New Business :
PL for Repeaters: All repeaters now carry the desired PL of 131.8
Coudersport : The 300 machine is back online. Lightning took out the controller after that. It was sent to Florida at a cost of $39 for repairs. Tech said power supply and power amplifier was bad and was replaced at Wayne's expense. Jim has old power supply to perhaps repair. Now all fine tuned and more powerful than before as it can reach from Coudersport to the Deer Park now. On another occassion, it was heard all the way to Larry's Sports Center. Went northwest almost to Shinglehouse.
Club Trustee: Has been changed from Adriaan to Jim. New License came through March 23, 2010 and is on display at the club address.
Coordination: Dues for 2011 were sent already to both repeater committees.
Shared Site on Tower Hill: It seems that Dave's repeater is down and Corey has nothing there. Wayne and Jim will be going up with an amp probe to see why the draw is high in Mansfield.
Tri-County Rural Electric Coop Bill: Must still ask Bill if he has spoken to them about receiving a reduced rate because of our connection with emergency management. Wayne will meet with Corey to see if he has a written agreement with Tri-County.
Checking Account: Check book made available for members to see. Read expenses for the year including electric of $562.67 and coordination dues of $55. Due income is expected to be $320. Dave's half of the electric is $285. We should make it another 12 months.
Membership Dues: Dues were collected at $20 per member, and membership certificates and cards were handed out. Members not present will be notified about dues via email or phone. Their certificates and cards will be mailed following payment.
Officers: For 2010/11. Sylvia made motion to keep the officers the same. It was seconded by Jim. Vote unanimous. Roger Fisher, President; Wayne Williams, Vice-President; Audrey Graham, Sec/Treas.
Next Meeting: Tentatively scheduled at Arbeider's for June or July so we can do it outside. We'll check around for a weekend as we get closer.
Time: 4:45 p.m.
