Club meetings will start having some structure. We still value an open floor forum, but we realize that sometimes new or potential hams want to know what our meetings will cover. So starting this coming up meeting the following Agenda will be followed.
1. Introductions (go around the room and introduce ourselves) (about 10 minutes long or shorter)
2. Ham Radio 101 Take one or two topics that hams should know about – great for new hams or those looking to get their license. We will be going through some of the questions from the testing pool and discuss. We might even cover an entire segment of the test. Those who are starting to take the test, this is the time for you to show up and be able to ask those questions you have. This will cover all three levels, NOT just the Tech pool.
3. Guest speaker (about an hour and if we have one). We might not have a guest speaker…this is where the club members come in. If there is a topic you would like to present, notify Orion, KE7VLC@WM7RC.org, and he will get you on the list.
4. Free forum (This is where the Show and tell will come into play if someone wants to show something, other than guest speakers). For example, I won the FT-70D at the Superfest. This is a great spot to show it off, show some features. Or if you just built an antenna and you want to show it off….great time to do so.
