Greetings, fellow hams.
Our regular monthly meeting was held Thursday, September 26th, at 7:00 PM at the La Grande fire station on Cove Avenue. There were eleven members in attendance. At 6:00 PM, prior to the meeting, a testing session was held and C.J. Jensen of La Grande became a new ham. Congrats to C.J.!
Results of the August 25th Fox Hunt are in and the winner was Mike Orcutt KF7STP. After the hunt the club treated the fox and all the hunters to dinner at the Golden Crown Restaurant.
Unfortunately, the W4PJS repeater (146.98) is still down. Steps are being taken to get it up and running again.
At our August meeting we voted to donate $100 to the ARRL Spectrum Defense Fund. We received a very nice letter from the ARRL thanking the club for doing that.
Joel Hinshaw KD7JG is in the process of setting up a computer log for the club to use at events such as our Special Event Station at the Union County Fair and at Field Day.
The ARRG Group’s repeater (147.26) (tone 103.5) is up and running. The club voted to donate $100 to them to help offset some of the equipment and travel costs. (They have to travel to the Grande Ronde Valley from Portland to work on the repeater).
The final Fox Hunt of the year will take place on Saturday, October 5th, at 4:00 PM. (Please note that this one is on SATURDAY, not Sunday). Check-ins will be at 3:55 PM on 146.55.
Finally, Joel KD7JG gave a very interesting and informative talk and demonstration on how to set up and operate LoTW (Logbook of the World) and Eqsl.
Our final meeting of 2013 will be October 24th, the fourth Thursday of October. Due to Thanksgiving and Christmas being either on that Thursday or close to it we don’t meet in Nov. or Dec.
73 and Good DX!
