Latest News from the Radio Club.
Notes from 4th October 2022 club meeting:-
Going forward we will have regular meetings on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month.
We are planning a break at the end of this year for the festive season, there will be no club meeting on the 20th of December or the 3rd of January 2023.
We are expecting the space for the repeater to be available from the end of this month, so assuming everything goes to plan we can get the enclosure which Andy is currently storing, in place early next month.
There is a small change to the arrangements with the repeater regarding the club. We will need to pay for the electric it uses (due to rising energy costs etc..).
The proposal suggested tonight is that each club member puts a small regular amount into ‘the pot’ to cover this. A proposal was put forward that each member could set up a simple standing order and this could be paid automatically into a bank account each month, this could then be paid to the club at the end of each month and any balance carried forward. Once the repeater has been operational for a month or two we will have a good idea of the cost, but hopefully £1 or £2 per member, each month should cover it. We are open to other proposals from any club member regarding methods of regular funding, ideally the process should be automatic and simple. All ideas are open for discussion at this stage.
Next Meeting 18th October 7:30pm at the club.
