Repeaters, Antennas, Event Communications, Emergency Planning At the end of Feb. meeting Jack and Jerry went into CDF
for the Emergency Planning Team and worked on the packet station. We had a very large group for the EPM and talked about a lot of
things: a VOAD Grant, Weapons of Mass Destruction Grants are coming through and we will possibly be getting some new equipment for So,.
Humboldt. Jack talked to Clark Guzzi today and they did get a grant to buy a bunch of antennas and coaxes for the various health
centers and other agencies. We will be at the end of the list . We are in the process of building an antenna structure at the Command
Post at the CDF Station. . The pipe should have been delivered. Jack requests a work group to pour a cement slab to secure the antenna.
Jerry offered a cement mixer. Nancy suggested this Friday after the EPT meeting.
We need to develop a Wish list. One of the suggestions was for software for the computer. This list needs to go in by March 19th. The
CDF Station needs a generator. Nancy submitted a request for a generator for the Veterans and Beginnings. The Veterans would help with
the Hospital overflow and both are potential sites for shelters.
We will plan a group meeting in May for the Pratt Mountain Repeater Site. The date will be discussed at the next meeting.
Jerry reported an Emergency Planning Team meeting this Friday at the CSF station at 1:00 p.m. Nancy invited everyone to come and learn
about the broader community involvement with disaster planning.
Jack stated we are having a small problem with the 440 receiver up at Sawmill. Right now the 94 is not linked to the 79. He will go up
and take a look at it.
There is an HGF exercise tomorrow with a check on 40 meter with Sacramento and Eureka.
There is a Disaster Drill coming up for the Schools in April.
Jack relates that we have applied for a club station call W6Hum
He has not heard if it is accepted. If we get it do we want to use it for our repeaters?
Gary reported on the Space Station transmissions. They are erratic but Lamar and Gary have been transmitting several times in the last
few weeks. Jack and Jerry have both received email messages from Gary. It is working.
All those attending will have their names put in the box for the drawing.
Thank you all.
