March 2014 Meeting Change

The club officers have decided that the club needs regular sustenance, or at least a change of scenery.

Therefore, we are scheduling the regular meeting every 3 months (March, June, September, and December) to be at Libby’s Catfish and Diner on Highway 67 in Priceville.

The March club meeting will therefore be held at Libby’s in Priceville at 6:00 on Tuesday, March 4th.

Be there and enjoy the food and the good conversations.

National Traffic System – Radiograms

At the April meeting the Vice-President, David Stephenson KJ4OKJ presented a program on radiograms and the National Traffic System.

The Powerpoint presentation he used can be downloaded from the ARRL website here. you may need to log into the site before you can download it.

A former member, Silent Key Dave Knight W4ZJY used to be very active in passing traffic. Is there anyone taking his place locally?

Here’s a great way to use a ham license for public benefit!

And the survey says . . .

We have taken a survey of our members about the interests for programs for our club meetings.  We have received some excellent responses and are trying to figure out how to best meet the interests and needs of the club.

Come join us at our meetings on the first Tuesday of each month and learn more about our great hobby!

It’s more than a hobby!!  This is tornado season in North Alabama, and we are ready to provide storm spotter service to the National Weather service.  If you are a trained spotter, call in on 147.00+ during storms and help us keep our families and neighborhoods safe in severe weather.

Another Year

It’s the end of January and 2009 is already 1/12th over!  We have already started a few plans for Field Day in June.

If you want to be a member of the club, annual dues need to be paid immediately!  Dues are only $15, and each additional family member is only $5 more.  What a bargain!

Come out to a club meeting on the first Tuesday night of the month at the Morgan County Courthouse!  We’d love to have some fresh ideas to keep our club active and growing!

November Meeting Change

Because the Morgan County Courthouse will be the place where votes will be counted, the club has agreed to change the location of the November 4th business meeting, which will include the election of officers for 2009.

We will assemble at Mama Blue’s restaurant on the Beltline in Decatur.  It was formerly Barnhill’s Buffet, and is located near the mall.  We will, of course, be enjoying the food, beginning at 6:00pm on Tuesday.

So come to the meeting, get full of good food, and get elected to an office!  What a great way to spend a Tuesday evening!
