ACTIVITY REPORT

The active DX operators reported that the solar cycle seems to have peaked but it will be three years before it bottoms out. Eric VA3EP would like to practice CW with some other members, if anyone is interested contact Eric to set up a schedule.

 

MINUTES

The minutes of the January meeting gave the incorrect call for Charles, the correct call is VA3CQQ.

It was moved by Kevin VA3THB and seconded by Tim VE3UO that the minutes be accepted as amended. CARRIED

 

UPCOMING EVENTS

PERC Christmas Dinner will be held on December 7th 2013 at PEYC.

Field Day June 22 & 23.

Dave VE3UGT will be meeting with the Quinte Flywheels to see if it would be possible for us to run Field Day from Ameliasburg Fairground in conjunction with their annual display.

It was suggested that a GOTA station be operated this year if we were part of a larger event.

 

NEW BUSINESS

Eric VA3EP gave a presentation on the changes that have been proposed for the PERC website and asked for other suggestions for changes from the membership.

 

REPEATER REPORT

Matt has run the repeater generator and reported that it fails after a few minutes. He will wait for Doug VE3ZDG to return before making any changes. Kevin VA3THB suggested that using premium gas may solve the problem, as the ethanol in lower grades is known to cause problems in small engines.
