WCARA Club meeting on the 30th of April, On-the-Air

All Members and Friends, the April 30th Club Meeting will be held virtually  at 7:30 pm on Thursday the 30th using both the K4CYP Repeaters.  There will be no net that night.

The meeting will be held virtually over the radio.  We will be using both K4CYP repeaters (2m and 70cm).  The meeting will take the place of the Thursday evening Net.  The meeting will start at 7:30.   Pete Wene, WA5T will be net control for the meeting.  The meet/net will be formal and Net Control will be taking all check ins for the first 10 minutes or so and directing all comments/traffic.  If you have a radio and can hear the net but can not hit the repeater then we will take your check in by texting Pete Wene, WA5T, at 919-440-2937…….please lets limit the Text check ins to only those who can hear the repeater but cannot check in.

The agenda will go thusly; After check ins are complete, WA5T will turn it over to Wayne (KK4PWA), Mr. President, for the opening Remarks.

After opening remarks WA5T will call for Secretary’s, treasure’s and Trustee’s reports.

After each report WA5T will as ask for approval……instead of going through the role a positive response will be “no response”.  If anyone disagrees then they should throw out their call sign and WA5T will respond….text for a negative response as well.   We will assume there has been a “motion to accept” in all cases.

Once the reports are final and all questions/comments are addressed WA5T will move on to ..

“old business” followed by “new business”.  Once that is complete WA5T will open the floor for comments.

If you have something you would like to discuss please let WA5T know and he will add it to the agenda.

Again this is new ground so please use your best radio manners and courtesy……I hope to hear you all on next Thursday, 7:30, both K4CYP repeaters.

For more information contact Pete Wene (WA5T) at 919-440-2937 or pete@wene.net
