From Our President...

This is an important month – Field Day is just a few weekends from now.  Eric, N8YC, our Field Day Chairman, will present the program for this month's club meeting.  I've asked Eric to include a demonstration of the logging program used for Field Day, as some of us are unfamiliar with the program.  He is holding a planning meeting at 6:00 PM prior to the club meeting.  Come early and join the planning, and then come and participate in the Field Day weekend.  It is always great to work with friends and new acquaintances for the common good and personal satisfaction of being part of the event.

At the May Board meeting on Tuesday June 26, the Board voted to purchase up to four new Yaesu repeaters at up to $2,000 plus shipping and incidental expenses.  We have two repeaters sort of with serious issues. Eventually, all our repeaters can have the same repeater equipment, making it easier to maintain and tweak. Article IV of our By Laws includes this provision as paragraph E.:

    "Expenditures of more than $1000 must be approved by the membership prior to committing to the expenditure."

It is only common sense to ask for your approval of such a large expenditure.  This is the club's money, not the Board's money.  All members can vote on whether or not to approve this expenditure.  Members of the Board will be present to explain the desirability of this expenditure, and to answer your questions.  While the Board members hope that you will approve this request, it is your decision to make.  Come and participate in making this important decision.


Fred, K9OHE
