_Special Event Station - W5BMC - BEARS - Morgan City

Saturday April 16, 2011 on the Bayou Teche in Franklin, La.  Celebrating 
the Bayou Teche Black Bear and Birding Festival.  10 am. to 5 pm, 40m at 
about 7.250 or 20m at about 14.250.  Echo Link will also be accepting 
contacts at W5BMC-R.  QSL will be sent to everyone who contacts us.
Any ham in the area is welcome to stop by the station.
The home base for the club is Morgan City, however membership is made up 
of ham radio operators from throughout St. Mary, Iberia, Lafayette and 
Acadia parishes as well as members from Texas and Florida.
The club's purpose is emergency preparedness and to keep members current 
with current activities, a special Amateur Radio Emergency Service, or 
ARES net, is held every Sunday for members and non-members to check into 
for the latest information. In the last three months, club members have 
been activated on three different nights, monitoring extreme weather 
approaching St. Mary Parish.
The club has been recognized for over 25 years service as an American 
Radio Relay League Affiliated Club and has also been recognized as a 
Special Service Club by the ARRL. This means the club is active in 
community affairs and makes itself available when help is needed. It is 
also available to help anyone interested in becoming a ham radio 
operator by sponsoring classes and test sessions, as testing is required 
to obtain a ham radio license.
There are 26 members of the club. Longevity of member licenses ranges 
from less than a year to over 50 years as a licensed ham radio operator.
Saturday, the station will be set up on the bayou side directly across 
from the Young Sanders Center. The purpose of the station is to first, 
show the public what can be achieved at a portable station, talking 
strictly on a wire antenna. In addition, publicizing the Black Bear 
Festival across the country to ham operators who will be calling in to 
the station on the bayou. Also, an Echo Link station will be receiving 
calls and will be able to show the public just how many stations 
worldwide are listed on Echo Link. This is a combination of digital 
communications tied in with VHF radio.
The public is invited and urged to stop by and visit the station which 
will operate from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Message forms will also be 
available in the event you would like to send someone a message via ham
