The President's Comments
 

Happy New Year to all of you. After another great meeting this month, we got a small taste of the activity some of you had for our club DX Challenge.  Classes for entry are listed on the club web page.  Please submit your score, in a single category, by the end of this month.  High scores from members will be posted next month and again at the February SADXA meeting.  I will try to get certificates prepared by the next meeting, time permitting, or by the end of February.  you can send your scores by e-mail to me at [email protected].  

I'd like to have a discussion early this year about structuring a challenge for this year.  Please bring your thoughts on any changes you would like to see for discussion in February.  

I want to thank you for your election of SADXA  officers for 2020.  I am pleased to serve as your president for another year.  And I know that Dennis Dismachek, N6ITY, your new Vice President and Mike Casey, W7TUS, both look forward to serving SADXA this year.  And I don't want to forget thanking Bruce Betterly for agreeing to continue serving as Social Chairman for another year.  

The Board of Officers will be meeting shortly to develop club goals for 2020.  Among them will be to continue to find ways to encourage participation of the members in working DX throughout the year and, to provide meaningful monthly programs relevant to the DX aspect of our shared hobby.  

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our next meeting.

Alan Komenski -  AC2K

Editors Note:  The meeting for June was successful with AC2K- Alan at the helm. There have been some problems with the downloading and installation of Zoom by some due to the bogus site that installs a bunch of software on your machine.  Just make sure you use thee zoom.US.  There should be only one entry in your installed files.

 

Next Meeting
16 July  2020

TBD

 

Last Meeting
18 June 2020 

   AC2K - Alan opened the meeting saying the presentation would be first and then we could have a discussion.  Other thatn Alan saying he has 155 countries now, mostly on 20 meters, there were no .  

  SADXA Presents  

Through the medium of , we had a very interesting presentation by K5GS - Gene abount his VP8PJ South Orkney DXpedition.  Gene said he'd been on five DXpeditions since 2012 and this one was pretty difficult but was successful thanks to the efforts of K6NRJ - Nigel Jolly and the Braveheart. We've seen hime many times on these extreme Southern Hemisphere DXpeditions.  If you missed this presentation, you missed a good one.

 

FINAL COMMENT

Please send your DXploits to [email protected]. I makes it so much easier to get it straight for the record. I won't be held responsible for not being able to record it properly at the meetings. 

NOTES

I have added a few additional links below as recommended.  I've received several new pictures of current members, but I'm still short a few as well as the bios.  I suppose it's not absolutely necessary that the page have your bio, privacy issues, you know.  However, after all, this IS an amateur radio organization and Hams like to talk and brag too. Hi, Hi.   I will be bringing my trusty camera to take pictures and I welcome any picture that you might prefer to replace the ones that I post.  Just e-mail a suitable picture to [email protected]

Thanks.  de WD7F - John

PS:  Any other amateur radio links you would like here just for fun?
