The AHARS news for the 5th of June 2022
At the next General Meeting on the 16th of June Bill Cowley will tell us about the 5MBS Transmitter relocation.
Thank you if you are one of the people who have volunteered to do a session at a general meeting. Presentations usually last about 45 minutes to one hour and can be radio and electronic subjects or general interest topics.
The church have found us some storage space at the venue and we will be able to store our magazines and library at the venue soon. The other stuff we do not need access to at meeting Geoff has offered us storage space at his QTH.
Some of the committee worked on sorting out stuff at the shack last Saturday morning and we tossed out a lot of “CRAP” and Jim took a load of scrap to the scrap metal place and collected $159.00 for it, what a BIG surprise, thanks Jim.
The local National Trust people are keen to get us to use the Watchmans House in Coromandel Valley, not far away from where we now meet but the ladies who look after the shack want us to keep using it for as long as it is available.
The next lunch at the RSL will be on Friday the 10th of June at 12 noon and the next social gathering at the shack will be on Saturday the 11th of June at 10.00 AM. There will be another lunch at the RSL on the 24th of June and another coffee and chat on the 25th of June. Attendance have been down at these events for the past few weeks, I suggest the weather and covid are responsible for these low numbers.
I am hoping we can re start our technical talks at the shack on the fourth Saturdays soon. I have had some interesting topics suggested in response to my call for speakers at General Meetings. One or two of the topics would be more appropriate for a technical session at the shack as we will need two hours to do them justice.
A progress report from Jackie on VK5SF (Mikes) progress.
Hi Phil, Mike is still in the stroke ward at the Flinders hospital. It has been eight weeks now.
He has made some progress in that he is placed in a special wheelchair each day which at first was difficult for him to cope with but now he can sit in it for two hours.
He still cannot talk, eat or drink. His right side is still paralysed but he is starting to feel some sensation there.
I am hopeful he will improve further but I do not know if he will. The doctors give me no encouragement for this but I hope he can eventually come home. Jackie
Wishing you all a pleasant rest of the week, stay safe and away from covid, Phil VK5SRP
