Let’s Talk

Amateur Radio is good for some things, but it is not necessarily the best tool to share knowledge and converse widely among a group. A free tool that is available that helps facilitate this type of conversation is groups.io. This is a tool we can use to share ideas, experiences, ask questions, and so forth among club members and those locally interested in amateur radio. We’ve set up a group called WB5SPA. Stop by and drop a note and let’s get the conversation started.

Will it be a dream…or a dud?

Tonight at 6pm will be the monthly meeting of the Spa Amateur Radio Association. This month’s meeting will be a hybrid of a net on the 146.88 repeater and a Zoom meeting. How will this work you ask? Nobody knows – we’re strictly flying by the seat of our pants! So, you’ll have to show up to see where it falls on the spectrum between astounding success and massive dumpster fire. To join via Zoom:

It’s like Deja Vu all over again (and again, one more time)

Much like <insert last 2020 month name here>, a face-to-face meeting is not advisable for
<insert current 2020 month name here> . Our meeting for <insert current 2020 month name here> will be an On-The-Air Net at 6:00PM on the 146.880 repeater. Attached below are the meeting minutes for <insert last 2020 month name here>. Framed copies can be made available on receipt of a large financial gift to the club.

All joking aside, the net will be held on August 11 at 6:00PM.
