Time to Renew your HOTARC Membership!
For current HOTARC members, it's time to renew your Club membership! According to our bylaws, annual dues are due on January 1 of each year (we'll accept renewals up to March 31). As approved by the Directors this year, dues for Full Members remain at $30/yr; for Associate Members only $15/yr; and no charge for Family Members (along with a paying Member). (See the Club By-laws for more details.)
You can now use PayPal to quickly, easily, and securely pay your HOTARC Member dues right now!
Also, please help us keep our records up to date (email, phone numbers, family members, etc.) by completing the short Membership Renewal Form (html version or pdf version), along with your dues payment. You can mail, or email, or just bring it to the next meeting. Thanks for your continued support of HOTARC! We are glad to be YOUR Club!
Ham Coffee Breakscheduled) we're meeting for a cup of coffee and a chat (and brunch, anyone?) at Griff's Grill at the intersection of China Springs Highway and Wortham Bend Rd (beside Chevron gas station). The topic list is wide open! We're just getting together to "shoot the bull," and would love for as many Club members, other hams, and guests to participate as are interested.
If we expect large numbers, we'll call ahead for a table, so feel free to drop a quick email to Ralph W5RWR if you're planning to be there. That said, don't hesitate to come because you didn't send an email—if you find yourself able, we'd love to see you!
HOTARC Members Meeting
HOTARC will hold its next Meeting of Members on Thursday, January 24 at 7:00 pm. The Club meets on the fourth Thursday each month at the W5NCD Workshop near the southern end of Chapel Road in far south Waco (12272 Chapel Rd, Lorena, TX). Our meetings include a few minutes of regular business, planning for upcoming special events, entertaining radio-related discussions, usually an interesting program or presentation—and, of course, plenty of friendly fellowship with other area hams!
Otherwise, do you have a question about our Club, about our amateur radio hobby, or about using your ham radio equipment? Look over our web site, and/or attend the next Club meeting—a great opportunity to get answers, or be pointed in the right direction to find an answer. Read the current HOTLINE (issued the weekend prior to the meeting) for more details about this month's meeting. Family members and visitors—especially those interested in becoming hams or joining the Club—are always very welcome!
