Greetings! Fall (or Autumn, if you prefer) is here. Surely you’ve noticed he additional tints on the tree leaves and the harvesters in the fields. You definitely have NOT noticed significantly cooler temperatures and increased rainfall, but give it time.
Speaking of time, it keeps marching on and bringing new months every 4-1/2 weeks or so. That means once again that the time has rolled around for the regular monthly meeting of the Decatur Amateur Radio Club at the Morgan County Courthouse. We plan to meet at 6:30 this month (NOTE THE TIME CHANGE, PLEASE!) in the basement auditorium of the courthouse. Please arrive early at the lower entrance off of Lee Street. The building is secure and we must keep someone stationed at the door to let visitors in.
The meeting should be streamed on Microsoft Teams. If you are unable to attend, log into the meeting on your computer and participate anyway!
Here is the online information:
- Title: DARC
- When: Occurs the first Tuesday of every month . . . from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM.
- Organizer: EMA Operator <MCCEMA@morgancounty-al.gov>

If you have issues, please contact me at this email address or contact the club president Thomas Garner KN4MDE at his address (his callsign @ outlook.com).
The next scheduled business meeting will be on November 7th, 2023.
Please spread the word to fellow hams or those who are wanting to take a test for a new or upgraded license that the Decatur club is now scheduling license testing every month on the first Saturday of each month. The testing sessions will be held in the Decatur Public Library on 6th Avenue NE (Highway 31) at 1:00. Please bring ID (especially your FRN, which is required on the license application) and your $15 fee. And, most importantly, PLEASE send an email to DecaturHamTest@w4atd.org so we can have the testing materials prepared and available for you. October 7th is our next scheduled testing date. And if you are a Volunteer Examiner or want to help in some way, please let us know! And if you send an email and do not get a timely response, please let the secretary know.
Remember also that 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 us know.
See you on Tuesday evening, October 3rd at the courthouse at 6:30! Don’t miss it!
