Net for February 11, 2016 on the 447.100- repeater, PL tone of 100

The net was opened at 8:30pm with Joe Costello, WH6QV, as Net Control.

Announcements:

A new position in the DHRA for Membership Coordinator has been created and the Officers will be looking for a candidate to fill this position by appointment.

The DHRA will be connecting any amateur radio service or activity hours that you may spend, monthly.  These hours will be communicated to the the Salt Lake County ARES (SL ARES) (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) group, a local public service group of licensed volunteer amateur radio operators ready to serve the community when needed in times of disaster, since the DHRA is affiliated with SL ARES.  This group is sponsored by the ARRL, a national organization that is our advocate with Congress to help ensure our continued meaningful access to the radio spectrum.  SL ARES reports regional service hours to the ARRL to help them prove to the FCC and Congress that amateur radio is important, used and needed.  Stay tuned for further info.

Our new Net Coordinator, Joe Costello, WH6QV, is looking for volunteer operators to run Net Control on Thursday nites.  If you are interested in helping out and/or getting experience being Net Control, contact Joe by email to wh6qv@aol.com.
