The Rimlink constellation, the Mt Ord spoke of the Shawlink constellation, and the Ord-500 UHF node of Northlink are disabled indefinitely until the Mt Ord site generator or grid power is restored again. No projected schedule on either solution, yet.
The 2100 Net will likely be suspended until then, too. I don't speak for the 2100 Net leadership, though.

Well the campout seemed to go well. However, only 3 people showed up. So we didn't have the class while in the field.
So we will have the rest of the class the next two meetings unless we can condense it down to one more meeting. The questions that the current class has, have all been awesome, so I am highly encouraged by this fact.
If you can make it to the next meeting then please do.
On Saturday April 26th, the Club will be conducting our annual trip to the Titan Missile Museum South of Tuscon. The world's largest HF Discone Antenna open to hams is located in the parking lot and is a military relic from the Cold War. it is maintained by the Green Valley Amateur Radio Club.
We are in need of 4 to 5 hams to act as lead operators for the American Red Cross at their Grand Canyon Chapter located near I-17 and Bethany Home Rd in Phoenix.
These hams will become familiar with the equipment and procedures of the chapter so that during emergencies and drills they can walk in, turn on the radios and get them on the air. The hams could be activated not only for emergencies in Maricopa County but for emergencies in the other 9 counties the chapter supports. The hams will only be activated when ham radio communications is needed.
