At the monthly meeting of the Waverley Amateur Radio Society, held on the 17th June Tim VK2ZTM, the Secretary of Amateur Radio NSW, presented a cheque for $600 to our President (John VK2LJ) as part of the recent ARNSW initiative supporting clubs within the State. The club had applied for a grant, to assist with a project to replace the failed data projector and upgrade the Audio-Visual equipment in the club rooms. This equipment is an essential part of club meetings and our Foundation course teaching.
A motion of thanks to ARNSW and to acknowledge its assistance was passed by acclamation.
The club has previously received a significant ARNSW grant to assist with the establishment of the D-Star repeater VK2RBV.
We would encourage all amateurs within VK2 to look at the services and benefits of joining ARNSW as well as the national WIA and, of course, your local club.
Secretary Waverley ARS
