Minutes of AUGUST 28, 2021, DTARC Meeting


The August monthly meeting was opened by President Dwayne Allen at 12:23 PM.     

Treasurer’s Report was given by Treasurer, Jerry Boone.  He gave the balance in the club bank account and the current number of club members (19 members with 12 present) at the meeting. 

Dwyane then asked the members to accept the minutes from the last meeting of July 2021, which are posted on the website.  Katie moved to accept the minutes from last month and Chris seconded the motion.  All members voted in favor with none opposed. 


Old business: 

Dwayne will schedule licensing classes, probably starting September 11, 2021.

Dwayne and Jerry spoke about their recent phone conversation with Diane Zimmerman of the Laurel VEC to discuss the possibility of doing our VE testing with Laurel.  They explained the Laurel policies of no-fee VE tests and its ability to provide quick turnaround on callsigns, but the club would have to cover any testing expenses.  After a lengthy discussion, a motion was made and seconded to affiliate with Laurel VEC.  All voted in favor with none opposed.  Dwayne will be our VE team leader, and a deputy team leader remains to be named.  Once that occurs, we will contact Diane Zimmerman again to begin the process of joining the Laurel VEC.


New Business: 

Dwayne informed us about the ARRL VHF contest that will start Saturday, September 11th at noon and run till Sunday, September 12th at 9:00 a.m.  DTARC will be participating in the event at the Sunny Divide meeting hall and all members and guests are invited to attend. 


Meeting was adjourned at 1:09 p.m.
