Thursday 19 March Meeting to be On-Air!

Since we are not having an in-person meeting this month on the 19th, we have decided to add an additional on-air net on our normal frequency at a 6:30 PM (same time we would normally have our club meeting).  This net will be on the Ensign Peak repeater at 147.16 MHz tone 127.3 Hz.

Turn on your radios and check in!

5.7 Earthquake Near Magna

There was a 5.7 earthquake a little north of Magna this morning.  There have been several aftershocks.  We are asking all club members to check in either here (post a comment on this message) or via e-mail to the club.  Joey has advised that the city is okay, some minor water breaks, but nothing major.  No need for a club activation at this time.

March 19th Meeting Cancelled

Due to the COVID-19 (a.k.a. Corona) virus, it has been decided to suspend in-person club meetings at this time.  We will NOT be meeting on the 19th of March.  We will continue to have our weekly Sunday evening nets.

Best wishes to all and stay safe and healthy.  If you have been exposed to the virus, take appropriate action, including contacting your health care professional(s).  While primarily dangerous to the elderly, young, and those with compromised immune systems or respiratory disorders, the disease is not fun no matter what your health condition and you should avoid it if you can.  Wash your hands regularly with soap and water.

Given the shortage of items such as hand sanitizer, wet wipes, cold medicine, and other related products, you may want to experiment with making your own hand sanitizer.  This can be done quite simply by using a mixture of 2/3 rubbing alcohol with 1/3 aloe vera gel.  Keep it in a sealed container to prevent evaporation.  While helpful when soap and water are not available, hand sanitizer is NOT a substitute for proper hand washing.  Hand sanitizer kills some of the virus, but soap and water washes it away entirely.
