Perhaps the two meter nets are not the most effective way ofcommunicating with the club members in general?  

How many members does the club have?
How many club members have e-mail?
How many club members regularly attend the nets?
If this club is anything like the other clubs of which I've beena member over the years, I'd be willing to bet that more peopleread e-mail than attend nets.
I don't remember seeing any e-mail about a newspaper's requestfor someone to interview about the annual ARRL Field Day event.
Thinking that perhaps I might be experiencing e-mail problems,I checked the club e-mail list archive, but cannot find anythingin either April, May, or June regarding this matter.
As for the interview, I'd be more than happy to speak with thegentleman, even though I really feel that the "voice of the club"(as well as the "face of the club") should be the President...or Public Information Officer, whoever they might be at the time.

  I had mentioned it on a couple of 2 m nets last week and I did send it out by email to all of our members and apparently nobody has volunteered to be interviewed. 

I was hoping some of the girls would be interested. 

I will send this email to our club members again hoping someone will respond to you.

 Subject: Field Day info, interview      Hi Herman,     I met you earlier this month at the AARA meeting. I mentioned to the members I’d like to write a story for the newspaper about the W5DDL Field Day activities.     I gave my business card to a ham handling publicity for FD. I can’t remember his name or call sign, but he said he’d get in touch with me. I have not heard  from him. Can you help me contact him?      I already know a lot about Field Day, so I have no problem writing about it. But to make the story more personable, I’d like to feature an interesting, local ham who wouldn’t mind talking about the hobby.     I’m open to any suggestions. But I need to schedule an interview and photo shoot soon with that person to make sure the story runs before the event.        At the meeting, I saw several female hams, which was rare when I was active. We also have a large female readership, so perhaps that’s a possibility.      Thanks for your help. 73 de N5BMD.    Herman Fuselier Music and entertainment writer The Daily Advertiser, Times of Acadiana  1100 Bertrand Drive Lafayette, LA 70506 hfuselier at theadvertiser.com Work - 337-289-6318 Cell - 337-889-2016 Like us: facebook.com/dailyadvertiser Follow us: @theadvertiser
