    Local AM/FM broadcast station

    Handling Net control under pressure
    Treasure hunting / map skills
    list of all previous classes
    re-organize website / library
    Ride-Along wiht Fire Brigade oField trip to County Dispatch
    Digital communication
    Winlink on HT

    A couple of other ideas that came up since that list was transcribed:

    Have PVC j-pole antennas available for new hams / members Craig, WA6YJR
    Add Welcoming new HAMs to the agenda after licensing class. Eva, KN6CZD
    Explain advantage for joining the club as well as ARES. Eva, KN6CZD

    David, KM6DOV

    One thing came to mind. Can we get a Slack instance for the club? Useful for casual chat and collaboration when email is too slow. Also a place to dump links.

    Having used Slack in several contexts, I’ve found it useful for quick collaborations, but it tends to lose context quickly. Anything that needs persistence should be on this message board.
