of Baldwin Hills ARC Meeting 8/2/00
The eighth 2000 meeting of the
Hills Amateur Radio Club
was called to order at 1946 on August 2, 2000 by the President,
James, N6KWI. Also present were the Secretary, Hugh, NV6H,
and David, N6HGJ, our really cool Membership Chairman and
- Since we had two guests, WB6GFA and Bill
Randolph, we went around and introduced everyone before getting
into old business
- The Secretary read the minutes of the June
meeting, which were accepted as corrected. He then gave the ARRL
report, centering mostly on the FCC's new (and very confusing)
CORES registration system. Basically, if you're not registered
with ULS, you need to be, then FCC enters you into CORES and
you can transact business online, sort of.
- The Treasurer reported that the Club balance
was probably around $60, and there would be more coming in from
a recent life membership.
- The Presdent reported that the two-meter
Santiago receiver is fixed, and the system has been put back
in normal operation.
- Ed, KD6LT, read the highlights of
the Los Angeles Area Council of Amateur Radio Clubs, which he
had attended as Club representative. The FCC turned down LA Sheriff's
petition to use 2.4 Ghz for video downlink. No amateur radio
spectrum was lost at WARC-2000, and the 40 meter realignment
issue is on the agenda for the next conference in a year or two.
- Dieter, KB6LVW, reported that he had
straightened out TASMA about the N6EW Club call, and that
25 had attended the last testing session at Jun's.
Submitted for approval
this 6th day of September, 2000
by Hugh Stegman, NV6H, Secretary
1. Dieter proposed that meetings start right
at 7:30. It was noted that we had done this in the past, and
the Secretary would try to get things going sooner. Some people
have trouble coming from work and making it on time.
2. Jay, NY6L, reminded everyone that the Antique
Radio Society was meeting.
3. With this, we stood ADJOURNED at 2055,
until September 6, 2000.
