Hi Kathy,

Thanks and have a great evening!

President’s report 9-8-19

For the president’s report tonight, I would like to extend a great big THANK YOU to everyone who came out and helped yesterday at Imogene!

We had 1279 runners at the start of the race and I believe more than 1200 actually finished.

I got to work the start with Bill KC0QXX, dropped off Stan W0LQ as the sweep, before heading to the finish, to work with Ken KG0QGK. However some young hams, Roland and Patrick, (I forgot to get their call signs) basically ran the station and did a fantastic job! We are hoping to get them more involved with the club; including have them participate in club meetings and or the net.

Several of the participants shared experiences during the personal comments. Sounds like everyone had a great time. I will post some pictures.

Our meeting will be on the 20th this month. Myron will be doing the program, not sure who has snack.

KC0JEA thanked everyone for the get well card the club sent.

President’s report 9-1-9

Good evening to everyone on the net!

Yesterday was the Colorado QSO. Royce gave us a report on the new antenna they built.

I met Steve K0SX’s XYL Lenie who thanked us for the card the club sent.

Next weekend is Imogene pass run so there won’t be a club breakfast.

Other than that our meeting is Sept 20th this month.

That’s about all.

KK6RNV back to net.

Help support the WWV Centennial Celebration!

Hello Colorado Amateur Radio Clubs!

If you would, please pass this information on to your club members.

Over the weekend of August 24 and 25, special event amateur station WW0WWV plans a trial run and equipment tests for the planned 5-day operation commemorating the 100th anniversary of WWV on October 1, 2019.  We’ll be on the air a limited amount but hope to have a few early QSOs before the main event at the end of September.

We are at a critical time in our preparation and you and your club members can help.  Visit our website, WWV100.com, and consider a tax-deductible donation to help with the expenses of putting on an operation of this scale.  http://wwv100.com/index.php/donate-to-wwv100

The WWV Centennial Committee is thrilled to have operators from Colorado clubs and across the nation coming to Northern Colorado this fall to help celebrate this milestone in radio history.  The project is a collaboration between WWVARC, NCARC, RMHAM, FCCW, and many others.


NIST, US Dept. of Commerce, operators of WWV, have changed their original plans for October 1, and the official ceremony will now be limited to 100 invited guests only.  NIST had originally posted an open house for October 1, but have reconsidered.  This will NOT impact the operations of WW0WWV, and this makes our operations more of the main public face of the centennial celebration.  Our committee hopes NIST will make a formal announcement about their plans soon.

We appreciate the number of operators who have committed their time to come to Fort Collins and operate for the September 28 – October 2 event.  If you can’t join us, please consider supporting the project with a donation:   http://wwv100.com/index.php/donate-to-wwv100

Be sure to visit WWV100.com September 28 – October 1 for our current operating frequencies.

Have a great weekend and 73,

Dave, W0DAS

WWV Centennial Committee
