April 2020 Virtual Club Meeting

The April Meeting of the Nixa Amateur Radio Club Will be on the radio... Well mostly... At 6pm Saturday, we will start our meeting on the radio.  Home base will be the 145.270 - Nixa repeater, but we will also link in the SMLRS network as well. We will do an informal net discussing how everyone has been doing during the COVID-10 stay at home orders.  At about 6:30pm or after the net we will move to a Jitsi Meet meeting hosted on a club server to cover club business and presentations.  

Due to the relaxed grooming we have all had during the stay at home order (but really to save bandwidth) we would request participants leave the cameras off most of the time and mute their mics. 

If you are loading on a PC/Mac no downloads or accounts are required, just the meeting room name link that we will be publishing on our groups.io reflector for security reasons. On iphone and android phones, you can download the Jitsi Meet app.  When you click on the meeting room link it will automatically open that link in the Jitsi Meet app.  

Prior to the meeting on Saturday, we will provide a link to on our groups.io mailing list.  Not on groups.io yet? Click the link on the upper left corner of this page https://www.nixahams.net and we'll get you connected. 

March 2020 Meeting Canceled

The Nixa Amateur Radio Club monthly meeting, as well as the monthly VE testing, scheduled for THIS Saturday, March 14, has been canceled. The community room at the fire station is not available until after April 30 due to Covid-19 concerns. The officers will be in discussion and will make a decision on the April meeting.
