Repeater report Willie W5WIW
Bill has the 147.000 and is working on it. Willie W5WIW put the stop to
Bill working on the repeater because he took the crystals to the club in
Denver to test a repeater for 147.000. We should know the results of the
test soon. Willie apologizes for not asking to do this previously, but
he was going to Denver.

Old Business
Thanks to David Johnson for presentation on the High Park Fire.

New Business
Willie W5WIW - club needs to buy new set of crystals. Motion made and
approved to buy new crystals
Bill RGVPE - wants to try and build WARS back up. One way to do so is to
make sure equipment is working. He also proposes to find another site to
put up a better antenna and another meeting place. Motion made and
passed to explore moving the meetings back to the Union Hall.
