What Happened at the 2015 Dayton Hamvention?
“Hamvention is the world’s largest Amateur Radio convention, and 2015 was my 36th trip there. I’ll talk about what was new and the trends happening in Amateur Radio as shown there; also about the future of the Dayton Hamvention and the venue where it has been held since 1962. I’ll have lots of photos for you to see and give you a glimpse of the new Dallas Ham-Com as well.”

“I See What You Mean”
Karen Anderson, KEØCDQ
Karen is a Ham Operator who is blind. She is a Net Controller for the Wednesday evening LARC nets. At the June 10 LARC Club meeting Karen will be showing us how she is able to keep in touch with the nets and read our emails and the notices to be given to all of us on her nets.
Please come to the meeting and learn how our blind friends are able to communicate easily by being Ham Operators.

Lancaster County Emergency Management
Jim Davidsaver, Director
“For the April meeting of the Lincoln Amateur Radio Club, I plan to provide an overview of Emergency Management in Lancaster County. I have a presentation that touches on the history of Emergency Management in the USA; mentions the 5 mission areas of Emergency Management; explains FEMA’s 15 Emergency Sup-port Functions (ESFs); explains the activation and operation of our Emergency Op-erations Center (EOC); tells about our current inventory of equipment and re-sources and our new Salamander credentialing system; and predicts what the future holds for Emergency Management, including social media.”
