Join me for this fund raiser for our local San Benito County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue.
I am looking forward to seeing you there.
I just finished up helping out at the Hollister Airshow, Fathers Day weekend. I had a great time. If you were there, did you see the rocket car? My Grandson said it was spitting out fire. The planes were amazing. The pilots made them seem like they were floating while doing some intricate and dangerous maneuvers. The salute to all lost Airmen and Eddie Andreini was also very moving. The Boy Scouts of Troops 777, 787 and 486 did a wonderful job, during the tribute with all the flags. Some wonderful people helped out volunteering their time and efforts. My wife Cathy and I were working with the SBCARA group. It is a wonderful family type venue. and made for a great family afternoon. I hope you can join us there next year and if you attended this year please comment on what you enjoyed doing while you were there.
Once again with Ray Rojas of Realty World-Cornerstone Properties and Kirk Hamrick of KION Television, I am leading the advertising and promotion of the 2014 Hollister Airshow as a volunteer. There will be Planes, Motor Cycles and a Jet Car – By-plane race. It will be a great Father’s Day Weekend activity. Check out the attached flier or go to www.HollisterAirshow.com or Facebook.com/HollisterAirShow for more detail and to purchase tickets.
In addition to helping to promote the show I also with my wife, Cathy, will assist in providing radio communication at the Airshow through my association with SCBARES, San Benito County Amateur Radio Emergency Service. Look for me in my bright yellow vest and my radio communication ear phones.
See you there, Jack Kirk

My wife Cathy and I have enjoyed obtaining our Technician Class Amateur Radio (HAM) license. I am KJ6AMZ and Cathy is KJ6AMY. In April we will attempt to obtain our General Class Amateur Radio (HAM) license which will allow us a wider radio experience.
A great way to obtain your Amateur Radio License, many times referred to as HAM Radio, is by visiting the following site: http://baears.com/info.php We attended a Baers license class and in one Saturday were able to obtain our Technician Class License. After obtaining our license we were mentored by many helpful and friendly local “HAM’s”.
In June of 2009 my wife Cathy (KJ6AMY) and I (KJ6AMZ) obtained our Amateur Radio License also referred as HAM Radio License. We have enjoyed connecting with other Ham’s in the Morgan Hill, Gilroy, San Martin, Monterey and Hollister areas. We hold a Technician Class license and will be testing for a General Class license in April 2010. I originally obtained my Novice Class License (WN6HXV) when I was 15 years old but later allowed my license to expire. Things have changed technically since my days as a Novice transmitting CW.
Through the use of a local repeater and IRLP I was able to take to my son in Provo, Utah with my YAESU FT-60.
HAM Radio operators, besides being experimenters, provide communication service during emergencies. They work closely with the Red Cross Emergency services.
