Guess what? It’s February already! I don’t know about you, but to me this is the longest month, even though it has the fewest number of days.
To start off the long, drawn-out month of February, the Decatur Amateur Radio Club will hold its monthly meeting at the usual time and location. That’s Tuesday evening, February 1st, at 7:30pm in the basement auditorium of the Morgan County Courthouse in Decatur. Please come to the lower entrance off of Lee Street, and please be at least 5 minutes early so we can let you in the building, which remains locked.
As a program after the regular business is concluded, Allen Blair AB4CD will present a program on Winlink, the amateur radio e-mail system, Allen and Mike Allred AE4G have begun “Winlink Wednesdays” to promote the use of Winlink in the area. Come hear an interesting discussion of a different facet of our radio activity.
Don’t forget about paying your membership dues for this year. The club raised the the annual dues to $20.00 beginning in 2021 (this was the first increase in anyone’s memory stretching back more than 30 years!). Bring your $20.00 (and $5.00 each for additional family members) and pay the treasurer for the year. Dues are annual, beginning in January and expiring in December. If you’d rather do it the old-fashioned postal way, mail a check to DARC, PO Box 9, Decatur, AL 35602-0009. And you can pay for multiple years if you wish (sorry, no volume discounts!).
One continuing reminder: the roster of current club members is now online at www.HamClubOnline.com. Set up your free account and if you have paid your dues and the Secretary has updated the database you should see that you’re associated with the DARC. If there’s an issue, let me know.
See you at the courthouse on Tuesday evening!
