Welcome to ZL2KO

Club General Meeting Net

As you are aware we are now in Level 2. This does give us much more freedom but does not permit us to go back to normal club activities. Up to 10 folk can meet at the club rooms with appropriate physical distancing and caution around hygiene . To this end if you want to meet at the club rooms you may do so on the following conditions:
- No more than 10 should be at the rooms at one time.
- Hand Sanitizer will be placed in the club rooms - please use it as required but remember 20 seconds hand washing in soap is more effective.
- A Covid-19 tracking register will be on the bench. You MUST fill this out if you are in the club rooms - this is a legal requirement.

The next club meeting will be a Zoom meeting but with a difference. Graeme (ZL2GZ) will run Zoom through the projector at the club rooms for those that are not able to use Zoom but wish to join in. There will be a limit of 10 (including Graeme) so please book in the Graeme so we do not exceed the 10 person limit. Again - fill in the tracking register.

Enjoy your first day or relative freedom but remember - we will not be "out of the woods" with this virus until there is a vaccination.

Club Announcement

Due to current COVID-19 lock-down and for all our members well being we have cancelled all club meetings until further notice.

Club Nets will be still going ahead on Thursday Night and Sunday Morning.

The Ham Cram is on hold and we will update you on this as we are due to start training nights in the next couple of months.
