Meeting to Order
Time: 4:15 p.m.
Jim & Reita
Wayne & Sylvia
Club Trustee: Copies of original trustee license have been made for all repeater locations. They will be delivered to all repeater locations soon. (No really, they will)
New Business :
Coordination: Dues to WPRC and ARCC need to be paid for 2014/2015 and will be soon
Coverage Area: It was suggested that we add a map to our website showing the coverage area of our repeaters.
Tower Hill (Tioga): Since our electric bill remains at high kWh usage, a committe (Wayne, Jim, Therese) has been formed to visit this site and see if anyone else is drawing on our electric.
Checking Account: Currently 12 members is due income is $240. A donation had been made of $200 toward our electric bill last month in order to keep our checkbook in tact. It was decided to allow membership dues to remain unchanged. At our rate of electrical consumption on Tower Hill, we will be in need of more donations by April or May of next year to keep the 625 repeater online. In the past another repeater was onsite and shared half the electric. That operater is no longer in the area.
Membership Dues: Dues were collected at $20 per member. Members not present will be notified about dues via email or phone. Membership Cards will be made available.
New Membership: We welcome a new member to our club: J Robert Witmer - W3RW.
Officers: For 2013. Motion made to keep the officers the same. Vote unanimous: Roger Fisher, President; Wayne Williams, Vice-President; Audrey Graham, Sec/Treas.
Next Meeting: Tentatively scheduled for a BBQ in August at Cowanesque Lake. We'll check around for a weekend as we get closer.
Time: 5:15 p.m.
