General News

The Grand Strand Amateur Radio Club has started a series of SIMPLEX radio nets in order to train the emergency procedures that would be needed in a time of degraded communications  operations.  As part of this training, bimonthly 2 meter SIMPLEX nets will be conducted, one at 10:30 AM on the first Saturday of each month and one at 8 PM on the third Monday of each month.  The net will begin on the GSARC Conway repeater (145.110 MHz/85.4) and then move to the chosen simplex frequency.  All amateur radio operators are invited to participate.  We will also periodically conduct both 6 meter and 10 meter nets.  These will also begin on the 145.110 repeater and then switch to the selected frequency.  These nets have no set schedule but will be based on both interest level and available dates.  Please refer to the Events Calendar on this website to see net dates once they are finalized.

Saturday Breakfast

General News
Happy New Year to the Grand Strand Amateur Radio Club!
On Saturday, January 9th, 2016 and until further notice, we will meet for breakfast at Akel's Family Restaurant in Myrtle Beach.  Akel's is located on 17 Business just north of Mr. Fish for those familiar with the area.  The address is 6429 N. Kings Highway MB, SC 29572.
We are fortunate to live in an area with so many fine dining choices and I must say that Golden Corral and Harry's provide a truly excellent breakfast and a fine value.   Feedback on all three places was largely positive and parking and elbow room at Akels was mentioned as a strong plus by many.
A good target time is 7:45.  Past experience tells me half the group will be there before 7:45 and folks are welcome to wander in at any time (8:15-8:30 is fine!).  A few blue hats will serve as a welcoming beacon for all.
Over the next few weeks, let's see how pleased we are with Akels and please let me know your thoughts on this.
