KSU Amateur Radio Club Minutes

Minutes - September 1, 1998

The meeting was called to order at 7:05 P.M. by President John Blessing, NØYRL.

Norm Dillman, NØJCC announced an interesting program for the next MAARS meeting on September 11. Brad Guenther from KSU will discuss a variety of topics, including Internet security issues.

Norm announced the amateur radio auction planned for October 10 at 1 P.M. The location is the Dillmans' place, 210 Gerht Rd. A number of items have been donated for KSUARC to auction. (See the main page for a partial list). The members of KSUARC need to support this auction by being available to help on auction day.

The club welcomed new member Joe Ralston, K6ESR to his first meeting.

The Dillmans are planning to run a special event station on September 19, in observance of Dr. Brinkley day(s).

The members agreed that the air conditioner in the Weapons Room should be kept running at some level during the warm months.

It was informally agreed that we would sell the legendary pop machine for $50, but would try to get some idea of what it's worth.

There was a lengthy discussion on the adventure this summer with locating the source of interference to the local 2m repeaters. The source was a TV amplifier in the Tuttle Creek area. The interference varied in frequency, therefore affecting both repeaters at times over the last four months.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:15 P.M.

David Yoder, KAØJPM
