Presidents message - November 15th

15 Nov 2018 9:41 PM | Stephane Raimbault (Administrator)

We had another great general meeting at the end of October with a great presentation by David James, VA7VK/VK3IA on the Communications and life at Macquarie Island from 1901 to today. It was a wonderful talk and view on Antarctic expeditions include one that David was part of in the 70s. He unexpectedly discovered the world of being a rare DX on the HF bands.

At the general meeting we also had a general discussion topic on how to better welcome guests and new members. Dave Cason, our club Vice President has created a discussion topic in our member forum on the website for club members to participate further in the conversation. I encourage all club members, new and experienced to participate and offer suggestions to this important topic as without new members, the club will stagnate and will slowly disappear overtime.

We will dedicate the November general meeting to a round table discussion to introduce the members, their interests, and any active projects that they are working on or have questions. If you have not had the opportunity to introduce yourself or meet other club members, this is the general meeting to attend if you haven’t attended one before.

See you at the next general meeting which takes place at the Calgary Sports Car Club on November 27th at 7pm.

73 de VE6NR,

Stephane Raimbault
