Chairman's Comments - Posted January 15th 2020

Greetings -

With the arrival of 2020, it is only fitting that I present to you a 2020 Vision of my expectations for this year. 

The NUMBER 1 and most important priority will be the completion and activation of the Hospital Net UHF Link at Milaca. This project has taken far too long to complete, and every effort must be taken to get this done - SOON. By SOON, I mean in a matter of no more than a few more days.

Next is the completion of the Welia Hospital Radio Room Project. Contrary to the Hospital Link Project, the Welia Radio Room continues to evolve. The VHF/UHF Operating Station is now finished, and "on air" operations have started. We hope to have the room itself fully equipped by the time our HIPPA Training Meeting takes place in April. Antenna and Tower work awaits the arrival of warmer weather. 

 The other major project on my agenda is the conversion of MORA's mobile camper into an emergency communications unit. It is going to need some work - mainly on the inside - to remodel it into exactly what we want, but with a tight budget for this year we might not be able to do everything we want. We will be relying heavily on our talented members to help with the work, once we decide what to do. We can also help ourselves by salvaging what we can from the club "Paddy Wagon" that is - for all intents and purposes - no longer useful for any other reason.

We are starting the year with a January 23rd VE Exam Session, and a Technician Licensing Class is being planned for sometime between now and the end of March.

So, as you can see, there are goals. We see clearly that these goals are noble ones that can and must be achieved. With an extra bit of effort we can achieve these goals.

Camper & Repeater Link Top 2020 Budget Plans

During MORA's November Board Meeting, the Budget discussion was focused on the reality of a limited treasury, with the need to cut back on expenses wherever possible. However, two main items will be in the budget for the coming year. 

First will be the completion of the Hospital Link Project. Second will be converting the camper acquired in 2019 into a mobile emergency communications unit. 

"We must build up our reserves," Board Chairman KJ9W said. "If anything major happens, we could be in trouble."
