Wow! next workdays for the sites we have lots to get done--fix the one anchor with the problem. Add more antennas at Monticello. At the 88 cut back folage around the guy wires, reset the clock, and add some fine tuning on some equipment. Always something to do in order to stay safe and keep equipment running right--remember we like to eat afterwards.

Howdy One and All, looks like our Fall weather has left us in the cold for a few days. Stay warm.
Well as you all know this is the news from our November meeting.
We had a great one with 7 members and 2 visitors--who are prospective new members.
Our VE test session on the 24th we had 2 candidates, administered 4 elements and resulted in 2 New TECH'S, both from Morehead Collage. Seems one of their instructors advised them to get their Amateur Radio Licenses.
Looks like we had a lot of caretaking going on at both our repeater sites this month. Monticello--got the time reset, anchors checked out, one needs some help--litte concrete will help and another tie point, otherwise they are all still plumb. Mighty 88, All star checked out. The clock got reset, however; it was the day before we changed time, thus making us 1 hour off. Talk about adding a DTMF8 in order to syronize the time with other equipment.
