2017 KLARC AGM.
Hi All. This years AGM went quite smoothly although there was a very poor turn out, the re elected Chairman Olly M0OLY thanks all those that made the effort on a very cold and damp evening.
The committee members from last year all agreed to stay for another year in a unanimous vote by all present.
Many subjects where discussed on the night and it was suggested that we should have a face book page which will be open to all. It was also decided that a log should be set up so that any equipment loaned out would be traceable in future and Geoff M0KGH offered to take responsibility for that.
One of the other subjects was the special events like castles on the air lighthouse weekend etc. Mike Jennings M0XXM offered to look into taking on the NOV for GB2HL sadly we were unable to partake in 2016 do to a mix up with the NOV application. So as this does not happen again this year contact will need to be made with Mick Smith M0MSX who has hosted this event for many years for which we are most grateful, I’m quite sure had it not been for his health failing him he would be sat up on that cliff top, I’m sure everyone at the club wishes Mick all the best for the future. 
Ben Tompkins M6BKK offered to take on a more active roll as regards special events so will help out Eric Allison G4JNQ who currently holds the NOV for Castles on the air.
It was also decided that events that would normally be posted on the news page like silent keys auctions etc. should be blanket emailed to all members as well.
Enquires are ongoing as regards to internet access at the club so that the new Yaesu Fusion repeater at the club can be fully activated.
Olly M0OLY also informed us that he is currently in talks over future Guest Speakers coming to the club and said he would inform everyone once arrangements are confirmed.
Also discussed where the membership fees this year and it was decided that there should also be a set family or couples fee and £22 was put forward as a fair price to which all where in agreement.
Also present on the night was Guide Leader Mary and she informed us that the funds needed to replace the old windows at the club had been raised, and that new double glazed units would be fitted this year.
Mary also informed us that they would be having a fund raising event and asked if anyone with bric a brac Or unwanted items they would like to donate she would be most grateful, and as the internet is going to be jointly shared with us she is more than happy to help with installation costs.
Sorry if I have missed anything or anyone you know how to contact me and I shall do a general update on Sunday. 
                   73 from Steve on behalf of KLARC.

Ofcom has today published guidance to help amateur radio licensees to understand and comply with the terms and conditions of the UK amateur radio licence. This guidance should therefore, be read in conjunction with the licence.
We are aware from member enquires that there are areas of operating practice where further advice may be appreciated, and we are thus proposing to publish some “Best Practice” notes later in the year.
