There were eighteen attendees at this meeting.


Minutes for the June meeting were read by Ron Grossl.

Treasurer’s report was read by Austin Denyer in which he  reported our current funds were $874.79.

Also, he reported that we have 29 paid members at this time.

Motion was made and passed to accept both reports.


Old Business

Ross Leedy made a report on the prizes for the hamfest that were purchased at Universal Radio.

The were:  2 Baofeng HT’s

                  MD-380 for VHF DMR

                  MD-390 for UHF DMR


       Also we have an Astron Power supply donated by Gary Mullins

       And a Raspberry Pi 3 donated by Andrew Castle


Ross spent $450 for the prizes and Austin was making out a check for that amount to reimburse Ross.


John Hager reported that the church youth group will be handling the concessions at the hamfest, just like last year.






New Business


A motion was made and passed to put Fred Jones on the hamfest committee, since he was unavailable at the time the committee was formed.


A motion was made and passed for Ron Grossl to enroll the club’s callsign in LOTW.


Ken Robinson stepped down as a member of our Board of Directors, siting a possible conflict of interest since he has since been elected as club vice-president.  A motion was then made and passed to install Curtis Meade as the new member of the Board of Directors.


We are now submitting a proposal to the club to add the Callsign Trustee, TJ Hoover, as an officer of the club.  Also we submit an amendment to the club to have our board of directors be a panel of 3 members.  We will vote on these amendments at the next club meeting if we have an attendance of over half our membership.


Fred Jones gave a very enjoyable presentation of his morse code keys, including some old equipment used by the railroad.  Thank you very much, Fred.


Motion to adjourn was made and passed at 8:25
