2021 Update

Happy New Year to all members of WCARC. Hoping everyone had a great holiday season and this notice finds you well.

There are two items we need to update everyone on regarding 2021.

1. Membership: Due to Covid-19 and the hardships presented to each of us over the last year, the executive council has discussed dues for the 2021 season. For 2021, we are waving all dues to WCARC. Our account is in good standing and we now have a reserve of money to help handle issues that come up during the year. That said, we think it is prudent to waive fees as a way of supporting those who have supported the club over the last two years. Also, if you know of anyone who would like to join, this is a great opportunity to join for a time at no charge.

2. Current club officials are:

President – William Raper, KW1LL
Vice President – Daniel Marcum, KK4MKZ
Secretary – Steve Kujawski, NN9J
Treasurer – Joan O’Connor, KF4DAM
White Co. EC – William Raper, KW1LL

If you are unable to attend the Over the Air meeting Tuesday (1/12) and would like to vote for anyone in any office position, please email your vote entry to me or the Secretary (Steve NN9J) and we will enter your vote. Currently the roster includes anyone on this email list. You may enter a vote for any one on the list to any position. We will also offer a chance to vote over the air on Tuesday. The results of the tally will be used to assign the new officers. The meeting will start after check-ins. The normal Net time is 7:30pm.

73,

William

On-Air Meetings and 2021 dues

In lieu of recent events regarding COVID-19, WCARC meetings will be held via radio on the 146.685 repeater until further notice.

The date and time remain the same, second Tuesday each month at 7:00 pm. The on-air meeting will take the place of the ARES net on this night. The 443.775 repeater will also be monitored during meeting time.

More information about the repeater frequencies and PL tones can be found on the “Nets/Repeaters/Frequencies” page on this website.

Additionally, for 2021 we are waving all dues to WCARC. Our account is in good standing and we now have a reserve of money to help handle issues that come up during the year. That said, we think it is prudent to waive fees as a way of supporting those who have supported the club over the last two years. Also, if you know of anyone who would like to join, this is a great opportunity to join for a time at no charge.

We hope everyone is safe and healthy, and hope to hear you on the air!
