K5ACL has a fantastic idea. Use Slack Messenger for your radio club’s business outside of meetings and nets.
I think a lot of amateur radio conservative types might not gel with the idea of using online chat for ham radio stuff (why not use a radio?!?) but it is the 21st century, and basically everyone has a smartphone on them always – not a radio.
Slack has been a super efficient way to chat and message surrounding a topic, and it can be a very effective and immediate way to get work done.
And it’s free.
Also shoutout to K5ACL’s Blog – really well written and informative stuff there. Follow his blog at https://k5acl.net/
edit:not everyone has a smartphone, but basically everyone does, and if not a phone, a computer will work too.
