With the arrival of spring, we experienced a severe weather event on April 15th that…
Since our last post, we sold all TARC Inventory that was put up for sale, securing revenue for the Thibodaux Amateur Radio Club as well as making room at the Property Manager’s QTH.
Our thanks go to Jason, KG5VHT, and Clarence, KC5FTL, for their participation in this endeavor.
Our next inventory objective is to facilitate evaluation of the “electric” side of the 5KW Onan Generator by a qualified technician before any revenue is invested in repairing the diesel engine.
We have been experiencing an outage of our primary club repeater, 147.390+ (tone 114.8) in Gray, LA for the past two weeks due to an air conditioner outage, the repair of which has been out of our control. This outage is scheduled to be rectified on Monday, April 24, 2018, with the warranty installation of a new Crosley 220 volt unit at the site at approximately noon. In the meantime, we have been using the secondary repeater, 147.300+ (tone 144.8) repeater in Theriot, LA, and will provide sufficient notice via email, Facebook, and Twitter when the Gray repeater is back online.
Soon to come is our new W5YL.org website that is very similar to the existing website, but with some new information and a whole new look. We will send an email when this new site has been published.
