A Conflict of interest policy is required for our 501(c)(3). The following was submitted at the January 9th meeting. It will be discussed & voted upon at the February 13th meeting.
The following Bylaw amendment was proposed at our Jan 9th meeting. Per our bylaws, this will be discussed & voted upon at our Feb 13th meeting.
We’ve been working to correct the issue which causes some e-mails (most notably, the minutes) to the club reflector to be displayed as a jumbled mess.
This looks bad, and posts to the website the same way. Since this then needs to be repaired, it causes more work for both your secretary, and myself. So, we found a fix that will ensure proper formatting of all future e-mails. We are leaving qth.net. Read more
Good afternoon everyone, Our January 9th meeting was full of interesting bits of information and activity. We are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on our legal matters thanks to John Myers KD8MQ. We will be voting on two(2) items of importance during new business segment of our February 13, 2019 meeting. The first will be; “Conflict of Interest”, the second will be “By-Law Amendment” These are part of the legal work that has been taking place.
The revised AARC Tri-Fold club information pamphlets are here and were distributed to club members in attendance, they will be available at all future club activities along with our new business cards. We purchased dual purpose plastic pamphlet and business card holders and they will soon arrive and be distributed to various locations in the city and surrounding areas of Alliance. Club Secretary Dave Moreno KE8JLI spent countless hours on both the new club business cards and the revised pamphlet and we owe him a big thank you for all the hours he spent on these two items, thanks Dave.
Winter Field Day is January 26-27,and it will be held at Sebring Camp where we were at last year and Tony Schillig KD8BBK is the chairperson for the event. Contact Tony KD8BBK if you can help in any way. There will be a chili cook off, and if you can bring a side dish to share that would be greatly appreciated.
The trustees will be conducting an election at the end of our February 13th meeting, and we still need someone to step up and be a candidate for Vice President for the 2019 year.
John Myers KD8MQ has volunteered to be our Program Chairperson and he would appreciate any suggestions for topics and thanks so far to Rick WD8AYC for your suggestions.
We could sure use some additional check in’s on the Thursday night nets, and especially the 2 Meter net 145.370 at 9PM.

The purpose of our annual simplex activity is to improve our station and antenna capabilities, and to test our coverage areas on simplex frequencies. These may be very important in times of emergency, when repeaters have failed and simplex is the only method of emergency communication. We are NOT giving any consideration for backup power- this exercise is aimed at testing antennas and determining coverage areas.Read more
