CODE Practice Sessions

code key 1We will operate Tuesday,Thursday, and Saturday evenings at 7PM until 8PM. The Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon has graciously offered the use of their repeater [147.420/146.475/107.2 pl]. This is an odd offset repeater and anyone needing help setting up their radio to make use of this repeater can call Terry, K6TRY for assistance, 619-447-3237.

75 Ohm Coax???

Most newer hams may not know that 75 ohm coax was in use by hams long before 50 ohm coax was popular. And at one time, the two different types were used interchangeably because the output tanks on the old tube transmitters would load into almost anything with an impedance around 12-150 ohms.


IRS: Six Shooters Finally Receives 501(c)(3) Status!

sd6shooters old largeI am extremely delighted to tell you that the San Diego Six Shooters ARC has just received the IRS declaration of being a 501(c)(3) tax deductible, tax exempt charitable organization. 

What this means is that SDSSARC is now qualified to receive tax deductible gifts, bequeaths, devises, and transfers under Section 2055, 2106 or 2552 of the Code.

We are a public charity and therefore are able to exercise all rights and activities under this highest charitable classification.  Very few other clubs in America have this status.

After 17 months of chasing this, with the expertise and help of Randy, KJ6JAJ, I feel that my optimism has been vindicated and that we have won this for the benefit of this great club.  I was told we would not get this highest level of charitable status, but there is no quitting, and we pressed ahead. 

Please pass the word that money, equipment, even property can be given to SDSSARC and a tax deductible receipt issued to the donor.

Thanks again to Randy Hamud, ESQ (KJ6JAJ).  I am excited about future of SDSSARC.  See you on the 17th of March, one week from today!

73 and Straight Ahead!
