Jan Meeting       January-6-2012
B-e-a-r-s Meeting January 6, 2012 7:00 p.m. Those in attendance at the January meeting of the BEARS amateur radio club were: Keven, Jocelyn, Eldon, Jan, Rick, Joe, LeAnn, Gary, Gaylen, Eileen, Delar, Alan, and Bill. Keven talked about a few possible word changes in the Bylaws to vote on in February. 2012 stickers were given to those who had paid their dues. Gaylen passed out resource material or ARES training. He talked about as ham radio operators we should be involved and be a part of the community. Being certified in Ares would give us the opportunity to serve in case of emergencies. Alan talked about RACES, the government emergency program. It is closely linked with ARES but they are separate. RACES is more strict than ARES. In an emergency RACES members would be called up and deployed and given a specific assignment. It is a very serious responsibility. As a member of RACES it is imperative for you to be prepared to deploy wherever. He also showed his deployment or Go kit. The spotlight on radio was on the Wouxum Model 6 which cost about $179.00 and several club members have one and are well pleased with it. It has narrow band capabilities. In 2013 narrow band will be required for emergencies. Eldon talked about the history of the M Hill repeater and showed his ham walking stick which he could separate and turn into two types of antennas, a beam antenna and a J pole.
