D.E.A.R.S. Meeting & Events

The September D.E.A.R.S. Club Meeting will take place on
Wednesday, September 14, at 6 pm.

There will be a VE Test Session at 5 pm prior to the meeting.

If you would like to obtain an amateur radio license or you are looking to upgrade your current license, please feel free to come at 5 pm to take the appropriate test. We will have all levels of testing available.

Our special guest speaker this month will be John Mulhall, Communication/Warning Coordinator for the Orange County Fire Rescue Department Office of Emergency Management. He is an interesting speaker and I know you will enjoy his presentation. Let’s show our D.E.A.R.S. support for John.

The September meeting and VE Test Session will be held in the Players Conference Room at Disney’s All Star Resort. Directions to the location are as follows:

Disney’s All Star Resort Cast Services Building
1601 West Buena Vista Drive
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
Players Conference Room

Follow Buena Vista Drive through the light by McDonalds. Take your first right onto Showtime Drive (if you get to the Security Guard Shack, you have gone too far!). Stop at the security camera kiosk, push the button to alert security and show a photo ID (can be a drivers license or cast ID) to the host or hostess via the security camera. Let them know you are there to attend the D.E.A.R.S. Club meeting. The gate to your right will open. You may park in any of the visitor (or open) parking spaces available.

Enter the Cast Services Building through the covered entrance and double glass doors. Turn left and follow the hallway to the end and turn left again. The Players Conference room is on the right.

We will be monitoring the 147.300 pl103 repeater and the 442.000 D-Star repeater. If you have made it to the McDonalds at All Star and are having trouble finding us, just give a call on 146.52 simplex.

The monthly “Chat and Chew” will be at the McDonalds located prior to the All Star entrance. Someone usually arrives at McDonalds between 4 and 4:30 pm.
