Hamfest in Kansas City this weekend.
Wow, Guess by now most know that the hosting site that we use had a MAJOR system crash a couple of days ago. Scott (KB8KGU) contacted me about it and a couple of hours later he contacted me agin informing me that the hosting site was back up and using a backup version of data. I SENT OUT TWO emails informing all club members and ask for members to CHECK the site and if they found any wrong, bad, or outdated information to sent me an email and I’d fix it. Well guess I missed a couple of items! Anyway I have revisited the website and I think I have made all the changes to include some individual’s info. AGAIN, if you see something send me an email to the above address and I (once I verify it) will fix it.
Okay, I have updated the Eat’n Meet’n and added the March 2018 Minutes.
Don’t forget that the Emergency Net will be on 146.955 (PL 192.8) at 10 AM on the 11th of April. The monthly meeting is also on the 11th at 7 PM.
Had a good meeting the other night, lots of things discussed.
Certificate of appreciation was presented to the Mid Country fire chief. The certificate was presented to express the Clubs appreciation for the use of the fire house’s facilities to hold our meetings. Club representative Ernest Venis (W0LTC) made the presentation at the Fire Station.
Certificate of appreciation was presented to Ron Gentry, (KE0PVF), Camden county Emergency Management Agency (EMA) Director. The certificate was presented to express the Clubs appreciation for the use of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) during the clubs annual Eagle Days special event. Club representative Ernest Venis (W0LTC) made the presentation at the EOC.
Recently Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) held an Intro to Emergency Communication class (ARRL EC-001) in Columbia. Two of our members attended this class, Ernest Venis (W0LTC) and Jerry Parmer (KE0OTM). See if you can find them in the picture to the right (hint: look for a red circle, lol). A score of 80% was needed to pass the test, that 28 out of 35 questions must be correct, wow that’s two more than needed to get a Technician or General license! GREAT JOB GUYS!!! Say I have an idea (no it didn’t hurt, Glenn) why don’t you schedule a class for the club and share some of your newly obtained knowledge?
