Welcome to Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon's (ARCEC) website.
The objectives of the Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon, Inc. (ARCEC) are to encourage the furtherance of amateur radio and allied interests; to foster public service by the
amateur radio community; the development of acquaintances; to increase our technical skills and knowledge of electronics as well as good operating practices for the increased
enjoyment of amateur radio as a hobby. After all what you put into Ham Radio is what you get out of it. Volunteer as much as you can. It is a lot of fun to see all the smiles.
ARCEC is an Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) special services club and we are a member of the San Diego Amateur Radio Council, Inc. (SANDARC). Club members are encouraged to be members of the ARRL as well as the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES). Many of our members also participate in the Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) and VIP Red Flag Patrol (CAL Fire).
Program for January 8, 2015
All About the hy-gain th-3jrs antenna!
The January club meeting presentation will be given by our President, Dave Ward - KD6DW. The topic is the hy-gain TH-3JRS tri-band HF (10M,15M,20M) 3 element beam antenna. This antenna is the one that was used on top of our club's antenna tower trailer at the Fry's Operating day in December. Wait! There's more! After the presentation every one attending can actually work together to recondition the TH-3JRS antenna. All the required hardware will be available for the reconditioning task ( and even the Instruction Manual! ). Bring your tools and/or tool boxes and maybe a multi-meter or two and join the fun! Refreshments will also be served! All members and visitors are welcome.
