OLD BUSINESS:

Repeater

Marshall K4UKB stated that our new repeater had been repaired and returned to the club. He also stated that he had placed the repeater in operation at the original repeater site. It is now running on DC with a battery and a power supply to float the battery. The repeater is now using the 100 HZ tone. Also note that Marshall has a 70cm repeater running at his QTH on 440.800 with a 100 HZ tone.

NEW BUSINESS:

Club Trailer

Marshall K4UKB Hosted the club meeting to allow the members to tour the new club trailer. Chris KG4UQL that we needed to determine the number and type of cable feeds we need to put in the trailer. Feeds such as data, power, telephone and antennas need to be considered first. Equipment then must be looked at as to type of radio and how many. Do we configure the same as used on field day or something else?

Bike Trek

Marshall stated that this year’s bike trek went really well thanks to K4UKB, K4FT and K4OH.

Bob Sowders’ estate

Marshall K4UKB stated that Bob’s Wife needed someone to inventory and help her sell the amateur equipment. Maybe we can use EBay again.

Boy Scouts

Our Guest Bruce Campbell KM4EHU stated that the Boy Scouts were having a Jamboree on Saturday morning and asked us to set up a Amateur radio station at Anderson Dean Park in Harrodsburg mid morning until 3pm for the scouts. Contacts were Scott Swift, Michelle Berry and Ashley Mcurdy.
