Old Business

Jim, WA2RJP, reported that antenna line for the Hooper Avenue water tower was paid in full.  All that was needed was for a bottom connector to be installed and the antenna system tested by the contractor.  It is uncertain when the repeater will be returned to the site, which will only host the W2DOR 146.91 MHz repeater.  The antenna will be no lower than it was before, although the exact elevation was uncertain.

Work had also been completed on the antenna at the temporary site, and Paul, WB2HHH, noted that it was operating at better than the manufacturer’s specifications.

Chris, K2HVE, discussed planning for Field Day.  We would set up beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, 22 June.  Pete, K3PMC, noted that Girl Scouts had been invited.

New Business

A spaghetti dinner fundraiser has been scheduled for Saturday, 27 July.  Cost would be $15.  Volunteers were solicited to help, and Chris, K2HVE; Pete, K3PMC; and Matt, K3MR offered their services.

President Tom, KD9BVC, noted we already had three candidates for the testing session the following Thursday.  He stressed that this month would be the final one for the current General test question pool and urged members who wanted to take the test to do it this month.

Brian, WA2FAX, reported on upcoming operating events on the coming weekend, including the West Virginia QSO Party and ARRL’s Kids’ Day.

Kurt, KD2RFY, moved that meeting be adjourned, which was seconded by Steve, AA2ST.  The meeting was adjourned at 20:07 EDT.  Total Attendance was 18.
