Arecent article in the Common Ground magazine published by the Community Associations Institute related some interesting perspectives on HOA living. It defined four types of residents and how they interact with the Board, staff, and the community. While each may require a slightly different approach, it is incumbent on the Board to treat them all as part of the community and seek to educate them about living in an HOA.

One type is a resident who understands the basic aspects of living in an HOA. They appreciate the Board’s complex task to maintain the property and facilities, conserve resources, and balance individual rights with community concerns. They want additional information about the nuances of governing and operating a community. They may serve on a committee or could be a candidate for a Board position.

Next is the one who doesn’t consider themselves to be a part of the community. This is the homeowner who constantly complains and considers the Board an enemy. This resident must still be told the story of community living. And the Board needs to take the time to explain its challenges, decisions, and future plans.

Then there is the largest portion of the community. They are not interested in learning how we operate or in getting involved. They simply want to enjoy their life, their home, and going about their business. The Board must attempt to educate these residents in a straightforward way so they will feel comfortable living here, attending meetings, and voting.

Finally, there is the resident who has just moved into the community. They don’t know anything about Sun City Summerlin yet and may have lots of questions. We need to provide them with the details of monthly fees, bylaws, rules, assessments, amenities, and other aspects of living in an HOA. The Board must introduce new residents to the basic obligations and privileges of living in Sun City Summerlin.

We communicate with our residents in many ways: The LINK magazine; Regular official meetings of the Board and committees; Informal chats with the Board and with Mitzi; Email blasts; Fun events and gatherings; and various clubs and activities throughout the community.

The Vegas of today wouldn’t exist without the mob of yesterday.

The Mob’s influence shaped the city’s earliest development and played a role in its ultimate evolution as the Entertainment Capital of the World. The Distillery Tour & Tasting - Prohibition made it illegal to brew beer or distill liquor, so America’s unquenched thirst for alcohol demanded an underworld solution. The Mob filled the void, smuggling spirits into the country and producing moonshine from hidden stills. Take a journey through Prohibition with the Mob Museum’s Distillery Tours that involves sampling a variety of distilled spirits. As our guest, you will receive a 50ml bottle of the Signature Moonshine to take home! The Mob Museum is surrounded by world class restaurants and unique attractions, guests can combine a trip to the Museum with a chance to experience Downtown Fremont Street. The Museum offers light snacks and coffee, located in the Museum’s 2nd floor concessions.

A Letter To My Dad

Dear Daddy, just sitting down to simply write you a letter; for some reason, I thought, it might make me feel better. Come Father’s Day, seems I find myself missing you more –the man who had raised me, the man I still just adore!

I became very handy - remembering the things I was taught –but there were tools that I ruined when I screwed up and got caught! Your whistling would echo with Irish songs through the halls, and would blare to come in after play at night fall.

When little, there were times you’d gently reach for my hand and into the crowd as we danced to the band.

I remember my peeking through the crack in the door to find you saying your prayers on your knees, on the floor. You suffered through my cooking, eating all that I made, but would give me a quarter if I brought a good grade. You took care of two girls and, back then, not the norm; with God’s grace, we all weathered what we thought was a ‘storm’. There were a few times you succumbed to some tears –but the strength that you showed only grew with the years! My girlfriends would stop to spend time after school; they hung with you, Dad, 'cause they thought you were “cool” You frightened my dates – but that’s what Fathers do; drive-ins never an option – the direct orders from you! At my wedding you, once again, took my hand –time to give me away now to some other man. When your Grandson was born, your face was aglow –how short your time was, well, something no one could know. That terrible Christmas you were taken from me, we came home with your presents still under the tree. Through all of the years you’ve been gone, in my heart, you are always still with me and forever a part –of who I became, now a woman today, “Daddy’s Girl” now and always and forever will stay. You did a pretty good job, though I’ve messed up at times; so now that I’ve come to the end of this rhyme I hope you are proud as I grew up to be strong, and being raised by my Dad was simply where I belonged! So no matter the day, if I hear “Danny Boy” –I still shed a tear, yet my heart fills with joy; I’m a Daddy’s girl and always will be it seems, with my memories and thanks, safely tucked in my dreams.

The Neighborhood Preparedness Team (NPT) is working with Helping Hands of Vegas Valley (HHOVV) to assist HHOVV in bringing Free Ring Doorbells to Sun City residents who qualify and are in need of cameras for safety.

HHOVV is a non-profit whose mission is to improve the quality of life for senior citizens and their families in order to maintain their dignity and independence.

Amazon donated many RING doorbells version 2 and through a grant program HHOVV will provide to homeowners over the age of 60. Due to the generosity of Amazon/Ring, there is no yearly cost for the service. The Ring subscription is lifetime, meaning that clients will never have to pay for the monthly/yearly fee, if they have received the devices from HHOVV.

Clients must have a smartphone, tablet or iPad and agree to download the application; create an account; and use the device as it was intended.

Qualifying for a Ring doorbell is not based on income. The client must be 60+ years old and be the homeowner. This program is on a first come, first serve basis. HHOVV would like to be able to assist as many clients in the Valley within 2

years, more specifically those who are in more vulnerable areas. Not everyone who submits an interest form will be accepted.

HHOVV will provide the installation and assist download of the Ring app with instructions on how to operate it.

OnThe Move

The RV Club was started in 1992 when Del Webb was still building homes in Sun City Summerlin. There are currently 57 Club members. Dave has been a member since 2003. Dean since 2021 and Teresa since 2022.

At the time this article was written, the Club was gearing up for its California Loop Caravan trip, a two-week excursion starting in late April. They visited several places and camped

out for a few days in each site. The first stop was Minden, Nevada followed by Napa Valley, then Monterrey, finishing up on the Central Coast in California. They returned to Sun City Summerlin the second week of May.

During the months of June, July, August, and this year September (most of the Club Board members will be out of town), the Club does not plan any trips. Most of the Club members are away visiting friends and family in other parts of the U.S.

The next trip will be to Prescott, Arizona, October 16th–20th.

The Club is planning their annual Thanksgiving trip as well. This year, they will travel to Willow Beach, Arizona (less than an hour away). There, they will hold the Club’s general meeting with elections and then enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner. Some Club members drive down for the meeting and the meal. Others stay and camp. There will be 40-45 Club members in attendance.

The RV Club has a wonderful, user-friendly website to find out what is going on, what events and trips are planned, how to sign up for trips, and to pay dues. Visit: www.suncitylvrv.club.

In December, the Club will hold their monthly meeting followed by their annual Holiday party, featuring music. The Club election results will be discussed as well. It will be a fun evening!

“A few of our new Club members who attended our last meeting are new to RVing. We also have members like Dave, our Caravan Coordinator, who have been on the road for 20 years,” says Dean.

“I think back to when I joined the Club. We were new to RVing. It was a tremendous help just getting into the RV

experience. There is so much expertise in the Club. When you get your 1st RV, it can be a little overwhelming, given everything you need to learn. That is one of the great benefits. Another benefit is the friendships you make, the people you get to know. You travel together, build campfires, camp together, eat together. You get to know people in a way that is quite different from other clubs. We are lucky that we share a wonderful community and a love for RVing,” says Dave.

Before they head out on the road, an itinerary of sorts is shared with the RV Club members. For example: Today we are starting in Reno, and we will end up in Napa. Here are some considerations, such as: Be on the lookout for construction on this highway. Club members travel at their own pace, stopping to see the sites, grabbing a bite to eat, and deciding where they want to camp for the night. There is always a designated “caboose” in case someone breaks down or needs assistance along the way.

Fun Fact: “Out of 57 Club members, six are ladies who are also part of the Quilters Club,” shares Theresa.

To learn more about the RV Club please contact Dean Lawes, President at: 802-345-9090. Get out there and safe travels!

Exercise and the Brain

Just Get Started

“The only way you can hurt your body is if you don’t use it.” –Jack LaLanne

Even if you have never exercised, any physical activity is better than none at all. Start slowly and build frequency and duration. Experts recommend combining aerobic, strength, flexibility, and balance training.


• 5 days a week • 30 minutes a day of moderate intensity

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month – Information below provided by Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.

Your brain determines every aspect of your life- your thoughts, emotions, movement, and memory. Your brain works tirelessly for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Keeping your brain healthy and sharp is essential to your well-being.

Today we live longer, and we live healthier. Our heart, our joints and the rest of our bodies can outlive our brain. In other words, our life span may be longer than our brain span.

Your lifestyle has a profound impact on your brain health: Unlike aging and genetics, you have control of your lifestyle choices: what you eat and drink, how much you exercise and sleep you get, the way you socialize and deal with stress, the hobbies you develop and the medications you take to control your blood pressure or diabetes. All these decisions are critically important to helping you create a brain span that matches your life span. Learning, study, social connectedness, rest, and relaxation contribute to cerebral reserve and help us thwart the effects of brain aging.

Brain: The Three-Pound Universe

• Weight: 3 lbs.

• 500 trillion synapses

• 70,000 thoughts per day

• 100 billion neurons

• 300 mile/hour speed

It’s a workhorse. It’s powerful. It gets better with use. It’s amazing. It’s busy. It’s resilient.

What’s good for your heart is good for your brain!

People who exercise regularly may have a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s. Exercise improves blood flow and memory; it stimulates chemical changes in the brain that enhance learning, mood and thinking. Building muscles, staying flexible, and practicing balance can improve posture and reduce the risk of falls. Exercise also helps to reduce stress and improve sleep quality, both of which are important to brain health.

Your Body: Get Moving

• Walking • Gardening

• Playing sports

• Yoga

• Moderate intensity means you can talk but not sing while exercising. • Aim for your target heart rate – your heart rate should be between 64% and 76% of your maximum heart rate. Find your maximum heart rate by subtracting your age from 220 then multiply by percentage. Example: 220-55 years old, maximum heart rate is 165. 165x 0.64= 106 beats per minute. •Walk, hike, bike, swim, dance, or just move.


• 2 days a week • 1 set per muscle group, with 8-12 repetitions per set. • Exercise all major muscle groups with a 2-day minimum rest in between. • Squats, lunges, planks, bicep curls, triceps press-down, shoulder press, etc.


• 3-5 days a week • 10 minutes each session • Hold each stretch 30 to 90 seconds. • Stretch muscles through a full range of motion. • Tai Chi, yoga, and stretching.


• 2-3 days a week • Sit to stand • Stand with feet touching side by side. • Stand heel to toe. • Walk backwards and sideways. • Walk on heels and toes. • Stand on one leg.

• Yoga or Tai Chi class

Please join the Fitness Department this month by participating in the Go Purple movement to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease. Wear purple and show your support to help end the Alzheimer’s epidemic.

Small Thoughts For Big Changes

You know, sometimes the smallest of thoughts can cause the biggest of changes. Sometimes you see or hear something that might end up helping you reframe things, point you in a different direction, or cause you to see a new path in your life. Here are some small thoughts which have had big meanings for me.

people in my life with whom I can share freely and safely. Being available, caring, and ‘showing up’ make it possible for us to touch others in the most important ways. That is what makes us ‘successful’ in life and makes living such an amazing experience.

What a big idea! We all have been given ‘gifts’ for our lives. Sometimes, we have to stop and think to appreciate that we are unique and have ‘gifts’ that give meaning to our lives. Perhaps, the gift of music or wisdom or skillful hiking or even perhaps the gift of empathy. What are your gifts? We all have them and that is what make us - us. So, if our lives have meaning . . . then the purpose of our lives is to share our gifts and give them away. I suppose we do realize that the more we give our gifts away . . . the more we receive gifts from others. It is giving away that makes us rich . . . it is knowing our purpose in life that makes us valuable and special. This thought is certainly worth pondering.

Along those lines, we have been blessed with many accomplishments and ‘things.’ We enjoy the fruits of our years of labor. We have been blessed with a wonderful life with many comforts and accumulations . . . there are many forms of wealth. Still, we know that there is so much more to life than just knowing people or having things or enjoying travel. If we are fortunate, we have found ways to connect to others on a ‘heart level.’ I never needed hundreds of friends . . . what always fills me up is having close, dear friends with whom I can ‘touch hearts.’ I consider myself so fortunate to have dear

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I look at the world and get down about the condition of things. There seems to be so much discord, suffering, injustice, and pain in the world. I sometimes feel so helpless . . . “What can I do about that?” or “That is just the way things are.” I guess we have all heard that the way to fight the darkness is to light a candle. Well, consider that if every person in the world did just one act of kindness (even randomly, not knowing the benefactor and without cause) what an incredibly different world we would be living in. Here, small things make huge differences. I have been known to pay the toll for the car behind me at the toll booth or pay the tab at a café without the recipient even knowing who did it. I have seen so many people do such heroic and generous things in their lives, I have found it an inspirational, motivator for my life and it gives me hope that we all can make huge differences in this world.

Facing tragedy, enduring loss, surviving pain or dealing with gross injustice and unfairness can be extremely difficult challenges. At times, we get stuck in the ‘tyranny of the immediate’ and find it difficult (or impossible) to see any way to get through it. This analogy of life being like a book, with many chapters, has helped me put things in perspective. Like a book, we may cry in one chapter, be puzzled by another, and even rejoice in the next chapter of that book. One thing is for sure . . . if we do not turn the pages of our ‘book,’ we will never know the entire story and see the real reason for the book . . . and most importantly, we must move through the chapters of our lives to be the person we are destined to be. Good luck reading (and writing) your own book.


As new states became part of the nation, a star was added to the flag. The original blue circle became a rectangle to fit all 50 stars, representing the 50 states.

In the late 1950s, the flag was redesigned to fit in two more stars for Alaska and Hawaii as they became the last two states to join the union. A high school student by the name of Robert G. Heft from Ohio redesigned the flag on his mom’s sewing machine. His design was subsequently presented to President Eisenhower. Heft’s flag was selected as the new 50-star flag on July 4, 1960, and remains the official flag.

Bernard J. Cigrand, a first-generation immigrant of Luxembourg parents, proposed the annual observance of the flag in 1886. The first Flag Day was held in Chicago in 1894.

In 1916, during the presidency of Woodrow Wilson, Flag Day was proclaimed an annual national event. Three decades later, in August of 1949, President Harry S. Truman signed into law the observance of National Flag Day.

On Flag Day, parades, picnics, and baseball games are held. Americans proudly fly the Stars and Stripes.

Take a moment to celebrate our flag and what it means to be an American. We honor our flag with the Pledge of Allegiance: I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.



How To Help Your Security Patrol!


you and your neighbors from occupying the same space at the same time. Do not rush the traffic signals at Rampart, Lake Mead, and Anasazi. Your turn to press on, only comes when you have the green light. Remember, the speed limits in Sun City are determined by the City of Las Vegas. Thanks for being a good, safe, neighbor.

4. If you do not have a safety response button and particularly if you are alone or decide to do tasks around the home by yourself, have a phone you can carry with you. Then you can get help if you need it. Speaking of help put these numbers in your phone right now!

A. 911-emergency help, be ready to tell the operator if you need the police or fire and rescue.

B. 311- nonemergency for the police

C. 702-254-2303 Sun City Security Patrol

D. 702-828-9111 If you are out of town and need Las Vegas Emergency.

Sun City Security Patrol has around 200 members at any time. That number fluctuates as seasons change and folks head out for vacations or may decide that they no longer can do the work required. Fortunately, there are the “rookies”, just beginning their stint in this important organization.

There are also about 12,000 other sets of eyes and ears in our community. They can be a huge help to the uniformed patrol officers. Even though the Patrol has up to five vehicles to use, we cannot be at all places all the time. Residents are spread evenly across the neighborhoods, and some are gazing out the windows during the daylight hours and others have their “radar” on high alert after dark.

Here is a short list of possibilities where you can help!

1. Please call Security Patrol if you see or hear something that just does not seem right for your neighborhood. We will dispatch the closest car to your address to check it out.

2. You are responsible for keeping your home safe, inside and out. Check your address numbers. Are they visible and lighted? Some of our foliage has grown up and over the numbers that identify your house. You can’t be found quickly in case of emergency and sometimes minutes count.

3. When you drive or walk the community, please, please, please follow the law. Those red signs that have STOP printed in white help keep

5. Security Patrol has available a kit titled “Vial of Life”. You can have all of the necessary information at your fingertips if you should have to call for an ambulance. (This may also come in handy when all those doctors want you to share your entire life for their records). That kit should be on or near the refrigerator with the accompanying sign near or on the front door.

6. And finally, those beautiful blue sheets (Emergency Contact Forms) need to be on file and kept up to date. Come to our base of operations at the far end of Desert Vista parking lot or ask any patrol officer for a copy. Be sure you have a local person as one of your contacts and best to have that person also to be able to open your home in case of emergency.

Protect Yourself from Fraud and Financial Crimes

Metro’s Detective Gomez, who has worked in the financial crimes division of Metro for 15 years, reviewed how to defend against numerous types of financial crimes.

It is essential to do simple tasks like carefully reviewing bank and credit card statements for discrepancies. Use a crosscut shredder to destroy information, collect your mail every day, update virus protection software and have strong passwords on your computer to protect against identity theft.

According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center: In 2022 citizens over 60 years old reported a total of 800,944 complaints, with losses exceeding $10.3 billion. Unfortunately, the numbers are much higher because many of these types of financial losses were never reported.

One common financial crime is phishing (pronounced fishing), when emails that appear to be sent by someone you think you know, and trust, is actually from a criminal trying to trick you to send money and gift cards, or who asks for bank account, credit card, social security, or other personal information - which is later used to empty your bank accounts or obtain credit cards to purchase items you pay for, but never receive.

Phone scams, or voice phishing, is when a criminal misrepresents themselves as being from the IRS, Police, or your bank. These agencies will never communicate by phone or Internet. Computers technology has advanced to the point where a friend or relatives voice can be mimicked. Never give personal or credit card information or donate money to anyone who calls. Hang up!!!

Sun City Summerlin residents have reported falling for schemes when individuals said that they were the president of a club, your church pastor, from a medical facility you were treated at, or other people/institutions you trust, but they were not! - They were criminals who tricked our residents to send money, or give out personal information, that cost thousands of dollars.

Recognizing these crimes are increasingly being perpetuated against our residents, Metro’s “First Tuesday” event held at the Pinnacle on May 2nd focused on how to protect oneself from being the victim of a financial crime scheme.

Additionally, if you receive unsolicited phone calls, even if your caller ID says it is from someone you know, never give out any information before verifying the call. Divert the conversation by saying you are busy, ask for their phone number and verify that the person who called is who they say they are.

Goodbye Captain Sims, Hello Captain Joe Lepore

The May 2nd First Tuesday event also introduced Captain Joe Lepore, who recently replaced Captain Sims as the Summerlin Commander.

The Sun City Summerlin Neighborhood Preparedness Team welcomes Captain Lepore. We will continue to work together to prevent all types of crimes, personal, property and financial, that are perpetuated against Sun City Summerlin, and all Summerlin residents.

The Great Walls of Sun City

Walls play a substantial, varied and important role in Sun City’s security and privacy equation, as they also act as effective sound-reduction and potential fire protection barriers. Walls complement our yard decorating efforts and surely enhance how we use our limited outdoor yard-space.

Walls are constructed of durable materials and are expected to have a very long life, but they occasionally need a little TLC in the form of repainting, cleaning or stucco repair. As our walls approach 35 years in age, regular maintenance checks become very necessary – just as with all types of weatherexposed surfaces and outdoor equipment. For all they do, our walls should be treated with kindness and respect and an occasional wellness check!

Perimeter walls, pony walls, common walls, retaining walls –call them what you will – their largest predator in Sun City is “water!” Yes, Water, which we spend so much time and energy trying to conserve, creates substantial damage to some walls. Walls are prone to water damage and, all too often, are the unintended recipients of large amounts of water that often seeps from residential watering or drip systems into the ground at the base of nearby walls. This creates unsightly stains on walls and potential long-term structural damage, both of which require ongoing repair.

A major consideration is that water seeping from one yard can inadvertently damage an adjacent resident’s wall. Consequently, if one resident’s over-watering, leaking irrigation system or, even an unknown broken water line, is responsible for staining or damaging an adjoining neighbor’s wall, that resident may be held accountable for mitigating the neighbor’s damage. The same may be true of Association-owned walls that are damaged by leaking water from an adjoining residence.

One of the early signs of wall deterioration is the presence of “efflorescence”, which is an unsightly white residue that is

Sun City Has About 30 Miles of Walls That Form Its Borders, Promoting Privacy and Security

left on walls as water evaporates and leaves natural salts behind. Unfortunately, this represents an early stage of cement or stucco deterioration and will only lead to larger problems if left unattended.

Surely, our walls require normal painting or cleaning, as do our homes. Normal maintenance needs should be assessed and carried out routinely by residents, just as our Association walls are monitored and repaired by our Sun City Maintenance Department. Recognizing a problem in its early stages can prevent major expenses from creeping up on us.

If you have walls on your property, and especially common walls with your neighbors, may we suggest one simple preventive measure. Check your walls (on both sides) occasionally to assure that they are not under attack from an undetected and unknown water source. Fixing a problem in the early stages pays off! The money you save, may be your own!

And a reminder – If you have a wall on the street-side of your property, or you are on a corner lot, you should also inspect these perimeter walls regularly. The wall and the maintenance of landscaping that faces the street, is the responsibility of the homeowner.


Toy Story

Collecting is usually a passing childhood hobby - marbles, cards, and dolls come quickly to mind. Rare are those with the persistence (and permission!) who retain their collections into retirement. Imagine if you had begun, let’s say, a toy car collection about 65 years ago, carefully, and diligently expanded your fleet since that time, and still have them all proudly on display . . . well, then you would be in Norman’s league and a bona fide “autophile.”

I discovered my neighbor’s impressive collection while checking out some recent patio work. As I was leaving, Norman casually asked if I was interested in model cars. Before I could reply, he led me to his den. Surrounding his desk was a variety of custom shelves, cabinets, and tables . . . all displaying an impressive assortment of toy cars, trucks, trains, and other miniature vehicles. All of a sudden I did have an interest in model cars! He mentioned “I have even more in the garage . . . ” Sure enough, another cabinet maxed out with even more toy vehicles.

When asked how many vehicles were in his collection, he thought for a moment, shrugged, and replied “I don’t know, maybe a thousand?” When a quick count of just one garage cabinet’s shelf yielded 250-300 vehicles, he quickly upped his estimate to 4-5,000 . . . or more. He has never taken the time to count or catalog his collection, even during any of the six times he has moved them. The model that started all of this is a Matchbox truck he purchased at a hobby shop. Norman’s favorite, after

much thought, is a hook and ladder fire truck with the conic Mack Bulldog hood ornament. He has no idea which item is the most valuable, having never researched or offered any items for sale.

Norman retired from the family grocery and warehouse business in St. Louis and his wife of 56 years, Vicki, is a real estate broker. They moved to Las Vegas in 2014. When asked about his enduring collection, she replied, “Oh goodness, I’ve known him since I was 13 years old, and he always had cars around him.” Vicki has a modest (in comparison) collection of porcelain figurines and family mementos that are impressively displayed in their living room. It appears the living room is offlimits to any of Norman’s collection.

You might think that Norman’s garage would be rigged up with lifts and house 1-2 classic rides. On the contrary, he has a pickup, an SUV, and a golf cart. Boring! He first cool ride was a 1964 Chevy II. Over the years, he has owned a 1948 Packard, a 1955 Nash Statesman, and a ’66 Mustang which he proudly passed down to a grandson that shares his love of old cars.

Norman intends to donate his collection to a museum so that others may enjoy his lifelong passion. In the meantime, there’s always room for one more . . . someplace. In Norman’s words, “A real collector never stops collecting!” Don’t be surprised if you see Norman at a Sun City sale. If you do, move quickly if you take a liking to anything on wheels . . . it may be “Gone in Sixty Seconds”!

HAM Radio, Emergency Communications, and More

Original owner Ken Johnson - W7BES, who has assisted in numerous disasters while working for FEMA, including 911, and numerous other State and local emergency agencies, bought the lot his home was to be built on when Sun City Summerlin was nothing more than dirt roads and a dream. Ken is aware that there is a fault line that could cause a major earthquake just two (2) miles from Sun City Summerlin and he was instrumental in organizing other Hams as they moved in. Sun City Summerlin Hams are now a vital part of the Neighborhood Preparedness Team.

According to the April 2019 Link:

“In a crisis situation, the primary purpose of the Neighborhood Preparedness Team’s HAM radio operators will be to communicate with Clark County’s Emergency Operations Center. County Emergency Operations radio personnel will provide crucial data to Sun City Summerlin’s 24 amateur radio operators, who will relay that information to residents.” https://www.suncitylink.com/uploads/1/0/3/9/ 103913400/2019-april-web.pdf

Additional HAM history is in the August 2013 issue of the LINK found here: https://www.suncitylink.com/uploads/ 1/0/3/9/103913400/link_2013-aug_for_web.pdf - History is interesting, but as cell phone, computer and Internet technology has advanced since 2013 so too has HAM radio.

Robert - N7GET, Ken - W7BES, Mark - W6MW and others built a system designed to maintain communications via radio waves when traditional forms of communication fail during a disaster. It is ready to be put online as soon as the antenna is

hoisted to the roof of the Pinnacle.

The new antenna adds additional emergency valley-wide communications capability, including Winlink, a global radio network that transmits emails via radio frequencies. Essentially Winlink is Wi-Fi without the internet. The antenna also supports AREDN (Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network), a high-speed communication grid that uses nodes (relay stations) to communicate throughout Clark County, Nevada, and the world. These systems are designed to maintain communications when others like landlines, cell phones and the Internet stop working. It adds to the existing repeater system, W7SCS, which allows anyone with a HAM license to communicate with other Hams in Sun City Summerlin and all over the valley. With Sun City Summerlin’s budget in mind, some residents may wonder how much the Association had to pay to create these new emergency communication systems. The answer is nothing! All the equipment and the time to set up and maintain them is donated by the Sun City Summerlin Hams.

If you want to learn more about the advances in amateur radio, how to become a licensed Ham (you do not need to learn Morse code anymore) come to Desert Vista on June 24th for the ARRL Field Day, which is a contest when Sun City Summerlin Hams will see how many other Hams they can contact throughout the world.

Above: Sun City Summerlin Hams with the new antenna system that will be installed on the roof of The Pinnacle. Below: Having fun after a hidden transmitter was found inside an emergency cone.
