October 2016 meeting minutes

The meeting was called to order October 25, 2016 at 7:09 PM Uvalde time.

Attending: Mary KU5Z, Jim AB5JK, Dave WA6YJW and Erik K5WW.

Jim reports that an amateur radio relative of his, Lee W5IG, quite unexpectedly became a silent key. Lee was known by some of his friends as “Inspector Gadget” because of some of the really cool projects he made. One of those projects is the cool transmitter, as seen here on YouTube. Cool!

Jim also reports that he recently had a QSO with Roger K0YY via the AllStar network, through node 27272. That node is linked to the W5IRP repeater in Lufkin, TX, which Roger monitors.

The treasurer’s report shows no changes from last month.

James WW5XX donated some more oldies but goodies to the club to sell on eBay to generate some more and much needed funds. Thanks James!! (I think he justs wants another baseball cap 😉 )

That’s all. More news next month!

The meeting was adjourned at 7:39 local time, same place.
