On May 3rd, new FCC regulations on RF exposure became effective. The basics of RF exposure is incorporated into the technician class licensure exam. How many years has it been since you passed the technician exam? Learn about the changes to FCC regulations and how to evaluate your station at the August 11, 2021 TCARA meeting with a presentation on RF evaluation. The process is not as hard as you think if you understand it.

Great News! Tim, N6DLC has Received his USPS Snail mail in Fort Mohave Az.

Our Secretary Kathi KD6CAF received a phone call from a very excited Tim Adams about finally Receiving his USPS deliveries to his new address in Fort Mohave. Those that have been following Tim’s saga of “Your Address doesn’t exist” that Tim has been suffering through will understand the story and surely be as excited as Tim. Congratulations Tim, on finally being accepted in the Arizona postal Family. We are grateful that the Western Arizona Amateur Radio Club is far more inviting than your local Post Office. BTW, amazon (as always) does know Tim’s new address!

Yes I know this is not radio related BUT as Tim is our IT officer and is still an Officer in GOTAhams. We decided to share this with Tim’s “Zoom Family” that has been following his challenges during the recent relocation.
