For those not able to attend, can you review the proposed meeting schedule for 2020 and provide input on the dates?

Scott - You were signed up to host one of the meetings at SnoDEM. Is that still OK? Any preference for which meeting?

Thanks

The Q4 general membership meeting is next Saturday, Dec 7th in Tukwila.  In additional to the normal meeting business, the elections for most of the board of directors will take place. The agenda was post last week on the website and I just uploaded a copy to the files area. 

The meeting will start at 10am and will be held at the Tukwila Fire Station #51. (444 Andover Park East, Tukwila, WA) We are normally in the conference room on the west side of the building, but the last couple months we were asked to use the east side conference room.

Update on Sept 2019 WWARA Meeting and call for help

Kenny Richards
 

As reported in the meeting minutes for the Sept 2019 general meeting, Howard Wilhelm, K7UID resigned as the 440 band chair due personal reasons. Because of the timing of things, this information wasn't shared in the agenda, but was added by me during the meeting. During the meeting Steve Van Wambeck, N9VW volunteered to take the position and it was approved by the board. 
 
I have since been reminded that while the Board of Directors is responsible for approving band chair's, it is required for the board to consider nominations from the general membership. To address this oversight, I have updated the posted minutes to reflect that Steve, N9VW was appointed the temporary 440 band chair and the board of directors will accept nominations for the next 30 days. I expect the board will select the band chair prior to the December membership meeting.
 
At this time I would also like to announce that Peter Dahl, WA7FUS has decided to step down as the 2m band chair. Peter was nice enough to fill in temporarily when the role became vacant several years ago, but has decided to scale back to just his other positions. So the board is also accepting nominations for the 2m band chair position. 
 
With two critical roles being vacant at the same time, the board would like to remind the membership and repeater owners that the WWARA is run by volunteers, some of which have been in their current roles for a long time. For the continued success of the organization, one that benefits a large percentage of the hams in Western Washington, new volunteers are needed. The band chair position is actually designed to chair a committee, even though this hasn't been the situation in a while. Both the 2m and especially the 440 band chair would actually benefit from additional help due to the volume of coordinations. 
 
Please reach out if you have any questions or are interested in volunteering.

Also, note the DR-1X can be set for NFM as well (12.5 KHz.) - a properly setup modem and with the repeater set to NFM should operate just fine in a 12.5 KHz. channel.

Let's not assume one incorrectly built repeater means that a correctly configured repeater cannot be built.
