Great January Meeting

Thanks to the good crowd for the January meeting of the SEKARC! Great turnout, good food, fresh coffee, friendly eyeball QSO's and an informative presentation introduction to the LT Spice IV program. A free program to download but full of useful aids for building and analyzing circuits! Thanks to Bill WBØLXZ!

We had a few first time attendees and added a couple of new hams to the roster! Member Romel Downs KEØAKO had the 2 newest hams, his sons KEØKOW Zach and KEØKYU Tyler asked to join the Roster! Matt KEØKGV attended his first official meeting after participating in other club activities and we also had a new attendee Greg WI4T from near Lamar joined us as well! Welcome to them and thanks for all that attended! The SEKARC is still growing and 2017 should be a fantastic year!

The official business took care of a couple of things as well. It was moved, seconded and approved that we keep the current officers for a 2nd year as we did before! President Jack WDØCFH, Vice-President Joe WØMQY (wom-quee) and Jeff Chancey KAØEGE Sec/Treasurer will retain their offices for 2017.

It was also approved to move forward with adding Echolink to the clubs UHF repeater. We have the Raspberry Pi and internet access we just need to build an interface to connect them all. We will provide updates as progress is made. While you wait.... if you haven't already, download the Echolink app for your smartphone or pc and get your license setup and navigate around some. It's a nice tool, and method to keep in touch while out of range of the repeater!


I see you Ron......
