Meeting called to order at 7:45 pm. Previous 4-2-20 meeting minutes were read. Jimmy moved to accept as amended, second by Harvey. Motion passed.
Treasurer’s Report: No update as Dave was absent.
Public Relations: Nothing to report
Points of Interest: Jimmy noted that the Belton Hamfest is March 13 and 14.
Old Business: Bryan reported that there was still no update on moving the repeater to the new SO tower by scenic overlook. Project is behind schedule as SO is having to seek additional frequencies before they can order new repeaters and continue moving antennas to new towers. We are still in consideration.
New Business: Discussion was held about Field Day and consensus was to not gather together but to instead try to make contacts from home. It was decided to continue the tradition of not holding any meetings in June and July. If necessary, we could call for one if needed on the Monday night net. Jimmy also noted that he has the trailer license and will get it to Dave at an in-person meeting. Jimmy also found the controller manual and will get it to Harvey at a later date.
Harvey moved to adjourn, second by Jimmy. Motion passed. Meeting adjourned at 8:05 pm.
