3) For a list of 2015 hamfests, click on the link at the top left side of this page.  The list will be expanded as information becomes available.


4) On April 16th Wayne Fox, KE9P, will be hosting the monthly Hendricks Regional Health Hospital Simplex Net on 147.570 MHz.  Bill Gouge, AA9EG, will be hosting the IU West Hospital Simplex Net also on 147.570 MHz.  The Net starts at 9:30 am. This Net is to check the radio performance and capability on a simplex frequency throughout Hendricks County as well as surrounding counties from both Hendricks Regional Health and I-U West hospitals. When called upon during an emergency or disaster, these stations will be a valuable asset to Hendricks County. All ARES members and non-members are encouraged to check-in.


5) On April 21, 2015 Jay Wright, KK9L, will be hosting the Monthly ARES Tuesday Night Simplex Net on the 146.570 MHz. The net starts at 8pm - right after the regular Tuesday Night ARES Net. This net is to check the performance and capability of our radios in Hendricks County as well as surrounding counties when called upon during an emergency or disaster.  All ARES Members and Amateurs are "highly" encouraged to participate.


6) It is that time of year again!!! The Hendricks County ARES Leadership needs to update the records. Let us know if you are a member of Hendricks County ARES and have experienced a change in he past year of license class, address, phone number, NIMS Certifications, added a base, portable or mobile radio. We also need to know if you operating privileges have changed to give you access to HF frequencies. Please email Ken Kayler KC9SQD at kakayler64@hotmail.com with this new information so he will be able to modify the records. There is a nice training opportunity on HF bands on April 19, for those of you first licensed in 2013 and later. The Rookie Roundup, single-sideband version, is explained on the arrl.org web site. This is a relaxed and fun event and I urge you to check it out – rookies can work anyone, and non-rookies can work rookies to help them learn the ropes. With a Tech license, you can be on 10 meters. Perhaps there’s a way we can match up members who want to participate but don’t have the right rig, with those who do have a HF radio.
