Metro DX Club Meeting Minutes


December 19, 2014


The meeting was called to order at 19:28 by President Jim Mornar N9TK, with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.


In attendance, besides Jim, were John, W9ILY, Bob K9CJ, Mike K9LSH, John K9DRS, Jan WG9V, Mike W9MK, Bob N9ORD, Jerry K9PY, Phil N9LAH, Lee WA9LEY, Bob N9AKR and Joe KC9RNK.




Health and Welfare: no information to report.


The TREASURERS REPORT was distributed by W9ILY indicating a balance of $3523.29 with $627.13 included in that total still due to the K9BWQ estate. Funds have been sent in $1000 increments.


Club Name Badges are in process and will be delivered at the Winter Dinner in January, unless other arrangements have been made with John, W9ILY.


The status of the K9BWQ estate equipment was discussed including the availability of an ICOM 706 MK II HF-VHF transceiver. The tower at the estate will require removal by crane to be determined for some time in the spring.


The remaining items are being offered on EBay, and Jim N9TK would appreciate help in the process from anyone familiar with auction sales.




Donations of club funds to support DX activities were discussed. It was proposed that $1200 be allocated from the funds received from the K9BWQ estate sales to support DXpeditions: $500 to K1N, $500 to NCDXF and $200 to INDEXA. This was voted on by the members present after a motion by WG9V and second by W9MK. Future funds from the K9BWQ estate sale are to be considered at a future meeting, perhaps February. Under consideration may be an addition to the club BY-LAWS to accommodate future spending.



Following a motion by N9ORD and second by Bob, K9CJ the meeting was called to a close so that socializing and pizza could be enjoyed.


The meeting closed at 19:44
