What’s happening at K6TZ in Carpinteria?

The SBARC open house last Sunday on October 30 held at the Chrisman Channel Islands Center (CCIC) was a howling success!

Thank you all for coming and participating in the tour of the facility, the raffle, and eating the pizza.

The CCIC is the location of our new K6TZ Club Station (K6TZ @ CCIC). We were invited to develop a radio station there in Carpinteria over a year ago by Marla Daily, president of the Santa Cruz Island Foundation and we received a $35,500 grant from Amateur Radio Digital Communications (ARDC) to fund the station With the radios on the air and major construction complete, we are ready to activate the station!

On December 10 & 11, the CCIC will be open for a major fundraising event for the Santa Cruz Island Foundation. Marla has requested that SBARC members be on hand to demonstrate the radio station that is equipped with 2-meter and HF radios and monitors showing the Santa Barbara Channel marine and air traffic.

So, I’m recruiting members for our new K6TZ @ CCIC Committee to operate the station. Instruction and training will be provided by appointment. This is a great opportunity for everyone, including Montecito, Ventura and Carpinteria operators to use the state-of-the-art radio equipment and to put this station to good use.

Please contact me, Dorothy Oksner, K6DSO, at oksner66@gmail.com with your suggestions and willingness to help in any  way that you can, especially for the December 10 & December 11 event.
