Keeping equipment and home safe from lightining is the topic of the next Cedar Creek Amateur (ham) Radio Club meeting. President Charles Wells will present videos and live demonstrations on how to construct antennas that are not lightning magnets and how to construct a grounding system for the home, antennas and a short-wave system.

The meeting starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 13 at the Mabank Café on Hwy 198. The club meets there the second Saturday of each month. Many come early for the breakfast buffet. Anyone interested in technology is welcome.

The Cedar Creek ARC has over 40 members from the tri-county area. It maintains a VHF and UHF repeater system that provide hand-held radio coverage to hams in the lake area and mobile and base coverage throughout the three counties. CCARC participates in the National Weather Service SKYWARN program and the Amateur Radio Emergency Service. The club also provides classes to those wishing to join the ranks of Amateur “ham” Radio. There no longer is a requirement or test for Morse code. For more information visit www.k5ccl.org.
