New business
• The Board revisited the ARRL Board of Directors Code of Conduct. It was determined to wait until ARRL minutes became available and see how the Western Directors voted before further discussion.
• A Club member inquired as to the Club’s policy regarding Silent Keys (SK) assistance.
The Club does not have a formal policy at this time. Considerations are liability (as in the case of taking down a tower) and dealing with heirs. Aside from these considerations, the Board feels that it can publish guidelines, create a written brochure or the like to offer assistance. This will be discussed in future meetings.
