New Calendar of Events Added

calendarI’ve replaced the older calendar of events application that I had been using, with a new version.  I feel the new version will be easier and more intuitive for users to add their own events to the calendar.  All users, who have been bumped higher than the default “subscriber” level, should be able to add their own events.

With this new version, if you have a repetitive event (like a monthly meeting, etc.), you can create the first event, then return back to that event and change the date and click the “COPY” button at the bottom of the input screen.  That will duplicate the entry and place it on the date chosen.  I’ve started entering dates for most of the local ham clubs, but it becomes such mind boring / dumbing work after awhile, that I took a break.  I’ll resume when I have some more spare time.

I will be adding in future public service events as well as posting the info to the BLOG area (where you are reading this article).

Volunteers are always needed, so don’t hesitate about raising your hand. Prior experience is not a requirement, as we all started out with the same amount of experience in the beginning, that being “none”.  We’ll place you in a position or with another more experienced ham, according to your comfort level and equipment abilities.

For example, some events will allow the use of an HT without problems, others won’t.  Some require mobile radio operation for stronger signal / power. Some events require the use of both VHF and UHF frequencies at the same time, such as SAG Van driver teams during the local Tour de Cure (coming up on May 10th) or the Valero Alamo Ride to the River (October 11-12th).   The Fiesta Wildflower 100 ride (April 27th – no SAG vans used) may require the use of mobile radios.  The American Hero 25k Relay run (May 25th) will require mobile radios for support because it will be held this year on the south side of San Antonio, on the campus of Texas A&M University – San Antonio.

If you have any problems with posting events, please contact the webmaster at or call me at 210-771-7075 (voice/text). Please leave a message if I don’t answer and I’ll call you back.

If you are not registered on this site yet, and want to post articles or events, please register as a user, then contact me to have your posting privileges bumped higher.  I’ll only do this for other verified ham radio operators, so use your call sign as your User ID when you register.
