When the Wilson Radio League was founded in December 2014, our website had an “Updates” page where our posts went. We didn’t really know what it would be used for, as we were very much still hammering out details of both our goals and website. I believe that the creation of this page was brought on by our then Vice President, Jacob (W4JZE).
Fast forward several months to June of 2015. Our few but dedicated members were working hard to grow the organization, trying out new ideas and researching ways to make a modern and appealing radio club. One of the steps taken was to locate a more public meeting place at Cumberland University. Our President, Nicholas (KK4UTQ) was responsible for this feat.
At roughly the same time that our meeting space was approved, I stumbled upon this article by K9JY. Weather you agree with this article or not, it gave our then Net Manager and Webmaster, Noah (N4OAH) an inspiration. We needed a way to easily display the fact that we are an active and diverse group, taking full advantage of the technology at our disposal. The “Updates” tab was changed to read “WCRL News” and it’s first post was made on June 9, announcing our new meeting location.
After Field Day 2015 Noah (N4OAH) approached Jeremy (N7VXX) about becoming our Public Information Officer. Jeremy’s first post was about Field Day (linked to above).
Stay tuned for a follow up post about the WCRL News on June 9th!!!
