KIØKY’s Presentation at the April 2021 MARC Meeting

Here is Steve Schroder, KIØKY’s presentation from the April, 2020, club meeting. Note—the club doesn’t have its own YouTube channel (yet??) so it’s currently hosted on my channel as an unlisted, non-monetized video.

Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Royce for taking the net.

Friday was the club meeting, we had 21 in attendance including 4 guest and 2 via Zoom. (Tom K2PJ & Mark N5LFE via Zoom) Our guests were Bill AB0LG and Scott KF0EHW and Vince and Marilyn who are interested in getting their ham license.

We also want to welcome Stephen K1YWH our latest member.

I want to thank Steve KI0KY for putting together a great presentation regarding our Sunday night net and keeping a communication log. I will check with Dave to see if I can post it on our site for us to refer back to.

I have the badges that were ordered, so get in touch with me and we can make arrangements to get them to you.

Anyone interested in signing up for snack for May?

Don’t forget you can sign up to receive club emails via this link.

Next breakfast will be in Olathe May 1st

TALARC net

Hi all- The American Legion Amateur Radio Club, TALARC is holding a 10 meter net on Mondays at 1900 hr on 28410 MHz simplex. It is an open net, with no controller. Should the net pick up more people checking in, we will change over to a controlled net similar to the MARC Sunday night net. We look forward to hearing from everyone.

Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Chris for taking the net.

For those of you on the net, remember if interested in trying your hand at “net control” contact Chris so he can add you to the schedule.

Friday was the club meeting. We had a total of 20 in attendance 17 in person (including one guest Steve KF0EGJ who passed his tech and general in February.) and three via zoom.

It was suggested I poll the members so I sent out email regarding club badges. Please locate and reply back to the email.

I am working with our vendor with regards to issues with the shirts and getting the missing hats.

Have a great week.

President’s report 3-14-21

Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Dick for taking the net and doing a fantastic job managing the net for so many years. Also for recruiting Stan AD0ST who’s first time was last week and did a wonderful job. If anyone is interested reach out to Chris so we can add you into the net manager rotation schedule.

We have located two companies to do name badges. I will present information at Friday’s Club meeting.

We have also purchased a microphone in hopes of solving the issue of people on Zoom not being able to hear what’s being said. Stan W0LQ and I will practice with it to iron out any bugs.

March is out budget meeting so we will create and approved that this Friday. Hoping not to have a repeat of last year’s cancellation of events.

This has been a busy week of collaborations; John and I worked on membership. Remember dues are due in January, if you haven’t paid by this club meeting we will take you off the active file and place you as an inactive member.

Chris and I collaborated on policies and procedure with regards to flash drive and possible program ideas.

Lew is hoping finalize our calendar and looking for a few dates to fill that in.

Steve and I have communicated regarding next VE session 5/22 and Auxcom will get together 4/3 after breakfast and “Junk in the Trunk” for a tour of the facility.

I am following up on the shirts and hats and hope to have them at Friday’s meeting as well.

Board meeting tomorrow.

Have a great week!
