There is a weekly on the air net to keep members informed, to exchange ideas and resolve issues. This net meets on non-holiday Sunday evenings immediately following the RACES net which starts at 6:30 pm.
There is also a summer field day to allow the hams to practice their communicating skills for handling emergencies. The first Saturday in December brings the annual "face to face" meeting where the members get together to elect the new Board of Directors and to attend to current business and to socialize. The Board itself meets bi-monthly throughout the year and members are encouraged to attend these bi-monthly meetings. Comments may be brought to the Board anytime.
This club is active and growing and the members would be pleased to have you join our group. There are envelopes here to facilitate enrollment. Simply fill out the information on the envelope, (phone number is optional) enclose a check made out to “Tec-Ni-Chat” and place it in the appropriate box in the Derby Radio Shack.
You do not have to be a member to use the repeaters but if you use the repeaters regularly, you should join Tec-Ni-Chat to help support them. Additionally, members get the added privilege of having auto-patch and if desired, auto-dial capabilities. For those interested in becoming amateur radio operators, Mark or Sean at Radio Shack will be happy to get you started, or contact any club officer here
