As many of you are aware this past week the Governor declared a State of Emergency after seven individuals in the state of Wisconsin having tested positive for COVID-19 (the coronavirus). We’ve also seen recent action from many organizations suspending travel, conferences, classes and events. As part of these actions, we the Board of Directors, believe it would be best to cancel the in-person portion of our March Membership meeting and instead conduct it online via Web Conference.
If you haven’t already, please be sure to register for the Web Conference here. We are planning to conduct the meeting in its entirety online which will include voting. We will be having a short intro video in how to connect to the web conference and what to expect available on the website next week.
Please also be sure that if you want to vote and haven’t sent in your 2020 dues that you send those in using our website here. We know this is going to be different, but we hope you all understand with the ongoing threat of the virus and wanting to ensure the safety of our membership.
Good Evening Everyone!
Thank you to everyone that has sent in their annual updates so far! We’re completely caught up as of this evening on any that have been received as of today with the exception of those that had emissions and/or system callsign changes as additional paperwork will be needed.
With all the updates received, we’ve also updated the repeater listing on the website, so feel free to take a peek if you have any questions on whether your update has been received or processed.
Just a couple reminders as well when submitting your annual updates:
- If you have an emissions type change (i.e., moving to Fusion, D-Star or DMR), this does require an updated Form S before we can officially review it.
- When submitting your annual update, please utilize one of the options, not multiples as it increases the processing time.
Thank you again to all those that have already submitted their annual updates! We really appreciate your help in keeping our database clean and accurate.
If you have any questions about your coordination, please email CoordinationSecretary@wi-repeaters.org.
Just a friendly reminder that WAR’s next membership meeting is next month!
If you’d like to attend, it will be held at the Ham Radio Outlet store in Milwaukee on Saturday, March 21st. Directions are on our website. Registration will start at 9:30 AM with the meeting starting promptly at 10 AM. Included in the meeting will be the election of four of the seven board member positions.
If you are unable to make it, you can also register to join here via an online web conference so that you will be able to listen in and even ask a question while the meeting is taking place. You will not be able to vote on any issue while on the audio bridge, but we will try to make sure that your question or opinion is heard to the rest of the membership. After registration, you will receive an email with information for connecting to the web conference.
Hope to see you there!
Until next time, 73 de Dean KB7QDI
