The meeting started with a report on this year’s Field Day and a discussion of what we should remember for next year. Then we discussed the budget, including plans for upgrading the A2 shack HF radio and antenna. Finally, HamCon is coming to Torrance this fall, September 15-17. Besides interesting talks, there will be an opportunity for an added cost to tour the radio room on the battleship Iowa. More information on all of these topics is available in the powerpoint presentation, which can be found on the club web site.
The meeting ended with a raffle. All members including the new members received a free raffle ticket. Victor won a Pixie transceiver, Don got the heat shrink tubing, Kirk got a helping hands tool, and Susan got the tape measure.
Wayne volunteered to do a presentation on his project to rebuild a 1928 HF radio. He is on the calendar for the October meeting.
