Hello, my D.A.R.K.lings!
We are welcoming some new faces to D.A.R.K.!
Terry and Sandy Crane have joined D.A.R.K. this month and we are excited to have them as part of the D.A.R.K. side! Future ham Jeremy Troester also sat in on the meeting to learn more about amateur radio and our club.
We had a number of things to cover this time, from an update on Echolink (we are in the last stages of FINALLY restoring Echolink to the 925!) to the special event we will be running during the week of July 20-28 from our farm in Edwards, MO!
We are looking for members to serve as Elmers. You don’t have to know everything about your chosen subject, you just have to be open and willing to help new members/hams navigate our wonderful hobby! I encourage everyone to join in the information sharing and teaching!
We plan to have a barbecue on the first Saturday (July 20) of the event at 6:30 PM. Sandy has graciously agreed to coordinate the sides for the pot luck. We also have donations to support the purchase of the meat for the event.
After the meeting, we received word that we are approved to use W0T for the full eight days of the event. If you wish to operate as the club under the 1×1 at any time during the event from your home QTH, please message KE0TGG call sign trustee Roger Henley KD0WXT at firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the band plan.
We also received an update on the club t-shirts from Tightwad T’s. We will present the sample shirt at the meeting following delivery, along with the price so we can take preorders. This keeps our overhead down and allows you to order the number of shirts you want!
More updates to come as things pour in!
