The Winlink 2000 system at N4SER is QRT due to a blown TNC.
To get back on the air we need a replacement TNC.
If you have one you’d like to donate or would like to sponsor a new one please let Den W2DEN know.

Rotor is fixed!
Thanks to Bill, Bill, Rich, Net and Den the SERC Rotor at the Red Cross building is fully functional
Some of you may remember when SERC was an active Skywarn Club (www. skywarn.com), it was a few years ago. There is interest in once again participating in Skywarn. The West Central Florida Group (NI4CE) has the Skywarn nets well covered but there are few, if any, trained Skywarn volunteers in our area.
… SERC would like to sponsor a Skywarn Class sometime in the next year. You must be trained in order to participate!
If anyone would like to volunteer to set up the class with NOAA please contact Al (KI4YEH) or drop an e-mail to SERC@N4SER.org
A nice write up in the Florida’s West Coast Region Red Cross July Newsletter on our Field Day operations:
Office for Radio Field Day
The American Red Cross can turn to our amateur radio operators
if we lose communications in our area after a storm. The Sarasota Emergency Radio Club worked out of the Sarasota office to participate in the annual 24 hour Amateur Radio Field Day training. The event involves more than 35,000 certified operators in the US and Canada.
The group was busy logging contacts with other operators throughout the field day. Other local radio groups were set up at different locations in our area. In addition to being vital in emergency situations, users also enjoy the recreational aspect of radio.
FIELD Day 2013 Report:
This was the best field Day I have yet to attend at the Red Cross Building.
We operated 2F WCF with a GOTA station. Modes: CW, SSB, PSK and RTTY. Good fun!
Final score: 1,910 … Good job to all who participated!
