Our April 2nd meeting will be held at Sedalia-Pettis County EMA Headquarters located at 1511 N. Ohio in Sedalia beginning at 8:30 am. After the meeting we will conduct a testing session for locals who want to upgrade or for new Tech’s. The new fee passed by congress of $35.00 will take effect on April 19th. This fee has to be paid directly to the FCC. The fee is for new licenses, upgrades,changing to a vanity call sign, and renewals. You will still have to pay the $15.00 fee to the club the day you test. This fee cover the cost of the testing materials. If you would like to test after our meeting you must pre-register with Bret(W0VK), his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the meeting we will be setting up the Ecom trailer and participating in the Missouri QSO party. Several members are bringing goodies to eat for lunch. This will be a great opportunity to hang out and fellowship with members. If you would like to bring some munchies that would be great. If you haven’t yet just a reminder that it’s time to pay your club dues for 2021. Hope to see everyone there.

What a meeting! At our meeting this morning we had 36 in attendance. We are truly blessed to have such a strong group of members who are dedicated to promoting ham radio in Central Missouri.
Daren (KD0OPS) started us out by a special presentation on DMR. We discussed the Missouri QSO party coming up in April, a Scott Joplin special event station, and Sparkfest 2022 just to name a few topics.
After the meeting we conducted a VE test session. We are proud to announce that Leo & Lori Shuart passed and our now Spark’s newest Technicians.
Our next meeting will be April 2nd at EMA Headquarters.
Don(KF0ARQ) left and Bret(WOVK) right presented Don Weaver(center) a plaque for his generous donation of 2 limousine golf carts for Sparkfest 2021. His donation made it possible for us to take care of our vendors and guests due to a funeral being held at the church the same day and us having to use the parking lot across the street. Mr. Weaver is a tremendous supporter of our community and organizations such as ours. Mr. Weaver is looking forward to supporting Sparkfest 2022 this October. Thanks again Don
