Gday folks, this is Phil VK5SRP with the latest news from The Adelaide Hills Amateur Radio Society.
Good news, the AHARS web site is now working. Paul, VK5PAS the web master, has spent a lot of time updating and giving the site a new look. https://www.ahars.com.au/
Lunches at the Blackwood RSL are on the second and the fourth Friday of each month. The November lunches will be on the 13th and the 27th of the month. You can book for the lunch at the RSL on 8278 6253 or via email at email@example.com. 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.
The October general meeting was well attended and we had more Show and Tells than we could run on the night. The plan is to present these after the AGM on the 18th of February
At the November meeting Brian, VK5VI, will present a presentation on the South East Radio Group linked repeater network. This will be interesting to many as it is a complex network with a lot of history. Soon it will extend its reach into western Victoria.
I have had several requests to start the regular videoing of the general meetings and I am looking for someone to do this again. Would be easier for that person if we had two or three people who would like to do this and we could have a roster to make it easier on those doing this.
At the last committee meeting we decided we would not have a Christmas Dinner this year, the logistics of this are difficult due to the Covid restrictions. Instead we are planning to have our January Picnic on Sunday the 17th of January at the Marion RSL and like last year, it will be free to financial members. It will be about $10.00 for non members including your partners who are not financial members of AHARS. I will be calling for registrations when we have finalised the arrangement with the RSL.
I am still looking for someone to take over the club history records from Lloyd Butler. Lloyd has turned 96 and he says he has done his bit, it is time for a younger person to take over. If you would like to take over this important task please email me and I will send you the letter Lloyd has sent the committee.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
