201Re: [AmateurRadioLeadership] Ideas for Club Programs..
- Jan 7, 2014By the way the Pasadena Radio Club owns it's own digital projector. Bought cheap at the local TRW ham swap about 7 years ago - still working fine. It only has VGA (15 pin) and composite inputs but gets the job done. It comes to every meeting - even if the speaker is bringing their own.I believe having a club owned projector is KEY these days. New at office supply type store or Fry's Electronics for $400 to $500 when on "sale".Meetings without "eye candy" or graphics or displays are deadly boring - and could spell the end of a club - if it becomes a trend.And I like to run various Field Day video, mine, or off of Youtube for about 20 minutes projected on the screen as people come into the meeting room - just to have more "eye candy" going as the crowd forms. Kind of fun. And a test for the projector.73Bruce N1BNPasadena Radio Club - W6KA

One item that I am very concerned about is to have a solid program for
each meeting. I have a few lined up, but I am looking for more ideas.
What else have others clubs put forth for programs? I am also looking at
having a set of videos as a backup if we can't get a live body, or they
had to cancel. i have quite a few Dxpedition videos, and Youtube has a
bunch, but are there any other videos out there worth showing to the club?
