Meeting called to order by President Scott Wright at 6:30 PM with 29 members present.

Technical committee reported that the phone patch will be removed from the 146.820 repeater. The power failure at the 82 repeater site verified the backup power supply work fine. If you hear of any weather station information that is bogus, contact John Scott to report the problem.
