President’s report 5-3-20

Good evening to everyone on the net. Thanks Royce for taking the net.

Yesterday we had our virtual club breakfast on the Cedaredge repeater. We had a total of 14 participants so pretty good turnout.

Afterwards the board had a meeting regarding Field Day 2020. Since it looks like we probably won’t get our application approved by the City of Montrose, we discussed other options, which we will present at the club meeting.  We encourage you to visit http://www.arrl.org/field-day to check out ways you may want to get involved this year.

In the meantime we would like to know if anyone has private property and would be willing to host Field Day. I won’t go into all the details, but will say we would not use your facilities, or even your equipment or antenna. If this is something you’d consider please send me an email so we can continue the conversation.

Our club meeting will be May 15th and will be via Zoom. I will be sending out an email next week so keep an eye out for it.

That’s all I have for now.

    Kathy-

    Please contact Larry or Steve from The American Legion Amateur Radio Club as well as they are members of MARC.

    They have contact with a gentleman who has property, as well as a building he is very interested in having as a radio center. My apologies for not remembering his name or call. I believe he as been to a MARC meeting and talked about having a main station for use with TALARC and maybe MARC. He was still building the housing and was in process of acquiring the land which both have been done now.

    I will try to get his name, call and phone number and will send another email to you. The email needs to be private unless he gives permission to publicize the information to the board or whatever- I’m not sure if this is a email to you or to everyone. 🙂

    Hi,
    Everyone is welcome to use our 10 acres. We’re a bit over 300 miles away from Montrose. We have rolling pasture and a craggy mountain peak in our northern acreage. We are at circa 8000 feet elevation.

    Lerin, KE0ZMW
