Meeting called to order at 7:34 pm. Fifteen members in attendance.
Motion to accept meeting minutes from last meeting was made by Curt (W1FSM), seconded by Jim KC1FB.
Treasurer’s report: we didn’t spend anything, lots of club members renewed, and we made $600 in equipment sales.
Paul N1II’s presentation on kit building in ham radio includes lots of really good tips, reviews, and notes on small kits to be used in ham radio. Check it out if you can! Maybe he’ll even post some pictures of his kits or reviews he’s written for QST.
Tech committee report: No real changes since last month’s meeting. Equipment is inside and all is well.
Education committee: We have been teaching a tech class to approximately 20 students, and the class is halfway through. We are hoping to have some pass the test and hopefully will get some new members out of it.
Bylaws committee: The Bylaws Committee has been reviewing bylaws to clean them up, but no progress to report so far.
Special events committee: VE test coming up soon, we also ordered general and extra tests as well in case some members want to level up their licensing. Westport Makers Faire is coming up on April 22nd if anyone wants to come and table! MS Ride on June 11th has been changed. All volunteers now have to get a background check. We realize this might scare some people off, so we totally understand if you don’t want to volunteer. But we may have to back out if we don’t have enough people to volunteer. Hopefully we’ll still get enough volunteers to do it, though!
Field Day committee: Sam is drafting up an email to send out, and would like to have enough people committed to be able to run 3A. We can bring out the tower and have a really good chance at scoring well in the contest. Plus it’s way more fun. Sam will check in with Hugo to reserve Vets Park, and we need the insurance waiver. We’ll discuss food and beverage budget at the next meeting.
Meeting adjourned at 8:33 pm.
