The regular 4th-Thursday meeting was held at 7:00 PM on July 25th. There were ten members in attendance.

Mark reported that everything is ready to set up the club’s first ever Union County Fair booth. Booth decorating will begin on Monday, July 29th. Our Special Event station will be operating on 10M, 15M, 20M,and 40M as propagation allows. We will be using the club call sign W7GRA. We will also have a VHF/UHF rig monitoring mostly 145.15. Call in and say hello.

Mike reported that things are still on track for our second annual Swap Meet at the fairgrounds on August 17th. If you have stuff to sell and want a table contact Mike. His club email address is on W7GRA.org.

The W4PJS 146.98 repeater is still down.

We still have two more FOX HUNTS planned for August 26th and October 6th. These are lots of fun and the club buys dinner afterwards. Contact a club officer for details.

Finally, Jeff Crews KE7QYU gave an interesting presentation on how the club members email list is set up and managed. There’s more to it than you’d think.

Our next meeting will be on August 22nd at 7:00 PM at the La Grande fire station on Cove Ave. Why not plan to attend and be a part of what’s going on?
