Harvey reported on Winter Field Day last weekend. It was cold and wet. We operated two stations and made contacts on 10, 20, 40, 80 meters with Harvey and Hurshel as primary operators. Club folded dipole antenna worked well. Do not have final count of stations worked yet.
Bryan reported that we are still waiting to find someone to install the antenna on the tower. The county is anticipating doing some work at the site and is supposed to include our installation with that work. Bryan talked with the sheriff and was told to get with the chief jailer to arrange a visit. He will also use his drone to get a view of the top of the tower.
New Business: None.
Luci moved to adjourn, second by Harvey. Motion passed. Meeting adjourned at 8:04 pm.
