This is just a reminder that all members are invited to attend Board of Directors meetings. Meetings are not secret or private. All the board members are club members first, and we have just been elected to make sure all the club business gets done. If you have something you would like to bring up with the board, and idea or even a complaint, you are free to contact a board member to have it put on the agenda and present it in person. Board meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm at the Red Cross (upstairs). Again, everyone is welcome, any time. Post expires at 12:53pm on Monday November 30th, 2015 but will still be available in the archives.
Sessions will take place at the Mental Health facility off of San Antonio Road on the second Saturday of odd numbered months. Please check the club calendar for upcoming dates and times. More information is also available here. The ARRL VE charges $15.00 for administering each test. You pay the fee for, and can take the test for as many license levels as you want in the time allotted. If you fail one test, you can arrange to take a different version of the same test for an additional $15, up to four of them !!! Ventura County does VE sessions during evenly numbered months on the second Saturdays or Sundays. Additional VE Sessions may take place at the end of any classes, such as for the Technician, General or Extra level licenses.

Every month on the evening of the third Wednesday, Dave, K6HWN, runs a Trivia net on the 146.790 repeater with a link to 224.080. This is in place of the regular Club net.
