New Business

  • Radios – The club has 2 Radios we knew of, one of them bing an Icom 735 radio. A letter was read from technician stating that USB crystal is defective. The technician, Paull NM5PH, offered to purchase the radio and repair it at his own expense if the club decided not to attempt a repair requiring a difficult to find crystal. Bill KK5ZH motioned and Sturge WA5K seconded the motion to sell the radio to Paull NM5PH. Paull NM5PH abstained from the vote in order to prevent a conflict of interest. The motion passed and the radio was sold. The club still has one radio.
