UPDATE: ZOOM ONLY TONIGHT. Friday Evening SIARA VHF Net and Virtual Meeting @ 7:30 CHECK-IN 5/15/2020

In an effort to continue on a normal, SIARA will be holding a Monthly VHF virtual meeting/net on the 146.640 repeater.  This is will allow us to do a face to face meeting, and get on the radio at the same time.  But, here is the catch.  This will be accomplished by using Zoom for VIDEO ONLY, and the audio channel will be ON THE REPEATER.  Let’s try this for fun at first.  If it doesn’t work, then we will just do a over the air meeting.

Here is the agenda:

  • 7:30pm: Virtual “Zoom Room” will open early for virtual check-ins.
    8:00pm: (146.640 repeater) SIARA will set the tones for Net mode
    • NCO: Matt Bonadies KB9YOJ
    • Backup NCO: Chris Eller N9FRS
  • 8:00 – 8:15:  Check in period
  • 8:15 – 8:30:  Meeting Business
  • 8:30 – ????: 
    • Fund collection for insurance status
    • Officer Elections reminder
    • FD2020 planning status
  • ACTIVITY:  Find your RADIO!!  Sherwood Engineering RX test data and group discussion.

Here is the link to the Zoom meeting.  If you don’t have Zoom, please follow the instructions in the link provided to install the App.  Everything is mostly automatic.
