Meeting Minutes

2023 04 11 (Tuesday) - El Parian in White Hall - 1830

In attendance: Keith Cook - KK5ZD, Susan Wolf - KC5DKF, Don Cox - K5DCX, K5DCX's wife, N5RN - Glenn Wolf

This was a very informal meeting. N5RN brought up the following items:
1) Reimbursement of KC5MN for the purchase of a standby DR-1X
2) Changing the mode on the 146.700 repeater to AUTO to allow those with Yeasu radios to take advantage of features on those radios
3) Discussion about the W5R special event station
a) modes we might want to operate
b) when we want to operator

The consensus of those present was to reimburse KC5MN for the repeater since it has been tested and seems to be 100% function. It will be used as a hot spare in the event of any issues with the current repeaters.

There was a lot of discussion about putting the DR-1X on the 146.700 repeater in AUTO mode. The decision was to go ahead and make this change when possible.

As for the Special Event Station - It seems that we need a head count of who will be participating. Two SSB operators from the radio room of the submarine won't work because of the physical size of the room. An SSB and FT8 station on 20/40 M seems to be a general opinion.

More discussion will be held on the SES.

There being no more club business, we closed the business portion of the meeting and enjoyed some fellowship.

Respectfully submitted -

PBARC Officers for 2019-2020

President - Shane Driskill, KG5SRO
Vice President - Brandon Mobley, N5ADK
Secretary/Treasurer, Glenn Wolf, N5RN

The proposed changes to the constitution were adopted. These changes basically removed things in the constitution that were no longer relevant.

There were discussions about the trailer. KG5RO has found several trailers but many need work/tires. It was talked about that if we spend some extra money on the front end we would not have to be making those upgrades/repairs. KG5RSO indicated that he might have a connection that would have a decent trailer for us to get. It may be a month or two down the road. We are in no rush so we decided to wait and see what he comes up with.

We will most likely be doing something for White Hall Founders day which is October 19. It will like be similar to a POTA setup. KG5SRO will be following up.

Larry's Pizza management indicated that a 15% gratuity will be added to our individual tickets IF we opt to use the room in the back. Indications from those that have shared their opinions is that we will look at our options and decide our next steps.

Next meeting Tuesday, October 8, 2019. Location - To Be Determined. UPDATE: Will be at El Parian Mexican restaurant in White Hall
