Treasurer Rpt: Our club will not be able to get matching funds for KC6TYG repeater upgrade expenses due to paperwork requirements at the fire department.

Equipment Rpt: We held a site assessment/cleanup on July 7. It was decided to build a plywood Box to house the repeater duplexers. It needs to be approx 2 1/2 x 2 x 3 feet with hinges for opening. We need volunteer(s) to construct this box. If you can help, please RSVP to me.

President Rpt: Our club participated in field day June 21-22. We assisted with site preparation and Bert generously filled in to send packet messages. There is a movement to reassign part of the 2m band to aeronautical use. The International Amateur Radio Assn is mounting an objection.
