OK, We have realized some of our members are not “Zoomers”, You have not stepped into the virtual world that has become one of our vehicles for club member participation that is readily available and relatively easy for our members to use. I have included some videos covering the basics and links to Zoom.us for documents and guides to help you through the process of setting up a free account. I do realize it informs you that there are time limits for meetings on free accounts, this only applies to the “Host” of each meeting. GOTAhams and several board members maintain “Pro” accounts allowing unlimited time for our meetings, no participant needs a Pro Account to avoid the time limits.
The only hardware you will need is a computer with a microphone and camera (most laptops) if you don’t have that, any Smartphone or Tablet will let you join, either Apple or Android just needs the Zoom App installed. NOW, you have few excuses to not “Join the Party”.

GOTAhams has been using this method for many months during this Covid-19 pandemic, for virtual Board of directors’ meetings and General membership meetings. Our Monthly membership meetings deal with some quick business, announcements and programs with timely and relevant content. we have also employed this method to share “in the park” events and maintain a nightly “GOTAhams Lounge” vitual meeting prior to the net about 7:30 pm to 8:00 (beginning of of our nightly radio roundtable net). we will also utilize this method for our Field Day planning committee.
If you are experiencing difficulty accessing any of our scheduled meetings please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to assign you a “Zoom Elmer” to assist you.
