Come join us on Sunday, March 25 for the 2018 Tour de Cure Bicycle Event. The D.E.A.R.S. van will be located at Rest Stops 3/4 to provide any needed communications.
The bicyclists are always so appreciative of our attendance and some stop by to talk about amateur radio and look at our van.
We are to be at the location at 7:30 am and will stay until the last rider has completed his/her journey through our rest stop.
I am attaching a map to show the exact location and the roster.
If you are available any time during the day, please come show your support. This will also count toward volunteer hours.
I hope to see you all there!!

The March D.E.A.R.S. Club Meeting and V.E. Test Session will take place on Wednesday, March 7, 2018.
V.E. Test Session begins at 5:00 pm
D.E.A.R.S. Club Meeting begins at 6:00 pm
V.E. Test Session will be held at 5 pm and is open to anyone who would like to obtain or upgrade their ham license. This includes all levels of licensing. You do not have to be a D.E.A.R.S Club member to attend the V.E. Test Session or the Club meeting. We invite everyone to attend.
Our guest speakers this month are Fred (AB1OC) & Anita (AB1QB) Kemmerer from New Hampshire. They are avid ham radio operators and will be sharing with us their DXpedition to Bora Bora. You don’t want to miss this presentation! Let’s show our support for ham radio by having a large attendance for this meeting.
The meeting and V.E. 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) 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.
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 “Chat and Chew” will be at the McDonalds located prior to the All Star entrance. Someone usually arrives between 4 and 4:30 pm.
See ya real soon!!!
