G'day folks, here is the latest news from AHARS:
Advanced notice of a bargain sale of left over items from the deceased estate collections: This will be on the 21st of March, that is correct, on a third Saturday morning rather than a fourth Saturday.
The AGM went well and we have two new faces on the committee. We ran a Special General Meeting at the beginning of the evening to amend the constitution. I was the only person to put my hand up for the President’s position but our constitution had a limit of three years for that office. That was soon sorted out with a small change to the constitution. We also have another problem, nomination must be with the committee twenty eight days before the AGM.
This has lead to another committee vacancy, Shirley VK5YL, had nominated for the position of secretary but two weeks before the AGM she had a serious back operation and had to retract her nomination.
We are now looking for someone to put their hand up for this position and under the provisions of the constitution we can appoint that person at the first committee meeting for the year. Who would like that position ?, send me an email and volunteer. Please note the committee meetings this year will be on the second Wednesday of each month due to other commitments.
The new committee is Phil VK5SRP as President, Barry VK5BW as Vice President, Pat Storr as Treasurer, and the committee people are, Jim VK5TR, Geof Southby VK5TAW and Greg VK5ZBD. I will say it gain, we are urgently looking for a Secretary.
Membership is still $20.00 if paid before the end of March. After that date it will be $25.00. Treasure Pat was very pleased, we had forty members pay their subs on the night in addition to quite few who had already payed by direct deposit.
You can pay in person at meetings or by Direct deposit, the details are:
BSB: 105 186
Account no: 036 248 940
You can also pay by cheque or money order and post it to AHARS Inc, P.O. Box 401, Blackwood, S.A. 5051
The March monthly Meeting presentation on the 19th of the month will be by Rubens VK5FE, and it is about home brewing radio equipment. Those of you who attend shack morning will know what an amazing job Rubens makes of his exotic test equipment.
The March Technical presentation at the shack on the 28th will by Jim VK5TR and Jim will be showing you how to use the amazing nanoVNA device.
