MEETING MINUTES - February 19, 2010

Meeting called to order by vice president W9ILY in lieu of K9MDO's absence. K9PY read a report from W9NKV on the Metro Winter fest. He then gave the treasurers report of $697.76 in the checking account and $100.00 cash on hand.

Contest report from N9LAH. There will be 2 teams for Metro this year for the NAQP RTTY contest: Metro Muttz and the Metro Maniacs. The ARRL CW contest is this weekend.

W9ILY reported that there was a request for a Metro Gold certificate. This led to a discussion on what the charge should be for the certificate. If was agreed to charge 2 IRC's or $3 if electronically sent or $5 if sent by mail.

W9ILY asked everyone to think about where we could hold Field Day this year since the location that we had last year wants to charge us $140 to use that location this year.

N9AKR gave a report on the Orlando Hamfest that he attended recently. K9PY gave a program with pictures on his experience of hiking up a 4800 foot mountain near Tucson with ham gear to participate in the VHF/UHF contest in January. He also talked about operating from the Titan Missile site on their huge Discone antenna and his visit to the Pima Air museum.

Those in attendance were: N9LAH, W9NKV, W9PDS, N9AKR, K9PY and W9ILY. 

Respectfully submitted,
K9PY Secretary/Treasurer
