Jeff had sent out a wake up a while ago. Now we need to start acting.
Need to definitely have a test and tune day. We have all new antennas to us, and FD is not the time to guess. The trailer is at AA1YW’s and the other 40 meter beam is at W1MOR’s.
I Sent an e-mail to MTARA about selling us a AB577. If not then we need to borrow one. Frandy? Steve (N1SR)?,MTARA?
We need to start getting operators, band captains, and set up crew organized.
The park is secured. Not sure on the usage of the new band shell or power. There is a nice pavilion there but not sure about the usage of that either. I will talk to Chris about these in the next month.
Should there be a FD committee or should it be the board? There should be its own committee
Jeff NT1K mentioned about the club building another antenna. This time it would be a Stub J Pole AKA, OSJ pole. For a fee of $35 he would supply the materials for you to build.
Next BOD meetings:
Both at the IHOP in West Springfield
