Picture description: There are blue and green fireworks over a black background. Over the fireworks in white letters are the words, “We’d like to welcome our new members, Kellee Bell KM7BEL and John Bell KI7CMV. Welcome to the Dark Side, we have donuts.” In the bottom right corner is the D.A.R.K. logo. At the bottom in small white letters are the words, “Created by R. Cason 2018 for the Dam Amateur Radio Klub.” End description.

As we all know, living in the great state of Missouri can be a challenge when it comes to inclement weather and meetings. To align with the new BC ARES policy, D.A.R.K. meetings will be conducted via a phone conference dial-in system for the months of January and February. We will make a decision on March’s meeting as it draws closer and we have a better idea of how the weather is acting at that time.
Once we have settled on a (FREE) conferencing service, we will email the information to existing members.
At the November meeting tomorrow, we will be discussing the December Christmas Party and meeting, along with the next steps for D.A.R.K. We will also be discussing the first broadcast from one of the four dams in our area in the Spring.
I have submitted our proposal to the US Army Corps of Engineers to determine if there are any rules and regulations we need to adhere to when operating near their dams. I will be following up with them over the next few months to get their permission to work with them for special event stations during key dates regarding their dams.
I hope to see you all at the November meeting!
