First and foremost, we do have a sitting “Board”, the basics required by ARRL to be recognized as a “Club” and to satisfy their requirements for Affiliation.
A field day location has been reserved.
We have begun the arduous task of forming our Mission statement, Constitution and by-laws.
We do have a tentative location for general membership meetings.
We do continue to do a monthly field operation “in the park” as we did with our other club, but we will use the “GOTAhams” club call WG6OTA.
We plan to share our general meetings on a streaming service as soon as we put the equipment and infrastructure together.
We do have a multi platform Chat room through “Workplace” allowing text, audio call/conference, video call/conference, screen and file sharing that will facilitate virtual meetings for our board to handle urgent business without having to schedule a physical meeting.
A lot of work has been done with a lot accomplished in a very short time.
At our last count I believe we are at least 10 members strong and growing.
There will be many changes as we grow, being accepting of those changes is key to our growth. keeping our focus on the hobby and helping each other in this journey will make us all better amateur radio enthusiasts and mentors.
The saying goes “lots of hands make for light work”, we are a shining example of that already.
I am very proud of all the work that has been done and would like to humbly thank all of you that have worked toward our goal.
Club President, Ken Mixon KC6WOK
