As mentioned in the Official Broadcast on Sunday, I have noticed that the subscription invoice this year which was sent out with your August Break In, was actually printed on the back of the Hamad Request form, therefore you may have missed it.
This may be the reason for a very slow response for payment of your 2016 subs, therefore a reminder notice will be sent out to you in early October.
Rebate Amount/Date due
The rebate period applies until the end of November, so you still have plenty of time to take advantage of the reduced subscription rate. A reminder however that subs are $99 less $10, making payment required of $89, not $88.
Subscription payment by Credit Card
Finally on the topic of subscriptions, due to an increase in credit card fraud, I can no longer accept phone calls advising of your credit card details. These need to be sent to me in writing and either posted or scanned and e-mailed to me.
Public Liability Insurance for Branch Club Rooms
It appears the public liability insurance required for some branch club rooms has now started to make an impact as local Councils are making this a requirement of tenancy agreements.
I have been approached by a branch requesting this be reconsidered by NZART as the premium they have been quoted is considerably higher than was negotiated by NZART. However this was a very time consuming exercise and in the end not cost effective to undertake as only 5 branches wished to proceed. I urge you all to review this clause in your tenancy agreement with your Clubs building owners in case your branch is affected.
Wellington VHF Group will be relocating their DMR repeater licensed at Hawkins Hill to Wright Hill. This is an existing license & just needs modification to change the location, no other parameters will be changed. (External ARE038).
Auckland VHF Group have applied for three 20 MHz wide channels transmitting in the 9 cm band for a mesh network at Nihotupu Topo50 map BA31 401.84 114.69, receiving in the 23 cm band. This is in progress. They have also applied for a DTV license for DTV25 (502-510 MHz) which is not an amateur band. This on hold meantime awaiting final tests in the Wellington area.
