Minutes of last meeting approved as posted.
Finance: Spent over $1000 on Field Day including $500 for food, $200 for new tires for the trailer, $100+ for a new barbecue grill. Also tables, tents, and miscellaneous supplies.
Technical: N1PLH feels DMR receiver is weaker than it was a few months ago. Testing so far has not anything wrong with it. K1TA agrees with N1PLH, thinks it’s dropping out a little closer Norwalk than used to, but no specifics. No other problems. Please report problems to W1FSM, N1LLL, or N1PLH.
As previously noted, we are planning to put up an end fed multiband antenna from the tower to a tree located on the property for lower frequencies.
Education: Expect to have a General license exam in the fall.
