DEARS Net 10/26/16 147.300+ 103.5pl

Yes, it is once again time for the monthly D.E.A.R.S. Net. This prestigious monthly event will take place on Wednesday, October 26 at 7 pm.

Please join Net Control and the amazing Bruce Keller (K4BAK) who so wondrously runs our Net. Please do not just listen – check in and say hello. We would love to have ham radio operators from everywhere give us your call sign and let us know you are a part of our monthly Net.

That’s Wednesday, October 26. Be There!!

We will begin at 7 pm EDT on frequency 147.300 PL 103.5.

I will not be able to join the Net this month as I will be on the Disney Dream sailing to the Bahamas and Castaway Cay. I will, however, be thinking about all of you and anticipating a report of a multitude of check-ins to support the Net.

Our next D.E.A.R.S. Event will take place on Sunday, November 6. We will be a part of Florida Hospital’s Cycle the City ride to fight childhood cancers. This is an inspiring ride to provide children a fighting chance to beat cancer through the Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Program at Florida Hospital for Children.

We will be taking the D.E.A.R.S. van and providing communications for this event. Our assigned location is Rest Stop 4:

Gilbert Park Mt. Dora, 310 South Tremain St., Mt. Dora, FL 32757

This is the Intersection of South Tremain Street and Liberty Avenue – Located across from the Marina.

Our start time is 8:00 am and we should end at approximately 1:00 pm although anyone who has previously worked this event knows we could be there later depending on when the last cyclist arrives at our Rest Stop.

Please come out if possible and support this worthy cause with us. This will also count toward VoluntEAR hours for Disney cast members.

I hope to see a lot of D.E.A.R.S. Club Members there!!
