The first post-pandemic in-person general membership meeting will be held February 15, 2023 at 6:30 PM in the meeting room at the REI store, 5929 E. Northwest Highway, Dallas.
The club Board of Directors has developed a comprehensive list of planned activities and objectives for the upcoming year. Review and discussion of these plans will be the major focus of the evening. Additionally, we will be voting on club membership applications for two new members.
Going forward, HamClubOnline will be the primary membership database and event scheduling system for all WRLARC activities. Consequently, all members listed in groups.io need to log into HamClubOnline and apply for membership in the club. This is the only way to assure that everyone gets announcements and updates for future activities and credit for participating in our many planned activities
Update: here’s a photo taken before prior to our meeting at REI. From left to right: club President Dave K5YR. Gary AF5XZ and one of our newest hams, Alberto KI5WZZ.
As was announced on the Simplex Net this evening, our club has implemented use of HamClubOnline as a way to manage our club roster, club activities, and participation in club events. This is the same system used by many North Texas ham radio clubs including the Dallas ARC and Richardson Wireless Klub.
This change was driven in large part by our intention to, at some point in the future, begin collecting dues in order to support operations such as Field Day and perhaps a club owned EchoLink equipment setup.
All club members are asked to go into HamClubOnline.com and apply for membership with the WA5WRL club. If you are already loaded into the HamClubOnline system, you can simply sign in with your existing email address and password and then ask for membership with WA5WRL. You won’t need to load all your data again.
If you are not already a user of HamClubOnline, registration is quite simple and takes only a few minutes. You can then apply for membership with WA5WRL.
If you have any problems getting into HamClubOnline please let Dave, K5YR know so he can resolve the issue.
