Amateurs Find Ways to Meet Without Being Able to Gather - (Posted: 04/03/2020)
Last night the Gloucester County Amateur Radio Club held its first General Membership “On-The-Air” Meeting on our 147.180 MHz repeater. Our VP Tony Starr WA2FZB was net control. We had 36 check-ins, which is the average attendance at our in-person meetings. People also checked-in using our EchoLink W2MMD-R server and also on 10M at 28.475 MHz. We handled the normal meeting business and lasted 45 minutes. Not bad for the first time. A good time was had by all.
