The membership subscriptions for the 2023/24 financial year have been increased by $10 for all categories of membership. These now become:
- Full membership $40
- Concession/Student/Associate $35
- Family $50
The setting of the subscriptions took longer that the elections.
The original motion was that the fees remain the same as last year. After a lot of discussion this motion was put and lost. A second motion that the fees be increased by $10 was put and carried.
(It was noted that there has never been an increase in fees since the club started in 2010)
A light luncheon of warm party pies and sausage rolls were brought out at the end of the meeting and enjoyed by all.
There were some brief presentations on a home brew morse practice set with an Arduino that displayed the keyed code and a talk on the sBitx software defined transceiver.
After the formal meeting a delicious lunch was served but some of us went outside to un-bog VK3GX’s car.
