WWARA Dec 04 Meeting Agenda and Zoom Call Info

Kenny Richards
 
Edited

The last WWARA meeting of the year is this Saturday at 19:00 PST. The agenda and Zoom meeting information is included below.

While the agenda is fairly short, but there are three important new business items to vote on.
  • As part of the ongoing DNR discussion, I am proposing adoption of a 5cm band plan. (version in the agenda) With a published band plan, it will be possible for the WWARA to issue coordinations for HamWAN sectors, which is a requirement for access to DNR sites under the amateur radio program. The band plan is fairly simple, it only identifies known activity in the area. The logic is that expanding it when there is additional use cases is easier/smarter than trying to 'guess' how something would use it in the future.
  • Board of Director Elections - The four named positions (Chairman, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer) and two of the four general board positions (#2 and #4) will be voted. The secretary position is still vacant and there is no nominee right now. This is one of the most important roles on the board and we are looking for volunteers.
  • Scheduling the meetings for 2022 - We will be looking for feedback if continuing at 7PM (1900) is still a good time or should we revert back to the traditional 10am time on Saturdays? (or alternate?)

WA DNR Public Records Request pertaining to Amateur Repeater Leases

Randy Neals
 

FYI,

On September 28th a Public Records Request was made to the Public Records Officer of the Washington Department of Natural Resources for copies of documents responsive to the 6 categories below.

Today, the WA DNR Public Records Department responded, providing a Box.net link with 155 documents responsive to that records request.
I have copied those records over to a Google Shared Drive and am making that link and the documents available to you at the following URL.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ktbf5di_j4DyYD8P0FsaCQCnvwK2iYTX?usp=sharing


The Public Records Request asked for the following documents/information:

1. Executed lease documents providing amateur radio operators with access to state lands or towers under a reduced rental fee as described in RCW 79.13.500 “Amateur radio repeater stations – Legislative intent” and limited to those leases which were in force at any time between July 1, 2019 to present.

2. Notices as provided for under the leases, including written communications sent or received by Washington DNR in relation to the above noted leases, including termination letters to lease holders between July 1, 2019 to present.

3. Accounting or financial records that show the full market rental rate for all amateur radio use of state-owned property, the reduced rental fees paid by amateur radio operators for same, and the amount of budget or inter-department funds requested by WA DNR, and the amount received by WA DNR re “assuring the department full market rental for use of state-owned property” in RCW 79.13.500. This request is narrowed to the dates July 2019 to June 30, 2021 reflecting the state fiscal years 2020 and 2021.

4. Financial records pertaining to non-payment for use of state lands or towers by amateur radio operators between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2021.

5. Documents pertaining to tower site equipment inventory or audits of amateur radio equipment at DNR tower sites, and any reconciliation to leases with findings of less or more equipment on the sites than is permitted in the applicable lease agreements referenced in paragraph 1. above.

6. DNR criteria or policy which would limit the number of amateur radio operators on a given DNR tower site, or limit the number of radios, radio, repeaters, or frequencies in use by amateur radio operators at a site.

Re: DNR Oct 5 & 14th Zoom Meetings

Kenny Richards
 

Please see the Sept meeting minutes for details on the Zoom meetings with DNR.


DNR Oct 5 & 14th Zoom Meetings

 

Have the inks to these proposed open meetings with the DNR regarding the number of ham systems per site been posted anywhere?  If so where, or post them here please.

Has anyone registered to make comment at the Oct 5 Natural Resources Board meeting?  Is there a Zoom link to this meeting?
