November 2018 meeting

Since last month’s meeting was such a huge success we may have to find a larger building. If that’s the case we’ll announce it here.

For now: meeting in the education conference room, at 7 PM on the 27th.

October 23, 2018 meeting minutes

Attending: Jim AB5JK and Erik K5WW. Excused: Dave WA6YJW.

No disorderly conduct this time; so the meeting was started as soon as everyone was seated. And took of their rain coats. Not necessarily in that order.

Biggest news: our EchoLink and AllStar nodes will be offline for a few days.  The “old” hardware was disconnected a few days ago. Jim is implementing the latest and greatest soft- and hardware; but he is making good progress so the wait for everything to go live again will be minimal.

Treasurer report: $1,200.05, after the purchase of the new vertical antenna for our repeater. That antenna has been received; and keeps screaming to get installed.

Smaller accessories and coax connectors for the new installation and general maintenance of the other antennas were ordered and received and relocated to K5WW’s trunk. They too keep screaming to be installed; but KU5Z got tired of having to put in ear plugs at night so those items can now scream away – in the trunk.

In other words: we’re as good as ready. All we need is a day of mild weather, and our lift (not Lyft) driver to travel down this way, some time in November. Which is just around the corner, so we’re excited!

Other news: Dave WA6YJW is about to move to Panama. We tried to talk him out of it; but no-go. The beaches must be so nice! 🙂

Meeting adjourned at 8:03 PM GPS time. See ya next time!
