With a new slate of Officers at the helm, we held our January Club Meeting at the American Red Cross. It was a very productive meeting:
- Approved 2015 Budget, as presented by the Board of Directors
- Approved Club Station Operating Procedures (click to view)
- Discussed the 2015 planned activities and possible classes/presentations
After the formal portion of the Club Meeting, Ed, KJ4LTA, gave a tour of the Club Station and a short, but informative, class on startup and shutdown procedures.
In addition, Tom, WD0HBR, brought in a beautiful, old crystal receiver to share with us. Thanks, Tom.

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.
