President’s Remarks

We had a great 4th of July complete with a grilled steak. I hope your 4th was as great!


Field Day was a tremendous success!  I want to thank Bob Nelson for taking care of the nitty gritty of setting up the computers to capture the activity and then processing the data for submission to the ARRL.  Bonnie did a terrific job coordinating the meals.  Jack Gordon brought in a trailer with a support for the 2M and 6M antennas.  Also, I want to thank Bob Sunbury the Tabernacle Emergency Management Coordinator for allowing our use of the Tabernacle Emergency Services Building as our Field Day location.  All of us that were able to come had a great time from setting up the antennas on Thursday, testing radios on Friday and operating on Saturday and Sunday.


Finally, I want to thank our service members who are fighting in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere.  And, thank all of those members serving and ready to react around the world keeping this country free.


Lance KC2MTO


Our best wishes for a happy birthday go out to Bob, K2QPN, and Lance, KC2MTO.


I received the following email from Jack, N2VW.  If you have any interest you can call Bill at the number listed.


Yesterday I got this Facebook message from Karin Veneziale.  I worked with her and her husband, Fred, at Burlington County Trust Co. years ago.  Fred passed away a year ago.


Do you know any ham radio operators? I have towers, brand new ham radio antennas, radios and misc. equipment to sell.  I don't want strangers coming to the house unless they are recommended by someone I know.


If you’re interested please give her a call at (609) 859-9681.  Please leave her a message or you could chat with her on Facebook.


If you have any questions give me a call, (856) 236-1567.

Upcoming BCRC Events

Carranza Special Event Station

Here is your opportunity to be at the bottom of a pileup.  Running from July 7th to the 13th any member can activate N2M and you have your choice of band, mode and times.  There is a need for all members to make at least one contact and support the club’s activities. If you do not have a station of your own, contact any member who will be active and I am sure that he/she will help you make contacts. Bob, K2QPN, has given out, and will give out again, cheat sheets for suggestions you can say about the event as well as suggested frequencies.


Summer Sizzler

Come join the fun and comradery along with the good food at the Summer Sizzler on July 20th at 9:30 at our usual place, the Diamond Diner on Route 38 in Hainesport.
