Vice President

As your new club Vice-President, my duties, as defined by our club By-Laws, includes providing leadership guidance as head of all committees the KCRA finds necessary to form. As of today, the club currently has three formed and functioning member committees consisting of:

1)      The KCRA Technical Team. This committee of sorts provides the necessary manpower to maintain and improve the clubs technical resources such as our repeater systems, as directed by the Technical Chairperson (Jim, KC2LEB). Precise technical knowledge and experience is not required to participate. This popular committee has had much success since its formation last year.

2)      VE Team. This committee provides the resources and experience required to administer FREE exams for the various levels of FCC amateur radio licenses, as directed by the official LARC VEC liaison (Currently myself). An Extra class license is required, as all General class positions are filled.

3)      Licensing Educational Team. This committee provides free licensing courses using the Gordon West “Ham It Up” program and materials. It is currently, but does not have to be, staffed by VE Team members. Extra class license preferred, with limited General class participation.

In the coming months, three additional committees will be introduced. Our Field Day committee will start formation later this month, while a “new ham” Elmer committee will get going in March. Our club anniversary (45 YEARS!) team will plan a shindig. Participation in these team committees is open to each and every paid member of the KCRA that holds at least a technician  class (or higher if noted) license that is capable and willing. I hope you see the value that these teams provide in helping to build a stronger, knowledgeable, and active Amateur Radio presence in New York City. Please contact me directly if you have ideas to offer, or would like to participate. Together as a club, we can accomplish many things.
