The 2 meter antenna is destroyed. He took the equipment from the site to his home. This project will be put on hold until warmer weather.

Tony Ehler mentioned that the sheriff’s office is planning to remodel the jail and we may need to find a new location for our meetings starting in January or February. Joe Homier said he will check into the West Fire Station as that is where he has Boy Scout meetings and family dinners at no charge.

Joe Homier checked into Ugalde’s Restaurant for our Christmas dinner on December 17th at 6:30 P.M. They are remodeling the place and should be finished and reopened as Moe’s Restaurant. We each will order off the menu. If not reopened a backup plan is to go to Pizza Hut.

Joe Homier talked to Justin Wall about the Time and Temperature Telephone Line and it gets about 40,000 hits a month. It was discussed to check into doing it twice a year (Spring and Fall) instead of every month. Each member is to write an advertisement for this line using between 26 and 28 words and bring to the January meeting.

Joe Homier recommended that we have a Santa Claus Net on Christmas Eve beginning at 8:00 P.M. He suggested putting an ad in the newspaper so people would know about it and where to tune in for it.
