Did you know that you can automatically add events on the RRRA calendar to your own personal calendar? All you have to do is add a subscription to your personal calendar. This is different depending on which calendar you use. You can find specific instructions for your setup through a simple internet search. All you have to do is go to www.rrra.org/calendar/export.ics and download our subscription file. This will automatically add every event from the RRRA calendar to yours.
The Red River Radio Amateurs has launched an emergency communications webpage and corresponding email lists. This webpage contains all RRRA emergency communications related information. There you will find links to register for two new email lists devoted to emergency communications. There is one list for flood related communications and one list for Skywarn related communications. This webpage can be found at www.rrra.org/emergency_communications as well as under the Quick Links menu.
The RRRA list server has been fixed and is fully functional. If you were a member of the previous list server, you should have received several test emails recently and are now subscribed to the new list server. To subscribe to the RRRA List Server go to http://mail.rrra.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/rrra-general. If you are already a member of the list server, you should have received an email with your password to edit your preferences. This password will be sent to you every month as a reminder.
The minutes for the RRRA monthly meetings are now available online. They can be found under the Quick Links menu, by going to the Club Info tab and then clicking on RRRA Monthly Meeting Minutes, or by going to www.rrra.org/minutes.
The W0ILO beacon is now transmitting 140 feet off the ground from the center of Sabin, MN, on the city's municipal water tower. A crew from the club moved the beacon to the water tower Saturday, August 4th, to improve signal strength. Thanks to Randy, "the muscle", KC0KRS; Tiny, "the safety", WB0BIN; Bob, WB0DSF; Al, AI0Q; Paul, KC0TEP; and Mary, KC0TSQ. According to the group, signal strength is now greatly improved and should provide Q5 local coverage over a several county region. For more information on the 10 meter beacon, click here.
