL June VHF Contest runs from
1800 UTC Saturday, June 8 through 0259 UTC Monday, June 10 (Saturday
afternoon to Sunday evening for most of the US and Canada). Complete
rules and entry forms may be found here. All logs must be e-mailed or
postmarked no later than 0300 UTC Wednesday, July 10. Questions can be
sent via e-mail to the Contest Branch.
