Ride to the Summit

No Comments

On October 5th, 2013 the Harlan County Amateur Radio Club was involved in providing communication for the Cumberland Tourism, which held the 1st Ride to the Summit Bicycle Ride in which over 30 riders from other, more level, areas of the state and some from Knoxville, TN came with their bicycles to ride. The event started at 8 am in Cumberland and went to Loyall, then back through Cumberland and on to the top of Big Black Mountain then back down the steep mountain grade to Cumberland which was approximately a 70 mile trip.  There were members of the Harlan Club stationed along the route to call in as bikes arrived and departed from SAG (Support and Gear) Stations along the route, which had water, snacks, and restrooms available.  All bikes and Amateur Operators concluded around 3:30 pm and the sponsors had dinner for everyone and a debriefing was held.  There were no incidents and everyone including Hams had a great time.

Communications were handled as training for ARES with a Command Post established.  Communication was done via the Harlan and Black Mountain Repeaters.

ARES Members working the event were:

4. KE4OZR station David has volunteered to help cover 20 – 10 meters.

These hamfests are closer than the one on the other side of Lexington, and are inside.  I went to Huntington last year and it was a good one.

May KMARC Meeting

KMARC Members,

For those of you who weren’t at the last club meeting, we have decided to hold the next meeting at Carr Creek Lake at the shelter area near the Dam/Spillway in Sassafras. It will be held on Monday, May13th at 6pm. We will be cooking out and need to take a count of how many people will be coming so those of us bringing food will know how much to bring. Below is a list of people who have signed up to bring items to the cookout. If you would like to bring something, please send me an email at darianwilliams(at) and I’ll keep the list updated so everyone can see who is bringing what. If you’re not able to bring something but plan to attend, drop me an email as well so we’ll know how many to cook for. If my memory serves me correctly, I think we agreed that everyone would be responsible for their own drinks. We’d like for everyone to reply by Wednesday, May 8th, that way we have plenty of time to get the food.

Rick King – Meat

Jim Osborne – Potato salad

John Farler – Chocolate cake

Jimmy Hatton – Baked beans and buns

Johnnie Brashear – Charcoal, foil, paper plates, and plastic utensils.

Club Provides New Transceiver to Jackson NWS

No Comments

The Kentucky Mountains ARC recently provided a new Yaesu FT-2900 two meter transceiver for the National Weather Service at Jackson to use in place of its many years’ old Kenwood. The rig has more than twice as much power as the old one, and is already programed with Region 4 and other nearby repeaters that the Station can access from their mountain top location near Jackson.

It is also pretty easy to program, and club members have the data cable and software to easily put new frequencies in. One help in hectic times at the rig is the actual name or location in the transceiver readout, instead of having to remember the frequencies of each one, or look them up.

Tony Edwards, the Warning Meteorologist at Jackson sent the picture showing the station setup for WX4JKL, (l-r) Meterologist Buddy Whorrall (KF4PQY); Tony Edwards, KJ4FYM; and the Station manager Shawn Harley, KF4NIH.

The Station Tech, Tim Stanley, KF4ERJ, was home with a broken arm and couldn’t be in the photo.  Tony passed along the following, “I got our new 2m hooked up the other day and she works great! We really appreciate the radio and everything you all do during times of severe weather. Please pass along our gratitude to the club!”

Don’t forget the Skywarn training available from JKL NWS in your area. The schedule and much, much more can be found at the NWS JKL site
