Minutes of Baldwin Hills ARC Meeting 12/3/97
The twelfth and last 1997 meeting of the Baldwin
Hills Amateur Radio Club was called to order by the Secretary, Hugh, NV6H,
at 7:55 PM on December 3, 1997. At 8:08, the President, Greg, KD6AIS, arrived
and took over the chair. Also in attendance was David, N6HGJ, our esteemed
Membership Chairman/ Treasurer.

- The President re-opened the nominations for
the 1998 election of officers. Ed, WA6MDJ, was nominated and seconded in

will keep his job, probably for a long, long time.

the November question of whether a cheaper meeting room should be used.
Ed noted that the room only costs $25 a month, far less than anyone else
pays, and thus the same as the smaller rooms would cost. The President
said that he would talk about this again if anything changed.
- While Ed had the floor, he discussed the
upcoming Mount Harvard repeater maintenance. Arrangements were made to
pay the rigger who was going to climb the tower.
- Everyone was again reminded of the Christmas
party at Bruno's. This event was held, and it was an unqualified success,
just as great as we'd remembered it from 1996. The ongoing question of
a meeting date for January was settled by deciding to skip the month, due
to conflict with the winter CES in Las Vegas.
II. New Business
- There was no new business. The President
thanked Samir for the typically awesome refreshments, and Jim Martin, for
