Members met at the club to begin the relocation process. The repeaters were disassembled and made ready for relocating at Eric's home. As he is on a hill-top, we expect to have better coverage for our repeater than we currently had.
Our directors met to refine plans for moving the repeater. A weekly net was also initiated. It was decided to initially use the 10m band until the club repeater is relocated and operational. Times will be Thursdays at 7:30 on 28.690MHz.
Club directors met to refine the by-laws and continue the planning for relocating the club facilities. Eric has agreed to house the repeater until a permanent location can be found.
We have held our Annual meeting and elected Ralph (VE7OM) as President, Eric (VE7EGK) Vice-President, Ross (VA7NRW) Treasurer and Stuart (VA7CRH) Secretary. Main items for the new year will be to relocate the club facilities as the current building is being demolished.
WRARC is now an affiliated club with RAC. Our club number is 574.
Ralph assisted Eric setup his Carolina Windom. It is not in its final configuration as one end requires a taller mast than what was currently available. Despite being a bit low it was still able to pickup South Africa and Japan with reasonable clarity on 20m.
