John Hager reported that the picnic shelter at Paintsville Lake was reserved and now, since it was after Jan.1, he would reserve the campsite.
The Ham of the Quarter certificate was presented to Frank Wells. A motion was made and passed to let Frank’s status as Ham of the Quarter continue for the first quarter of 2019, since his information was not put on the website until near the end of the fourth quarter of 2018. This was due to unforseen circumstances for our web master.
Frank also reported that he had 612 checkins for the Friendship net in December. This was an all time high for the net.
At least 5 of our members reported that they would like to attend a Weather Spotter class. Since our attendance was down for this meeting, we expect that more will want to attend. We hope to get a class scheduled for our February meeting.
Frank also announced a new net that will start on DMR, Sunday, January 6 at 8:00 pm EST. It will meet every Sunday at the same time on the Kentucky State talkgroup of 3121.
It was also decided that we will try to have a Weather Spotter class at our March meeting, if it can be arranged with Jackson weather service and if we can get enough people to commit to attend.
