President’s report 7/11/2021

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

We had our club meeting Friday. We had a total of 27 in attendance 26 in person and one via zoom, I even got to meet Dick KC0JEA.

Again I want to Thank everyone that helped and for their participation in Field Day: Matt and Lisa for the use of their motor home, Stan for rescuing us with last minute laptops, Bill and Stan for bringing their RVs to create the wind breaks, as well as everyone that helped set up, tear down, operate, log, and Royce for coordinating it all. Dave Casler has submitted out info and will be making corrections this week after getting additional info at the meeting. Thanks Dave!

This weekend is the Hard Rock 100 so I am sure most of us will be doing last minute preparations for that. If there are any questions please reach out to Chris.

Have a great week!

President’s Report 7-4-21

Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Dick for taking the net and switching things up. You did a fantastic job! Good to hear from hams in Gunnison and Nucla tonight.

We had our club breakfast yesterday. We had 13 in attendance by the time Stan and I left for Cherry Days!

Reminder due to Hard Rock 100 on the 3rd weekend (16th -18th) our club meeting has been moved to Friday the 9th (same Zoom link) and the board meeting will be tomorrow evening (same zoom link).

Stan and I did hear back from Dave Casler that the files we sent were received for the contacts and the photos for Field Day. I also heard that Steve N7SE made come contacts from his home station and have submitted them to ARRL.

Happy Independence Day!

President’s report 6-27-21

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

Wow what a fantastic and successful Field Day! Thanks so much to everyone that came out and helped set up and tear down and work the stations. You guys ROCK!

This year we had 39 visitors, (I recounted after the net) and helped 8 people “Get on the Air”! I was busy doing tours and talking about the benefits and capabilities of ham radios, but managed to get a few contacts on 40 meters. Our newest member Bob joins us from Gunnison. KS9W and was a huge asset. We hope to see much more of him.

Royce shared we made 1184 contacts. If there were any individual stations that operated they can submit their logs as part of our club. Montrose county amateur radio club so we can add their contact to our numbers.

It was great to see some hams that haven’t participate in a while come out, as well as meet some very interesting visitors.

Have a great week!

Last call to RSVP to dinner Saturday night

I have a total of 31 people that plan to attend dinner Saturday night. If you haven’t reached out to me, or rsvp’d at the meeting, please let me know by tomorrow that you plan to attend, since that is when I will be calling in the head count to Jimmer’s to place our order.

Reminder, bring something to share and your own place setting, silverware, chair etc.
Let me know if you have any questions.

We will start setting up about 8am Saturday am and will need lots of help since we will be erecting the canopies. We will operate from noon Saturday to noon Sunday. We will also need help tearing down Sunday afternoon.

Looking forward to a great event!
