Club Meetings

Club membership meetings are generally held the second Saturday of the odd-numbered months, that is January, March, May, September, and November -- note: there is no July meeting.  Visitors are always welcome and encouraged to attend.  The meetings are held at 10:00 am at various locations around the metro. See the Events list on our home page for the next meeting location.

Many thanks to the Pavek Museum of Broadcasting for hosting our meetings for over 20 years!

The doors open at 10:00 am.  The business meeting starts at 10:15 and ends about 11:00.  There may be an informational presentation of interest to our members after a short break.  The presentation usually ends around 12:00 but how long we stick around and keep talking about it is anybody's guess!

If you're a TwinsLAN member, thinking about joining, or just interested in some informal "ham"-speak, consider stopping in for coffee or breakfast at 8:30 am, prior to the meeting, at a location near the meeting.

Becoming a TwinsLAN Member

The annual TwinsLAN membership dues are $10.00.  To become a TwinsLAN member, send your name, address and your amateur call (if any) plus $10.00 for an annual membership (payable to "TwinsLAN") to:

TwinsLAN Packet Radio Club
8201 32nd Ave N
CrystaL, MN 55427

TwinsLAN dues are low because members are expected to volunteer to work at the annual Tailgate Swapfest in June.  Tailgate Swapfest provides most of the operating capital for TwinsLAN, not member dues.

.E-Mail Lists

TwinsLAN uses the Mailman remailer program to maintain several e-mail lists specifically for club activities and hosts email lists for several other ham organizations around the state. TwinsLAN would be happy to support your amateur radio activities in Minnesota by hosting a low-volume email list for your club or group. We would do the initial list setup and provide a little coaching for your list administrator and after that your administrator would be responsible for maintaining the email list. NOTE: We do NOT recommend our email lists for critical emergency messages and do NOT provide any guarantees regarding availability of the email list or delivery of the email messages. (There are commercial organizations that may provide those guarantees, but not TwinsLAN.) Send an email to the TwinsLAN email address at the bottom of the page for more information about hosting an email list.
