President’s report 3-17-19

Good evening to everyone on the net.  Friday was our club meeting. We had 23 people in attendance. I’d like to thank everyone who showed up and participated.  As I mentioned my primary focuses for this year will be Information, participation and communication.

That said I’d like to thank the executive board who have been great supporting me in my new role as president. They are doing a fantastic job to make me look good.

I’d also like to thank Dave Casler KE0OG for his assistance with the website challenges. He’s been terrific dealing with the hosting company so I can continue to post and update items to accomplish my goal of communicating better and enlisting more participation.

Speaking of participation, unlike the government we were able to pass our club budget for 2019. Thank you all for your insight and input.

We had two visitors Issac KG5LKT and Eli N0ELI formerly KE0UQR. Also correction Eli was 11 when he got his tech license. Next week is his birthday so we sang happy birthday and Gary KD0UPN gave him a radio.

We had reports from all the officers and committees and now that Feb minutes have been approved I will upload them to the website.   That’s all I have for now KK6RNV back to net.

Additional notes: During the meeting I mentioned I would include link for http://wwv100.com/

    I would like to thank everyone for the Get Well card. It was wonderful to hear from you all!
    However, something of a correction: When our Montrose ARC cards were designed, there was a design flaw on them which I noticed and hand-corrected before mailing. Now that more cards have been printed, the same correction needs to be made: The visual Morse code across the top of the card is correct. It spells “MONTROSE”. However, the code along the right hand side of the card should read “ARC”. Please correct the printing mistake by inserting some dashes to read ” . ._. -.-.”
    A corrected code design will reflect better on the club. Sincerely, Kathleen Raines, K3FZZ.

    Thank you for the get well card; it was great hearing from the club! However, a correction is required on all cards going out: The Morse Code signal across the card top is correct, but the one down the right hand side is wrong, something I pointed out, but which was never corrected on the original model Loretta Casler designed. I had to hand-correct each card before mailing. The card should read Montrose ARC in code. Please correct all cards on the right hand side to read: “ARC” or . ._. _._. Just use a red marker to insert the correct dashes.
    This attention to detail is important as a corrected code design on the card will reflect better on the Montrose Amateur Radio Club.
    Sincerely, Kathleen Raines, K3FZZ
