The next E.A.T. meeting (Education And Training) will be held on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 at 7 pm at the Chick-Owa Sportsman’s Club located at 9279 E. Ottogan Street (just west of Winding Creek). The club has purchased a series of instructional electronics videos which are around 30 minutes long.
This month’s video is “Your Future in Electronics” which is the last video in the Understanding Modern Electronics series. After the video Dan Yonker KN8X will have a presentation about a Raspberry Pi sprinkler control system project he’s been working on.
HARC E.A.T. sessions are open to the public and you do not need to be a HARC member or have an amateur radio license to attend. If you have questions about amateur radio equipment, operating practices, licensing, test and measurement, or anything remotely related to amateur radio, this is the place to be.
After years of being with the Yahoo Groups, and after much heartache, the Holland ARC has moved over to the groups.io email list server. Superior service is here.
If you did not get the email on how to sign up, please go to:
From there you will see “apply for membership” icon. Click on that and follow the instructions and we should be good to go.
The archives are available at any time to be read without logging in. Todd, W8YHF ported over thousands of emails from the Yahoo Group.
The Holland Amateur Radio Club is now meeting on a NEW DAY in a NEW LOCATION.

Both our monthly general meetings and our E.A.T. meetings are being held there, as well as “Ham in a Day” and VE sessions. To recap,

On March 28, we lost Ed Heyboer. He had been quietly fighting cancer for a period of time.
What can we say about Ed? Not enough. Always smiling. Always “seeing” things more clearly than most of us. His involvement with the Holland club included the education committee, the Monday night nets, and field day. He was a mentor to many. Ed is leaving a huge void in our lives.
The Holland club extends its sympathies to Mary and his family.
