Paul Cassel, VE3SY started off with an IRLP report. We now have access
to IRLP on VHF, simply tune to 147.580 simplex, PL 131.8, this is not a
reflector but rather a 30 watt simplex base radio. Paul also explained
that IRLP is being transmitted on the internet on www.Live365.com
, 24hrs a day, 7 days per week. You can of course access IRLP on 444.875
PL 131.8 as well.
Bob Mckie, VA3MCK, last years President thanked Paul on a personal level
for all his time and hard work making this new technology perform as
smooth as it does. Thank you Paul.
Dave Schwartz, VA3DGS, KWARC Treasurer gave a financial statement: we
are $3,000 ahead of the game.
Dave Johnson, VA3MRJ, Program Director, motioned the auto patch be
"open", all were in favour of this change and he briefly
described the upcoming years line up.
Bill Graham, VE3ETK, Vice President, asked if we as a whole could get
support for Field Day up a notch or two. We'll have to work on
supporting this request.
Ron Gravelle, VA3TVS, CANWARN Co-ordinator thanked all who supported the
"outbreak" on July 4th, we had 7 confirmed tornadoes and all
spotters did a fantastic job. Thank you all spotters.
