Meeting opened 7:30 by K1TA
Sept minutes approved.

Department Reports:

Finance: Checking and savings both good.

Communications: No communications of note.

Board: No Board actions.

Technical Committee: No problems noted.

With Curt’s imminent move to North Carolina, we need to find a chair for the Technical Committee. Please contact any of the Board members if you are interested. You don’t have to be the world’s greatest techie, you just need to be someone who will work with the club to find the right person to fix things when they need fixing.

Because of rain getting through the roof of the Comm Center, the router we were using for open internet access was destroyed, which took away both our wireless internet at the Comm Center and also our Echolink access. We have offered the Fire Dept a replacement router, but so far they have not installed it.

Public Service:

  • The Parkinson Walk took place on Oct 5. It’s a short operation where we cover the route of a 1-½ mile walk by Parkinson Disease victims who are raising money for research. Although a short walk by our standards, it’s a very very long walk for people suffering from Parkinson’s. We had eight people show up and the event organizers were extremely grateful.

The CT Section Simulated Emergency Test will take place on Saturday Oct 26. If you subscribe to the CT ARES reflector you should be receiving information about it. If you are not receiving the information, please contact AI1V (ai1v@arrl.net).

Education Committee: Tech Class started 9/26. 20 people signed up for the class with another 6 on the waiting list. About half of them are CERT, the other half are just people interested in getting their licenses. The second class on 10/3 had 18 people, which is actually better than expected.

VE session last Saturday. 3 new Tech licenses.

Holiday Party: The annual holiday party will be held on Wed Dec 11 at 6pm at the Laurel Athletic Club in Norwalk. Pricing details to follow.

The meeting was closed at 7:48 pm.
