Overdue Coordinations

August 18, 2016

We’ve identified several coordinations (listed below) that are overdue.  Overdue means we’ve not recieved coordination documents from these trustees.  When a repeater coordination status is anything other than “on air” they’re not sent to the ARRL for Repeater Directory listing.  We send annual update forms via US Mail annually to the responsible person listed on each coordination.  If you’re reading this and are responsible for one of these repeaters please contact KØJSC asap.

70cm Band Full In Denver

July 21, 2016

As of the middle of July 2016, the both the 2m and now 70cm band in the front range from Wyoming to New Mexico is officially full and there are no more wideband pairs available. Anyone wishing to coordinate analog repeaters in the area will be asked if they wish to be waitlisted for coordination. The wait time for coordinations on 2 meters is likely 5+ years. The UHF waitlist will be similar, but likely shorter as the restrictions for UHF coordinations are easier.

We apologize for the delay in processing coordinations, but it was inevitable that the bands would fill up. Any other band is wide open at this point for coordinations, consider using a different frequency.

October 21, 2015

Our Fall Meeting for 2015 is now one for the historybooks.  Special thanks to Royal Gorge Amateur Radio Club for access to the Cañon City EOC.  This meeting saw a giant leap forward for our frequency coordination body as the delegates have allowed us to begin using propagation tools to coordinate more difficult cases.

Please find the presentation at the end of the meeting minutes for more information.

At the April 2014 CCARC meeting in Windsor, Wayne Heinen presented a detailed explanation of 501(c)(3) charitable organizations, their requirements as well as do’s-and-donts. The presentation is online here.

I’m sure you’ll find it very handy in understanding the inner workings of a charitable organization and how it affects your club operations.

CCARC Elects a New Frequency Coordinator

October 17, 2013

October 12, 2013, Colorado Springs, Colorado, the CCARC held it’s Fall 2013 meeting sponsored by CMRG, PPFMA and PPRAA at the Falcon Substation of the Colorado Springs Police Department.  The event was a housekeeping meeting where the Frequency Coordinator was elected by as the only person running for the position.  It has been filled by Paul Deeth, WA2YZT who is considered an excellent choice as he’s been a commercial broadcast engineer for 35+ years and is very familiar with commercial coordination in the broadcast arena.   Please take a moment if you see Paul to congratulate him on taking over the remaining months of a vacated position.

Next Spring meeting will be elections for Frequency Coordinator, Secretary and Chairman and a nomination committee has been stood up with Wayne Heinen as the lead.  If you’re interested in any of these positions, please get your qualifications to Wayne Heinen with an indication that you’d like to run for office!

Thanks to everyone that attended the meeting and look forward to seeing you at the next one!
