Thank you for everyone who attended last month’s meeting.
Luis no call sign yet.
We went over old minutes
Went over any old business
We need to get a count of how many radio’s we have for field day
Lewis is coming again for field day and here is the menu
Ribs (3 bones and 3 sides)
Pulled pork sandwiches
Beans, Mac and cheese, corn bread,
$15 per plate.
We need to monitor our repeater. Tom checked in on a impromptu net on Easter and whoever was running it cut it off as soon as he checked in.There is nothing wrong with other people wanting to do nets on our repeater but our leadership would like to know and it’s a bit odd when people stop the net when someone from our club checks in.
We finally went over the logging software for field day.
Our next meeting is May 16, at 7 pm. at the Richfield community center. We plan on having sign ups for field day for different things that we need for field day. I hope to see a lot of people there to help us plan for field day.
Thank you for everyone who attended our March meeting.

It has been exciting to see that participation at our club meetings has been growing every month and we hope to continue to see that trend. We appreciate everyone that is able to come to the meetings and be a part of the planning of the upcoming activities . We are looking at an exciting year of activities that our club can participate in and we have a great opportunity to help make our club grow and be more involved in our city. We hope to see everyone who is able to attend our next meeting on April 18th.
Just a reminder that we have our club meeting this Wednesday at the Richfield community center starting at 7 pm. We will be continuing to go over the details for field day and than have a game of ham radio jeopardy. So come join us and have some fun.
Subnotes: (Whenever anyone checks-in to a net they should always check-out with the net controller if they have to leave early.)
Anyone can do roundtable at anytime because all it takes 3 or more people talking together. (aka a partyline over the radio.)
I double dog dare you! To make the biggest ham radio roundtable.
Email us if you can help at: WØRRC.RARC@gmail.com
Just a reminder that this Wednesday is our monthly club meeting. We will be going over upcoming events that we want to do for the year. If you can make it to the meeting it will be appreciated.
