The meeting was called to order at 7:19 PM. Attending: Jason KS5TX, Jim AB5JK, David W5DUH and Erik K5WW.
Minutes of the Janaury meeting were read (but not out loud) and approved.
New business: the treasurer reports no changes since last month.
There are no changes in the level of radio interference in the shack; the representative from AEP has yet to show up.
David is picking up the repeater’s duplexers; which still needed to be retuned after the frequency change. That leaves the repeater offline; but the duplexers are expected to be back early March.
The biggest, and disastrous news: our fantastic President, Mr. Jason Shell KS5TX, has announced his resignation as President. He has accepted a new job in Fort Hood; and stated it would be impossible to perform his “duties” given the distance. Talk about a lame excuse! 😉
But: we all wish him the very best! And we all have a feeling he won’t be gone for long. Because, after all, he is the best. And he made sure to rub our noses in it, showing off a great looking certificate he received for placing 3rd in the 2015 edition of the TARA RTTY Melee contest, in the Single Operator Low Power section!
Jim AB5JK will take over the duties of President, at the very least until new elections can be held.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:35 PM, after which we all sobbed, witnessing Jason ride off in the sunset on his steed called Ford. Come back soon! 🙂
