Another Year gone by, Holidays have past, I know we had a busy 2019 but that was our first year of learning about being a Radio Club. What I believe we’ve learned is Clubs need a purpose! ours is easily apparent within the name “Get On The Air”, I do believe we have been true to that namesake.
2020 will have us continuing in that mission of, Helping HAMs Get On The Air and keeping the Amateur Radio community “Radio Active”.
There have been Challenges from across the country by the 2019 club of the year to create a “New Ham Boot Camp”. Locally we have been asked to help the Tri City ACS with their mission of educating and licensing new hams. Our mission supporting Tri City is to help get those newly licensed Hams Get On The Air and help them find their interest or passion within this hobby.
At this Months meeting I will be Challenging each of you to find and mentor (elmer) a new or a non-active Ham to help them learn all the opportunities this Hobby has to offer. get them to check in to a local net, discover some of the field activities like a Swap meet, Radio store, GOTAhams field Ops etc.
I will also be asking for input of course content for our “New Ham Boot Camp” presentation and volunteers to help present during our “Boot Camp”.
It is not all work, we will have our monthly Raffle and as always input from YOU our members is Welcome and Highly promoted so bring those Questions and Ideas! (that is the best part of our meetings)
Kathi and I look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
