OCRA Membership Meeting – July 8, 2019

Dave, W4SAR, club president opened the meeting with introductions, the topic for tonight’s meeting being Field Day results and call for officer reports.  In attendance tonight were 8 license-seeking candidates, one of our largest membership meeting testing groups.

Dan, KR4UB, treasurer reported 73 members are current with their dues with 26 members needing renewal. Club treasury balance is in line with ongoing expenses.

Nick, KA1HPM, stated two towers near Lowes hardware in Chatham County exist with anntenna and feedline.  Steve, W3HAL, and Dan, KR4UB, would assist in assessing the possibility of usage.

Field Day Results:

Dave, W3SAR, provided a breakdown point breakdown, and will post rinal results on this    website soon.  The unofficial count was 2997 QSO points, with 1727 QSO points awarded multipliers for a total of 14,985 points.  We had less points this year, but propogImage result for ARRL field day 2019ation was poor, except for 40 Meter.

Steve, KZ1X, propsed running 100 Watts rather than 5 Watts next year. While QRP, or low power…5 Watts, gets you multipliers, 100 Watts would allow more stations to hear, which would be more fund. Additionally, if sun spot activity is nearing a null, then 100 Watts may a sound strategy for the next couple of year.

Wilson gave thanks to Steve, W3HAL, for doing a great job on the N1MM network.  Steve, W3HAL, stated the 10 dedicated computers along with static IP addresses provided more resilency and uptime than last year. Wilson also appreciated John, KM4MDR, for doing a wonderful job managing the food preparation and service…at a’boys!

Additional Notes:

Dan, KR4UB, stated Phillips High School still has an antenna and transceiver used from an earlier ISS contact needing reclamation.  If intered in assisting, please leave a reply!

Finally, Dan, KR4UB, will present FT8 at the next DFMA meeting!
