WWDXC Board Meeting 05/23/2005 Note that the meeting was held one week earlier than normal this month due to the holiday weekend of the 30th. In Attendance: Hillar N6HR Elsie N6XY Kirk N7UK Joe W7QN Denny W7SNH Marina N7LSL Herb W7ZF Pat W7GTO Brian N9ADG The Secretary was not only late for the meeting by approximately 8 minutes, and additionally was suitably chastised for not stopping by the club PO box to pick up the mail. Consequently, there may have been correspondence, but it remained unread, safely ensconced in the PO Box, during the entire meeting. The Treasurer's report was reviewed and approved. The Secretary is to follow up with N0AX to make sure an email address for W7DX is on QRZ.com (and has since found out that QRZ.COM lists "firstname.lastname@example.org" as the contact email address on QRZ.COM. Thanks Ward!) The Packet Cluster equipment has been moved to N6MZ QTH Our w7dx Repeater site (147.00, input 600Kc down) was visited on 5/17, and the backup machine seen, in preparation for transition to Herb W7ZF as coordinator. A discussion ensued about appropriate use of the machine, and consideration given to ARES/RACES usage as necessary. W7DX callsign is to be transitioned to the new trustee KT7G The new WWDXC Bylaws, thoughtfully drafted by Hillar, redrafted, and reviewed by the board over the last few months will be placed before the membership at large for review and a vote "real soon now", after a motion was carried by the board. A suggestion to have the bylaw voting meeting at field day was shouted down by the president. FIELD DAY FIELD DAY FIELD DAY. Remember, Field Day is June 25,26 this year, 11am Saturday to 11am Sunday.
