NEWs and UpComing Events
The Sevier Amateur Radio Club "Open Shack" held a successful meeting the 14th of September 2019 at the Mountain View Park, located on 220 South 300 West here in Monroe. There was demonstration on a variety of "preparedness / self reliance" items. There was HF Radio set-up and antenna configuration training, Amateur Radio licensing questions answered, C.E.R.T. introduction, a "fox hunt", Sevier County Sheriff's "communication trailer" on display, preparedness displays and training, that included everything from solar energy, water filtration, fire starting, and outdoor cooking. Lunch was served from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. with a delicious assortment of "potluck" dishes to go along with the chicken supplied by the club. In attendance were 25 adults that signed in as well as other children and adults who didn't sign in. If you were unable to make this one we look forward to seeing you next time.
