AHARS notes for 22nd March 2021
AHARS is planning to have a Back to the Shack Breakfast on March 27th. You may remember we had Breakfast at the shack regularly before the pandemic hit us. If you wish to attend this event next weekend, please send me an email with the number of people attending. Send your email to my personal email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The breakfast will be eggs and bacon and tea and coffee.
I wonder how many of our members took part in the John Moyle this weekend ? This is not a typical contest event where many participants are hell bent on getting the highest score and can be quiet rude to folk who are not used to the cut and thrust of other contests. It is meant to be a fun event.
Read about the special event call signs for the RAAF 100 years and give them a call during the time they will be on air. More information on the WIA web site at:
Pat the Treasure is pleased with how many people have already paid there subs for 2021. Most members have paid by direct deposit. So far we have had more than 78% of the members pay their subs, well done folks. If you do not have access to on-line banking you can send us your payment to the AHARS post box, AHARS Inc, P.O. Box 401, Blackwood, S.A. 5051 We have also signed up eight new members and two people have rejoined after an absence of one year.
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.
You can pay by direct deposit: Name: AHARS, BSB: 105 186, Account no: 036 248 940
Please do not forget to include your name and or call sign in you details. Pat is sending emails to all those who have paid to make sure AHARS has their correct email address.
Brian, VK5VI told us about how the Sunday Broadcast goes to air each week and included an interesting history lesson on how this has evolved over the years, thanks again Brian. Brian will be our guest later in the year with the story of the South East Radio Groups extensive linked repeater network. Brian has been an active member of NERC for many years and looks after the NERC repeaters.
Keep an eye on your emails and an ear on the Sunday broadcasts to find out what AHARS is planning for 2021.
My email address is for this month is email@example.com.
That’s all for this week, 73.
