Letters from the RACK President

RACK of Knoxville President: Hello Fellow Amateurs,

I hope everyone is staying warm. We have a few events coming up soon and I encourage everyone to support the club events.

First on the calendar is the Moon Run. It is a first time event put on by Wallace Memorial Baptist Church, our host site for our meetings. It is a 5k race that will be held on December 2, 2022, 6pm at Victor Ash park. The RACK van will be there and we need a few RADO's to be on the course to assist in comms with the race director. Since it is an out and back race, will need about 10 people to be on the course course. It will be over by approximately 7:30. The church is so good to us as a club and I really want to support this event and demonstrate our appreciation to them for letting us use their facilities at no charge. All equipment needed will be a portable radio to participate.Please contact me, 865-310-8310, to get you on the roster for the race.

Second is our Christmas party with METERS. It will be at Loui's restaurant on Old Broadway in Fountain City. The time is 17:00- 19:00, December 6, 2022. We will order off a (4)entre menu. If you wish to participate, please bring a wrapped child's gift to be donated to WMBC for them to distribute to the less fortunate children. We have done this for decades and they appreciate our contributions very much. More information will be at the November meeting.

Our November meeting will be on Thursday, 11.17.22, 19:00 at WMBC. Our presentation has been arranged by Seth Eastman, N7LCT, our new Hamfest Director and is a Zoom call on "How to run a Linear Amplifier".

That is all we have at the present time. I hope to see everyone at a meeting soon.

Thanks, and please keep our Military, Law Enforcement and government officials in your prayers.

Jim Norman, N4CFB
