Meeting Schedules:

LAACARC Council Meeting / HAMCON Meeting

INTRODUCTION

We are the Los Angeles Area Council of Amateur Radio Clubs non-profit organization, comprised of delegates representing their respective amateur radio clubs in Los Angeles County (CA).

We share ideas for making better amateur radio clubs. We discuss membership drives, news about amateur radio public service events, speakers for club meetings, sponsoring HAMCON convention every four years, and other issues of in portance to ham clubs such as liability risk management and antenna restrictions.

Organized in 1953, the Los Angeles Area Council of Amateur Radio Clubs has met continuosly to Further  the interests of ham radio clubs in Los Angeles County. If your club is not a member, incourage it to join LAACARC.

Our meetings are the first Tuesday of every other month starting in January. If the meeting falls on a holiday, the date may change by a week.

The Council is supported by annual dues of $20.00 paid by each member club, which selects their delegate and an alternate. Our territory is all of but only Los Angeles County. The function of the Council is to spearhead progress on issues affecting radio amateurs in the Los Angeles Section of the ARRL Southwestern Division.

For example:

The Council provids guidance and input in achieving a ham-friendly antenna ordinance for the unincorporated areas of the county. That ordinance is being used as a guide for numerous city ordinances under consideration.

Council Members own clubs are listed on Google maps

MEETING SCHEDULED

LAACARC Council Meeting:

The next LAACARC meeting will be Tuesday  June 7, 2016

To everyone on the Los Angeles Area Council of Amateur Radio Clubs email list:

Just a reminder....The LAACARC's next meeting is Tuesday April 5, 2016 at 7:30 PM in the Toyota Motor Co. Museum, 19600 S. Van Ness Ave., Torrance, CA

DINNER LOCATION:

The location for our optional pre-meeting dinner is changing to the Sizzler Restaurant, 17544 Hawthorne Blvd., Torrance (southeast corner of Hawthorne and Artesia Blvd across from the South Bay Galleria Mall). I will be there by 5:30 pm (this restaurant is also where the Southern California DX Club holds its pre-meeting dinners and there's a reasonably-priced seniors menu). Some of us indicated they became tired of the Norm's Restaurant further south, so we'll try this Sizzler for a change. Two shopping opportunities are also in the same "strip mall" as this Sizzler for anyone interested: one of the larger Harbor Freight tool stores in L.A. is there in a former 21,000 sq. ft. furniture store and a sizable Designer Shoe Warehouse location is adjacent.

Hope to see everyone there.

Ham Radio History Request:

I'm looking for some historical information about ham radio in LA in 1971. In particular, HF links going to San Jose.

It seems like a strange request, but the younger hams these days don't work HF and I know back then there were a lot of Nets people would check in to (I don't know if they exist still or if they have declined over time or are as active as in the 60s and 70s). Personally, I lack a lot of HF knowledge since I became a ham to do AMSAT stuff. Any information, including possible ARES/MARS work in the LA and southern California to San Jose area would be great.

Thank you,
Chris KJ4DO
