Minutes for LSARC meeting of March 18, 2017

 

Meeting was called to order by Rudy, KE5MUE, president at 4:07 pm at the First Christian Church, 763 Passion Play Road, Eureka Springs, AR.

Minutes from previous meeting were accepted as read by members with email. Motion to accept – John Wall, 2nd Fred Willman, “I”s unanimous.

Treasurer’s report. Beginning balance  $755. and ending balance  $844.32.

Old business:
1. Parking lot date drawing will be next month so we do not have a date yet.

2. Jim McCarthy, KC0GDV, has sent email to hams who have information on controllers. The Shell Knob club members thought there was no regulation any more for being able to shut off repeater within a particular time.  Joe Lowenthal, WA4OVO, said there still is a regulation for 3 minutes

3. Terry Dean, N6WI, said if he can do away with his current controller because his Micro-Node RTCM can control his repeater he would donate his ICS Linker IIa controller to the club.

4. Our battery backup will keep our repeater running for several days. We still do not have a trickle charger or isolator.

5. John Wall, KA3MEN, wanted to know how many signs we have for the parking lot duty.  3.

6. Other items included, we still do not have a qualified climber to raise the 440 antenna, we do have 150 feet of unused hardline to use on the 440 antenna, and Terry reported that we now have our 2017 classes showing on the ARRL web site.

New business:
Next club meeting will be April 8, which is the second Saturday of the month as usual, (weather permitting).  Meeting was adjourned at 4:46
