Club executives and directors present were: Jeffrey Pawlan WA6KBL, President; Will Jensby W0EOM, Treasurer; Bill Ogilvie KQ6FY, Secretary; Jim Moss WB9AJZ, director; and Art Lange W6RXQ. There were 17 members and visitors in attendance. The activity scheduled for this meeting was a talk by Paul Schuch, N6TX.
The meeting began with a talk by Jeffrey about his trip to France, where he was able to work moonbounce on 10 Ghz. After some discussion concerning the clubís ability to host a microwave conference, several motions were made and some were voted on:
It was proposed that the 50 MHz and Up Group would participate in Pacificon, in 1998, regardless of any other conference activities that might also take place in 1998 or early 1999. This was seconded and then voted on. It was accepted by a vote of 10 for, 0 against.
A motion was made that the 50 MHz and Up Group propose to the Sacramento Group that the Western States Weak Signal Society Conference for 1998 be co-hosted, in Sacramento, at a mutually agreeable location. This motion was seconded and then voted on. It was accepted by a vote of 7 for, 0 against.
It was moved that regardless of the 50 MHz and Up Groups participation in Pacificon, that a technical conference would be organized by the club in 1998, somewhere in the Bay area, with the date to be determined later. This was voted on and was rejected by a vote of 1 for, 4 against.
It was moved that regardless of the 50 MHz and Up Groups participation in Pacificon, that a technical conference would be organized by the club in 1999, somewhere in the Bay area, with the date to be determined later. This was voted on and was accepted by a vote of 9 for, 0 against.
The Art Lange, W6RXQ, was designated the contact person for Pacificon and WSWSS activities, and Will Jensby, W0EOM, was designated the planning person for the 1999 conference.
