Officer Reports

President Phil Gates (N5ZKF)

  • That I forgot to mention the North American QSO party this last weekend and that it netted me over 70 contacts in dozens of states and some Canadian provinces so, there’s definitely some propagation to be enjoyed.
  • International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend – ILLW
    Normally held on the 3rd full weekend in August
    This year: 00.01 UTC 22nd August to 2400 UTC 23rd August 2020 (48 hours)
  • An active club deserves a recognizable brand and logo.
    • There was a logo in the ‘90s that fell out of use.

  • Take a look at the minutes from last Saturday’s club meeting to catch-up on the announcements from then.

Vice-President Rick Pfeil (KI5DUJ)

  • Keep comments coming in on presentations when we start meeting face to face. We have had some great ideas and I’d love to see more ideas.
  • Keep collecting door prizes for our next get together.

Secretary Trent Owens (AG1TX)

  • Minutes from Saturday’s meeting have been emailed out and posted to the website.
  • If anyone is interested in controlling a net, please let me know! I can set you up to run the net similarly to how David is tonight where I do all the back end data entry and all you need to do is concentrate on the script and the flow of the net.

Treasurer Sly Kapchinski (N5GQB)

  • Nothing has changed since Saturday’s meeting. For a detailed treasurer’s report, please refer to the minutes from the meeting.
  • You can renew or join the club at any time!
