2014 Annual Meeting Highlights

We held our Annual Meeting at Blue Plate Restaurant. It was the perfect ending to a great year for the Wiregrass Amateur Radio Club.  The food was great and to conversation was both entertaining and inspiring.

Our outgoing Club President, KE4GWW James Nelson, gave a short speech to welcome all of those attending and challenge the incoming leadership to continue the Club’s great successes.
In addition, Callie Benecchi (K1DC’s young bride) updated our Club flag/banner to reflect our new call sign – W4DHN. Thank you Callie!

Merry Christmas to All, and a Happy New Year!

November 2014 Club Meeting

We had a great November Club Meeting, with 14 members present.

WARC would like to congratulate our newly-elected Club Officers for2015:

  • President – N4RNR/Robert Bankston
  • Vice-President – KJ4VDE/Densie Williams
  • Secretary – KK4MMN/Marvetta Childs
  • Treasurer – KK4LST/John Duty

By unanimous vote, WARC has elected to change its Club call sign from WB4ZPI to W4DHN. The WB4ZPI call sign has always been a phonetic mouthful , especially during Field Day. The new call sign, W4DHN, is much simpler and in keeping with the three-letter identifier, DHN, for Dothan. The vanity call sign application will be submitted to the FCC, and members will be notified when the request has been approved.
