I’m excited to announce there will be a Laurel VEC Test Session on Saturday, July 31st, at 10 am. The Test Session will start promptly at 10 am, so please show up around 9:30 – 9:45, to fill out paperwork.

The address is 3330 Dr. Nichols Rd., York, SC 29745. This is just off Parham Rd., the Bethel VFD is on your left, a BIG RED Building. Go past the FD and park in the second parking lot on the left. There is a Well House in the parking lot, park near there. I’ll have signs up. DON’T PARK IN FRONT OF THE BIG ROLL UP DOORS!  Thank you!
Go to www.w4cq.org/upgrade and read the page to see the following.  You’ll need:
  • A copy of your FCC License if upgrading.
  • A government-issued photo ID, like a State Driver’s License.
  • Your FRN for the Laurel Form 605, which will be filled in at the exam session.
  • ONLY non-memory calculators allowed. Any questions, just ask.
Again, the Test Session starts at 10 am, so come by 9:30 – 9:45 to fill out paperwork. I’ll be there way early to set up tables and chairs. If you need directions, I’ve listed my info below.
I’ll send out a group email prior to the Test Session. Study hard, and good luck..!! Stay safe, 73 Jeff KA4WYC

Hey everyone, I’m Excited to tell you that W4CQ will be on the air for the 2021 Field Day at our Club Station, W4CQ. It will be on a limited basis. We will set up around 12 noon, and start operations at 2pm. We’ll go till 7pm on Saturday. Then, start back around 7am, till 2pm on Sunday, at which time we’ll tear down, and clean up.

We’ll be limited to 2 people in the building at a time, 1 Operator and 1 Logger. We’ll also have a “Get On The Air”, GOTA Station, Callsign WB4ETF, in memory of Fran, a Founding Member, outside for others to use. The restrooms will be available on the ground floor across from the Club room. Again, while in the Building, please wear a mask.

The GOTA Station will be a IC 706 in a Go Box, made by Joe, KJ4QFV, tnx Joe..! Inside the Club Station will be a IC 7300, with a Wire and Beam antennas. The GOTA station will have some kind of Vertical or Wire strung up along the fence. Any suggestions?? At some time we’ll order pizza and drinks for Club Members and visitors. You must sign up to operate in the Club Station. Masks are required while in the Salvation Army’s Building and Club Room. Outside, masks are up to each individual’s personal discretion.
