Minutes (Template)


  • Treasurer
    • Significant purchase - £207.50 SDR (Air Spy)- large amount from SUSU funding
    • Spent £200 more this year (Significant chunk from Morse sounder project, and other projects)
    • A lot of membership money goes to RSGB (roughly quarter)
    • Option 1 - get more money in by increasing student membership to £15 / staff and alumni £25? Or selling old equipment - better than storing. Should we increase finding for first years?
      • We could charge an exam course fee, but this could be controversial?
        • Vote:
          • £15 for student members - 12 in favour, no objections
          • £25 for non-student members - 12 in favour, no objections
          • New members £10 - 10 in favour, no objections
    • Option 2 - get more funding from SUSU (SOWN Zepler Project) - matched funding
    • This year roughly matched for money out and money in
    • Option 3 - Sponsorship? Will this be viable?
    • Option 4 - Purchase Baofeng Radios in bulk and sell to new members who have just been licensed - need to consider import tax to see if this is a viable option.
  • Exams
    • No exams this year with Itchen Valley ARC
    • High pass rates, good year for exams
    • We need to better organise invigilators/instructors next time
      • Could have more full-licencees become instructors/ Registered Assessors
    • Perhaps practical exams could be completed at an earlier date to avoid stress
    • Consider organising exams/ workshop sessions for weekends
    • It is good to see members progress through the licensing system
  • President
    • ???
  • Licensing officer
    • Ensure correct paperwork is readily available
  • Secretary
    • My attendance year could have been better.
