January 2015 Meeting

January 5th, 2015 Meeting – Benton, Arkansas

We had our first meeting of 2015 and also–our FIRST QUARTERLY MEETING!

We had an amazing first meeting of the new year on MONDAY, JANUARY 5th, 2015 at the Western Sizzlin’ in Benton, just off I-30 at the Congo Exit.  We had 30+ members and guests present, many of which faithfully paid their membership dues!  Our club treasury is improving but we still need more of you who have been members in years past to ante up.  Remember that you can pay your dues online by clicking here.

During the meeting, Steve, W5NLR, printed nice membership certificates on-the-spot for everyone who paid their dues.   Newly elected Vice President, Tim Leet, K5TEL presented an overview program on the ARLinks System and gave us a much needed update on the repair or disrepair status of all repeaters.  Tim also did an impressive demonstration of the DMR (digital mobile radio) repeater system and talked to a number of hams around the nation during the five minute demo.

At the end of the meeting we held a $1 raffle for a NEW Baofeng dual-band, hand-held radio and some other nice prizes such as Milwaukee and Crescent tools.  Mike, N5UZT, won three of the five prizes!  Wow!  How lucky can you get?   Surely he left the club meeting and went to buy a lottery ticket–it was his lucky day!

Mark your calendars NOW for the next meeting on Monday night, April 6, 2015.  The location and program will be announced soon!  Check back here often!
