Hello Club Members and Fellow Amateur Operators,
This is John, VK5RJ with this week’s news from the Adelaide Hills Amateur Radio Society.
AHARS had a good representation at Wriggles’ funeral on Wednesday with about 8-10 members present. It was a lovely celebration to Trevor’s life, and his family and friends spoke well of his escapades through the Amateur Radio and TV world. It was a cracker of a day and the funeral was held out under a big tree in the garden at Partridge House in Glenelg. There was also members from the other clubs, North East, AREG, WICEN in attendance. Trevor will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
AHARS will once again be holding a Public Buy and Sell event, and this will be held on Saturday 15th of July, at the Marion RSL in Norfolk Road, Marion.
Sellers will pay $10.00 and get 2 tickets. Buyers will pay a $5.00 entry fee. If you can spare some time to assist in the running of this event, please get in touch with either myself or Geoff (VK5JB) to be added to the list of helpers.
The committee has decided that we need to hold a Special Meeting prior to running the next monthly General Meeting, and this will be held on the night of the 21st of April as there are a few things that need to be dealt with. There are some minor wording changes that need to be corrected in our Constitution and we need to accept and ratify the minutes of the 2022 AGM. More details will follow in future bulletins.
The buy and sell was a great success, with over $730.00 raised for the VK5LT Estate. There are still quite a few items that will be up for sale at the Public Buy and Sell.
I’m looking forward to Graham Dicker’s presentation at the next monthly meeting on Electrical Safety, which is something we all need to be aware of.
Lunch at the Blackwood RSL was well attended by the regular crowd and it was good to see the ladies attending.
Don’t forget the excellent information on the AHARS Web and Facebook pages, and we thank Paul (VK5PAS) for his excellent work administering both.
As always, if you have anything of interest, or any exciting news, please let me know so we can share things with all our members.
I will be away at a reunion in Port Pirie next weekend, so I won’t be able to do the Sunday Broadcast and Email for the 2nd of April. This event was planned and booked last year and can’t be changed.
Well, that's all for now from me, so keep looking at the emails, and listening to the Sunday broadcast, and stay away from COVID and other nasty bugs.
Cheers & 73 from VK5RJ
