Repeater Move 2015
On August 8th, 2015, members of the Huber Heights Amateur Radio Club (HHARC) gathered to move both our repeaters from the equipment rack that had been its home for a number of years, to the new rack system to make it consistent with our host layout plan in the radio room.
The club would like to give thanks all that helped, either directly or with other support, to make this move happen, particularly Glenn W8AK.

“Field Day 2015″ – June 27
The Huber Heights Amateur Radio Club operated from Cottonwood Park on Fishburg Rd in Huber Heights on Field Day 2015. The following is from Stan Leeds, KC7EHJ, speaking about the club’s experience on Field Day, June 27, 2015:
“Folks started showing up around 9am to get things setup with operations commencing at 2pm local. The weather was pretty chilly, wet and windy. We operated until around 10:15 pm when it was decided most of us had been out for a little over 12 hours, and with no relief operators, we would tear-down and go home.
I think this was a more successful event compared to last year due to the fact we took better time to erect antennas that we knew were tried and true and we didn’t have the underground high power lines that was experienced last year in the parking lot causing interference.
We basically had 5 operators, on and off, on 3 to 4 radios with a rough count of 64 contacts. Yes, it was low, but there was good education and experience learned this time around.
So quick thanks to:
Jane KD8UPX & Gwynne KD8UZV for their FT897 setup, Buddipole antenna, generator and bean soup.
Ron N8VAR for his Ten Tec and 40/80 meter dipole and all around troubleshooting and his tarps for wind and rain break walls. I know you didn’t get a chance to operate as much as you wanted, but your help was greatly appreciated.
Sam W9SAM for his FT-857 and inverted V antenna.
Tom KD8LVS for his sausage and dogs with outstanding grill skills.
Al KA8IPO for the QRP station and solar cells that didn’t work out too well for the weather.
Larry N8QNM for the HUGE Kenwood banner used as a wind break and Information Stand brochures.
Thanks to all who visited and helped out!”
