September Meeting Update

Hello, my D.A.R.K.lings!!!

Sam here!

D.A.R.K.’s September meeting was jam-packed full of fun activity plans and encouraging progress! Of course, the meeting minutes will be posted, but I want to hit the highlights.

We had to wait for additional time for the certificates to be completed for the Truman Dam event. Those will go out Monday. Here is the proof for the QSL card for the SE:

We made a few minor changes to the back (because I forgot to include info in the original email), and we should receive information on the cards shortly.

Roger brought up partnering with Handi-Hams, since we have restored EchoLink to the Benton County repeater. Kelly Stanfield W0YQG is going to be our liaison for that!

The first round of D.A.R.K. T-shirts have been ordered. I’ll let everyone know when they should come in and how much each shirt will be once I have that info.

We are working on putting our VE Team and our Elmer/Elmira Team together and getting those two projects up and running.

We are in the planning stages for the next Special Event for the club which will be held at Pomme de Terre Dam during the week of November 16-23. Working out the details with the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Once that is locked in, we will commence with the fun part of planning the event. We also discussed what logging program/method we want to use since we are hoping for more operators on this one! We plan to operate Phone and CW so far. Digital will be offered if it becomes available during that week. Stay tuned for more details!

Stay tuned for more updates!
