May, 2021 meeting

Club Vice President Bill N3WD opened the May 2021 meeting. A turnout of fourteen people. Neil W3ZQI Secretary read the April meeting minutes. Dave AB3TE gave the treasurer’s report; post office box renewal is due. We welcomed new attendee John KD3H. HAMFEST: Some volunteers have signed up for two-hour shifts at the hamfest; several more would be appreciated. Food chits and water will be available for the volunteers. Truck of Deliciousness has been named the food vendor–featuring breakfast selections. Masks at the hamfest should be worn when close to others. E-mail announcements of the hamfest are planned (Neil W3ZQI asked for anyone’s help with Mail Chimp). NEW BUSINESS: A TS850 was purchased for repair and subsequent sale as a source of funds. In-person meetings are desired but the main meeting will continue via Zoom for the time being. Perhaps a supplemental meeting at a restaurant. INFORMAL: Dave AB3TE spoke of his Rig Expert for antenna analysis and some recent experiences. Tom KC3RJR and Alicia KC3RJQ spoke of their condo antenna options. — Neil W3ZQI Secretary
