MINUTES.
 
It was moved by Kevin VA3THB and seconded by Joe VA3JLF that the minutes of the March meeting be accepted . CARRIED

Field Day June 22 & 23.
 
Dave VE3UGT reported that the proposal for field day to be operated from Ameliasburg Fairground in conjunction with the annual Quinte Flywheels display had been discussed and approved.

Dave showed some Google maps views of the site and explained where the stations would be set up.

Radio Club members will not be charged admission to the event if they are going to be operating, although it was suggested that members who where planning on looking at other displays pay the fee as this is a fundraiser for the Quinte Flywheels. There will be a dinner available for $15.00 provided by the Flywheels. It was agreed that PERC will join QARC at the new site.

NEW BUSINESS

Bob VE3QWB reported that RAC would like a contact person from each club for liaison with the RAC Ontario East Section. Ian VE3EP suggested that the club President perform this duty as he was already a RAC contact.

It was agreed by the members present that this would be the best solution.

Art VE3SQG asked if there would be a network test for Field Day at the May meeting. It was agreed that there would be a test at the meeting.

PRESENTATION

Art VE3SQG demonstrated his SDR using a European Digital TV Dongle.
