September 2016 Minutes

JCARA, Inc. Club Minutes – September 2016

Meeting Called to Order by President Marilyn, AF5DP
Prayer by Chaplain Chuck, N9RRI
Pledge of Allegiance led by Marilyn, AF5DP

Program:  Richard, AF5AQ, giving examples with two projects, a continuity checker for coax cable and a 12 volt power gate, showed us how being a, “Home brewer” can be fun, a learning experience and save money as well.  By accumulating the needed components and knowing how to put them together, that’s how Ham Radio got it’s start and what it’s been about for years.  “Cheap” is a Ham’s favorite word.

Officers Absent: Past President Charlie, N2PKW

No Quorum, therefore no Business Meeting.

Minutes and Treasurer Reports were read.

Sick Call:  Don, KA5DON, injured by his donkey

Richard, AF5AQ has ordered the Hamfest and Christmas Party Prizes.

Lawrence, K9EYZ and Larry, K5LGP are heading up the “Boy Scouts Jamboree On The Air” held at Sheppard’s Park, October 15th.  They will acquaint the boys with digital and HF phone operations, hoping for good propagation with our 2 Meter Repeater as back up.

Next Club Meeting will be October 25th at the St. Martin Community Center, 7:00 p.m.

Respectfully Submitted by

Valerie, N9RQX
Club Secretary
