Tim VE3UO reported that the sale of equipment from the estate of VE3IVC and other donated equipment raised $2300 for Quinte ARC.

Art VE3SQG passed out information from Eric VA3EP regarding the new web page at www.peradioclub.ca

CLUB PICNIC

The members present commented on what a great time everyone had at the club picnic.

A vote of thanks to Art and Betsy for the use of their home and to Kevin for being the club Chef

was moved by Tim VE3UO and seconded Al VE3FZ CARRIED

 

ARES REPORT

Peter VE3UR spoke about the Hilly 100 bicycle race in Bancroft  on September 11th and asked for volunteers to help
with the communications, as the route goes as far as Foymount for some riders there are a lot of areas where cell coverage is poor or does not exist.

OLD BUSINESS

Ian VE3EP told the members that he had asked for help obtaining a marine receiver for the Mariners Museum. He actually received five radios from Sean VE3YUF Keith picked them up and one was repaired and installed. The antenna at the museum needs work so Ian and Kevin will repair the coax.

Peter VE3KWM asked if the changes in signal from VE3TJU were due to changes at the repeater site,

or propagation.

 It was felt propagation was the main reason as no changes had been made at the site.

Tim VE3UO asked about linking the PERC web pages to the QARC pages. It was decided this would be a good idea. Tim will make the required changes

The meeting adjourned at 9:54 pm

NEXT MEETING Bloomfield Town Hall 7:30 pm October 7th 2010
