Meeting was brought to order at 18:05 by James Adkins.

James congratulated the new hams that tested in the VE session and gave a status report on the session.  There were 11 people testing and James noted there we almost ran out of tables and thanked the VE team.

There were 24 in attendance for the regular meeting

James asked Randy Jordan to deliver the treasurers report on behalf of Jeff Morrissey. Report attached to bottom of minutes.

James introduced some visitors from Willard who were exploring amateur radio. Various members spoke to them during and after the meeting about the many things they could do in amateur radio related to their interests.

James gave a report about the recent trip to the EAST TRS site. James did a full PMI and comparison sweep, and spoke with the tower crew, who replaced a jumper and took photos of the coax and antennas as they were doing a structural analysis.  Randy Jordan explained our plans for remote control of the SCOM controller with the Moxa router and our VPN setup.

Shortly after business was completed James introduced our presenter.  The presentation,  “How GPS Works”, by Bob Rennard, N7WY was well received by the membership and after a short Q&A period, concluded at 19:17.   Bob provided a copy of the presentation on PDF to be archived in the Yahoo groups file section for later reference.

The meeting was adjourned by James at 19:19 and visiting ensued shortly thereafter for a period of time.
