Wow the turnout and enthusiasm was great. 9 student’s total, of which we have two young lady’s attending the class (10&12). There were several guest to stop by, Don (KF0ARQ), Richard (KE0QYA), Dewayn (KB9TQJ), & Bret (W0VK). We had some good discussions and great comradery in the class. Next class will be held on the 25th 8-4. I would encourage you to come by say hello to the new potential Hams. There is already discussion of wanting a General class so spread the word. Well that’s all I have for now. Really looking forward to getting this group tested and hearing them on the air.

Our elected officers ran unopposed.
The previous Club Officers were thanked for their service and devotion to the club. Paul Withers – KD0ETL ; Brooks Baker – KA0JWA; Lana Langford – KD0IZG.
The club would not be where it’s at without all the support of the members and the work of the officers. As we look forward to 2020 please help us grow and expand our base and community involvement by participation. This can be as big as owning and leading a project for the club or just being that Operator that doesn’t let a call on the repeater go unanswered. Lets make it a great year and “Make Amateur Radio Great Again!”
Thanks to the following for checking in to the SPARK weather net today: W3MEB, KØTV, NØXG, KDØETL, KDØWLB, NØEE, KEØVCR, KDØOPS, & KDØWXT. Great job everyone!!
Special thanks to Richard – KEØQYA for taking on the task of Managing net control.
For all who were not at the last meeting. “Doc” W3MEB is ordering new club shirts. Get with him if you would like to order one. Please ask him about the pockets!
Ok, If you missed the meeting yesterday we won’t blame you, but you now owe Doughnuts the next meeting. We know who you are! Just joking about that to getting your attention!
It was decided to try to open up a Simplex net on 147.030 with a change ( NO TONE), this will be every Wednesday evening at 8:00 PM. The purpose is to establish a common freq. if the repeater is down and to see how efficient this is to work. Hope to hear you on the air! Please contact Paul Withers (KDØETL) firstname.lastname@example.org
Get your club decal while they are in stock. For $5.00 you too can proudly promote your support of the S.P.A.R.K. ! At 4″ in diameter that is $1.25 an inch! Talk about value. Keep in mind the proceeds from these are donated back to the club for some new potential projects to grow the club.
