G’day folks, this is Phil VK5SRP with this weeks news from The Adelaide Hills Amateur Radio Society for the 8th of February 2021. Would you believe it, one month of 2021 already gone.
Lunches at the Blackwood RSL are on the second and the fourth Friday of each month. The next lunch will be on the 12th of February, that is this week. You can book for the lunch at the RSL on 8278 6253 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The RSL would like us to book for the Friday lunches a day or two before the actual day so they have an idea of how many will be attending.
Our first General meeting for 2021 will be the AGM on February the 18th and it is time to think about the AHARS committee for 2021. AHARS needs you ! I will send out the document outlining the duties of those on the committee and a nomination form. If you feel moved to join the committee, fill out this form and post it to me at PO Box 501 Modbury or scan and sent via email. I already have volunteers for the positions of secretary and treasure.
Christine will be doing the supper in a Covid safe way, thankyou Christine for all the effort you have put into supper over the years.
At the AGM Paul, VK5PAS, will be showing and telling you about the
AHARS web site. Paul, the web master, has been doing a great job of the AHARS web site and has now taken over responsibility for the AHARS history, a BIG thank you Paul for all your efforts.
At the March meeting on the 18th of March, Brian VK5VI, will be telling us about he WIA broadcast and how it goes to air on Sunday mornings.
Barry, VK5BW is looking for someone to help him with our repeater network. If you would like to help with this important activity, send Barry and email at VK5BW@wia.org.au
At a committee meeting during 2020 we decided to increase the Subs by $5.00 to non WIA members. Pat has pointed out these people cost us extra for our WIA provided insurance. The subs are still $20 for WIA members and $25 for non WIA members if paid before the end of March. After that date there will be a $5.00 late fee.
