We hope everyone had a very, merry Christmas, and we wish everyone a happy and prosperous New Year from the officers and Board of Directors of the Thibodaux Amateur Radio Club!
In 2015 we have plans to repair the antenna on 147.30 (tone 114.8) in Theriot, LA and bring the radiation pattern back to normalcy. At 550 feet elevation, this repeater should easily access St John, St James, and St Charles parishes via mobile station with no problem. Remember, the 147.30 site has IRLP and Echolink capability, possibly raising the consideration for ARES Region 3 Group to use this repeater in lieu of 147.39 in Gray, LA.
At the next club meeting we hope to discuss fundraising ideas such as collecting membership dues via PayPal on the W5YL.ORG website in addition to the current manual method. Also, online fundraisers, like IndieGoGo, as well as other fundraising opportunities will be discussed.
We also hope to firm up plans to have a class to teach prospective hams what they need to learn to pass the Technician Class license exam.
Everyone be sure to have a SAFE and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
