KSU Amateur Radio Club Minutes

Minutes - March 3, 1998

The meeting was called to order at 7:00 P.M. by President John Blessing, NØYRL.

Open House 1998 was first on the agenda.

Certain members of the KSUARC reported complete success in drilling the teeny little holes in the airlock window assemblies. These extremely miniature holes will allow routing of coaxial cable through the airlock on the east side of Rathbone Hall during Open House. The club thanks the members who gave up part of their weekend to do this work (which was approved by certain administrators).

Daniel Soldan, KBØOTV has satellite tracking software that will work for Open House. Bill Kuhn, KO4MH will be working on the satellite display for Open House, too.

Norm Dillman, NØJCC has volunteered to install the R5 antenna on the roof of Rathbone Hall.

David Yoder, KAØJPM will update the club's info brochure. He and Norm Dillman will work on general publicity.

Norm Dillman has donated fifty feet of RG-213U coaxial cable (plus connectors) to the club, to be used with the 2m antenna.

At the next KSUARC meeting, we'll watch the CQ magazine video, Getting Started on Satellites.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:19 P.M. so the W5YI testing session could begin.

David Yoder, KAØJPM
