November2013

Meeting opened at 7:13pm by N2VU

Attendance: 18

No Presenter – so we will wing it...

Treasurer report: $227.40

Dues discussion: Question about our dues policy. Short discussion. Motion by Jamie, seconded by Tony that if a person joins before the annual club officers election then pay again in January – join at election or after and you get the next year included. Passed unanimously

Repeater discussion: Probably would be a good idea to replace the 2m antenna and feedline as both are 25 yrs old or so.

Fund-­‐raising discussion (see Repeater discussion, above): Find out about how to properly handle donations. A 50-­‐50 raffle was suggested. Probably need to be a 503-­‐c non-­‐profit to legally hold a raffle like that. This issue will be researched.

Tech Net discussion: The idea of a Tech Net was suggested – Maybe on a Wednesday night. Already plenty of tech discussion on Prospect almost every afternoon. Wednesday – 7:00pm eastern time – starting Wed 12/4 John N2DVD will be net control

Appointments: David Gealt (KD2BVA) has been appointed Assistant District Emergency Coordinator and Shawn Perry (KD2DJU) has been appointed Skywarn Assistant Emergency Coordinator.

Announcements: Brian LaFlure is offering a course on See Something Say Something. Several people interested. Adam (KC2TLS) has found a USB-­‐Serial that works with all ham radio programming software. He will bring the details next time.

Possible future meeting programs: Maybe John B. on antenna observations for December. Maybe Jim McKnight on repeaters for January. Donald will find out when we might be able to reschedule John Fritze’s presentation.

General round-­‐robin discussion.
