Treasurerís report the checkbook balance last month was $3675.68 of which $280.08 is earmarked for TARA .  SARA funds amount to $3395.60.


Repeater: Glenn Mauger (WB5OAF), Bill Brundage (NM5WB) and Dave Johnson (KB5YIW) reported on a visit to the SARA repeater that resulted in retuning the cavities and preliminary installation of a new antenna.  High wind conditions kept the team from installing the antenna at its highest position as planned, however, a return trip will rectify the problem.  It was moved (Mauger) and seconded (Johnson) that Bob Broilo be awarded a one year membership for his help in installing the antenna.
