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.

Dur to inclement weather, the February 2019 meeting was held on the air on the W0RRC UHF repeater. President Don, KC0TJ and Secretary Paul, KE0QXV served as officers. Five other members joined in. Discussion of proposed by-law changes were postponed until the March 20th, 2019 RARC meeting. Also at the March meeting, Paul KE0QXV will make a presentation on hand soldering theory and techniques. If club members have interest in a hands on session, that can be arranged for a later date. At the April RARC club meeting, there will be an APRS presentation.
Respectfully submitted February 26, 2019
Paul KE0QXV, RARC secretary.

To Members, Friends, Family, & Guests,
Our Omni Theater events are cancelled. I have had one person signed up other than me. So I am forced to cancel both days. I will be using Signup Genius https://www.signupgenius.com/ in future club sign-ups. All members must be ready for future opportunities using this tool including Field Day. This is a free service and is used by many organizations and will be used by us.
We will still be having our next club meeting on the 20th as normal. Our Monthly meeting is reviewing the bylaws for changes & programming your Chi-com radios.
In the future we will have other weekend fun activities with no club business (However we may ask for future Ideas). We will be making time at every monthly meeting to help do a quick radio programing of all brands, an emergency preparedness minute, and we will be touching on the basics and reviews of what everyone should know added to every monthly agenda.
Our leadership is committed to getting everyone on the air and doing hands on activities. we will be looking in to digital modes, soldering, antennas, goboxes, APRS, radio related videos with comments afterwards and many other ham friendly events this year.
Remember this is your club and we need your help to keep it fun and relevant.
Bring your Chi-com radio and learn to program it.
BTech, Pofung, Anytone, Baofeng, & etc.
All members will be able to review & comment on any & all changes…
NEXT MEETING… in March we will vote on final version…
The next scheduled meeting is Wednesday, March 20th at 7:00 p.m.

Thanks to the 2018 officers for their service and thanks to these guys for stepping up and taking the reins in 2019!
We are planning a weekend event to the Science Museum of MN Omnitheater to see either Tornado Alley and/or Journey to Space, depending on the schedule on the day we choose to go. This will be open to everyone, families, and friends. If we can get 15+ people, tickets are discounted by $1.00. More info to come on this!
Unfortunately, the club won’t be able to participate in Winter Field Day in an official capacity due to scheduling conflicts with our usual QTH. Let us know if you end up participating yourself or in an informal group, we would love to hear about it!
