President Dave Rathke, WB4OHV

As President, I would like to welcome you to the FMCA-ARC website.  This is just another one of our available tools to keep up on club activities and news.  You might be looking for future dates and locations for rallies or get togethers or see what and where we have been in our archives. 

We use HF nets three days a week.   Echolink is on Tuesday evenings and now we also use a video conference on Thursday evenings.  This video session is to discuss more technical issues.  All schedules are covered in the "Nets" section.

If you are a guest, feel free to look around and get an idea of who we are and what we are all about.  Perhaps you will become a part of the FMCA-ARC chapter soon.  We have a fine group of members that do a lot of work.




Vice President Doug Borko, NZ2W

The FMCA-ARC provides the perfect blend for those of us who are afflicted with both the love of the adventure of the Motor Home lifestyle and with Amateur Radio.  You will find that this Chapter of the FMCA provides you with Radio-centric activities and education.  This combination of passions is what drew me to join this Chapter when we acquired our first motor home,

As your Vice-President I pledge to continue advocating that this Chapter provide the absolute best support of both endeavors.

If we have yet to hold a face-to-face QSO, I look forward to that day.  In the meantime, hope to see you down the coax.


Treasurer Karla Dayhuff, K4KLD

As your Treasurer, I will maintain detailed accounting of the Amateur Radio Chapter's funds, including documentation for expenditures and/or deposits to the General Treasury or Rally fund.

Secretary Karen Hamilton, WB5UFM

As secretary, my responsibilities are:

Keep accurate and updated records, submit all required reports to FMCA in a timely manner, attend and take minutes for all executive board meetings and general business meetings, and publish minutes in the Transmitter.

National Director Ned Boston, K8RZA

The role of the National Director is to serve as a liason between the National Office of FMCA and the Chapter. The National Director of each Chapter, together, are members of the Governing Board.  Under the FMCA Constitution, the Governing Board has the final say on governance. Governing Board meetings are held each year during the Summer International Convention.

Alternate National Director Lee Nugent, N5LN

My role as Alternate National Director is to attend the National Governing Board meetings if the National Director is unable to attend.  I encourage all members to attend our ARC Chapter Rallies.  And also attend as many National and Regional rallies as you can.  It is fun to have "eyeball" QSO's with other Hams from all over the country & especially those who also enjoy the RV'ing lifestyle.  If you are planning to attend a Regional or Area rally somewhere, please let the Rally Planning Committee know about it.  You might be able to have a mini FMCAARC Rally there!

How many people in the country even know what an "Eyeball QSO" is, anyway?  Hi, hi. 

73's to all
