The October meeting was held at the United Church of Christ 335 Horseblock rd. Farmingville on Oct 20, 2020. The Board meeting started at 7pm and the General meeting followed at 8pm. As usual, the meeting was open to the public but food and drink were not provided and all attendees were required to bring a mask and practice social distancing.
Much of the talk at this meeting revolved around the club trailer. The beautiful Rockwood trailer was donated to the club and final lettering will feature a memorial dedication. We hope to operate winter field day from the trailer, so there is a lot of work to do in a short time. Insurance, fire extinguishers, radios, antennas, cameras were discussed. Over the past few weeks Ed N2XDD has organized work parties with Rich KD2NJA to get the major exterior work done before the cold weather hits. As the trailer has heat, working inside will still be possible as it gets colder. However, no water is available on site so there will be no bathroom facilities available.
The roof has been cleaned and sealed and all the old stickers have been removed.
Ham Radio University will be virtual this year.
