James  announced that Bill Kastler KF0IQ will be new editor for the club newsletter.  

James reported that he had visited the Branson tower site and had taken photos. Due to A/V equipment problems we were unable to view the photos at the January 2015 meeting.  James also reported that the ground work has been completed at the site. The repeater is installed at ground level and we are just waiting for a tower crew to install the antennas. 

CU is getting close to getting a contract to do work at 015 site and will be replacing a bad jumper at the site.

A representative of the the Nixa Community Foundation presented a check for $1000  for use towards the purchase of a club emergency communications trailer.  Photos of the presentation will be published in the club newsletter.  

James spoke about other funding opportunities to go towards purchase and setup of the trailer.

Bob Rennard N7WY gave us a preview of his talk on GPS and Portable navigation devices.  Since he was unable to deliver the power point part of his presentation due to an A/V issues with the computer, he has graciously agreed to present to us again at the February 2015 meeting.
