 Good Morning!

The Mo-Kan Council of Amateur Radio Organizations was held virtually on Saturday, May 9th. The Minutes for that meeting can be viewed at:

Thank You to all who attended!

After the meeting, KS0JD – Jeff Darby, President of the Santa Fe Trail Amateur Radio Club emailed an idea to me, and I think it’s a good idea! I’m looking at this as an extension of the Mo-Kan Elmer Program, which has been successful at Hamfests.

If I understand Jeff’s idea correctly, we might set up a contact point for Hams looking for an Elmer or assistance for whatever topic. (I would propose I could set up an email address, such as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. which would go to a group of Mo-Kan Elmer Coordinators.) Once our coordinators receive the request for information, one or more of several actions might take place;


Respond directly to the Hams Request for Assistance,
Introduce the Ham to one of our Elmers who is a Subject Matter Expert on the topic requested,
Add the topic which could be included in a monthly, virtual discussion hosted by the Mo-Kan Council.

As this is just an idea at this point, we can change or tweak this idea until we can come up with a plan.

So, what do you think? What can we do with this idea? Please respond with your suggestions and ideas to add to this discussion!
