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 next lunch will be on the 27th of November. 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.
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.
At last weeks committee meeting we authorised the purchase of the hardware to add two extra SDR receivers to the remote receiving site provided by Paul VK5PH.
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.
The committee has 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 like we have had for the past two years. It will be free to financial members of AHARS. The price for non members including partners who are not financial members of AHARS has not been decided yet, we are waiting for the RSL secretary to get back to us. I will be calling for registrations when we have finalised the arrangement with the RSL.
In addition to maintaining the AHARS web site, Paul VK5PAS, has take over the club history records from Lloyd Butler.
2020 is almost gone and it is time to think about the AHARS committee for 2021. AHARS needs you ! I have attached a document outlining the duties of those on the committee and a nomination form if you feel moved to join the committee. This can be posted to me at PO Box 501 Modbury or scanned and sent via email.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
