    Dan McDonald, W4DMD reported to Ricky that he has connectivity with our repeated. There was a de-                                                          
     sensing problem with the former Alinco Repeater.  Dan’s name in list of members attending the October

     Meeting was inadvertently omitted from the Web Site.  His attendance was in the October Minutes. 
    
Perhaps, Eric could correct that in the Web Site.  List should include Dan McDonald, W4DMD.

     ICOM repeater is working, software installation progressing. Antenna weatherhead is good but there was
     no ground on antenna.  Grounded to cold water pipe in area.  Ricky/William/Eric will be running five new

        
feedlines into room for additional equipment.  Adding a slide rail to present mast for uhf and vhf additional
       
repeaters for winlink-APRS-DMR, etc. 

     Christmas Parade 9 December. Use .33 for primary and .85 for secondary comm. Participants bring Radio
    programmed and a spare battery is recommeneded. Wear Club shirts if you have them and the Safty Vest,
     again if you have them. This is our opportunity to expose Ham Radio to the community and present a 
    
favorable image of what we can do! Contact Gary, KJ4BOJ and request the position along the parade route
     you desire.

     Please pray for Mary who has a scheduled operation soon.

     Question on our 501-3C. Required payment sent in and cashed but no response back. Government slow
     but if they have our money it must be good.

     someone will take this on as a project and cancass clubs and compile valid current list.

     provided by so many of you in providing your time, money, equipment and expertise. I don't believe our
     club has been this well attended and supported in a very long time. Looking forward to meeting, greeting
