Club Net - Tuesday August 14th

Well!!!!!! It certainly was a virtually none existant club net tonight! Only two stations were on frequency all the time the clubnet was supposed to happen!!! Just myself (Nial VK3XX) & Cliff VK3CSL. The silence was defening at 20.00 hours..... Even more so at 20.20 hours..... Yes!!!! Only crickets heard!!! With short breaks being given to allow people to enter the conversation at many intervals.... Not another living creature was about..... Trust there were plenty of, in radio terms SANDBAGGERS!!!! Just content to listen......AND.....probably wanting to absorb any potential gossip!!!! Sorry people....nothing doing!!!!!

Even if there is no assigned net controller that does not mean that the weekly club net is not being conducted..... It can just be informal chat.... Radio is supposed to be a fun activity.... So lets make it so.....

Lets trust that next weeks club net shows more activity than the effort that was shown tonight...... Come on people.....get with the programme here....


General Meeting - Friday August 3rd

On another note, trust everyone that attended the monthly club meeting had a good night with Rod VK3FAB presentation of video editing process! Myself was not in attendence due to work committments in another part of the country... Rod, it would have been really good to see this for myself..... A big well done Sir!!!!!


Annual JOTA/JOTI - October 19th to 21st 2018
