NOTE: the below is the original planning document written before the Jan. 2013 club meeting. See attached Comments and Files for progress reporting and additional information.
The first club meeting for 2013 was well attended, and we kicked off 2013 with a list of projects and events.
Red Cross Amateur Station:
Previously our shack in the Red Cross was in a very small room off the main lobby of the building. The Red Cross needed it for other purposes, so they gave us a larger room in the back of the building. We had to move all the indoor equipment, make a new entrance for antenna coax, etc. Equipment is in boxes and stacked up. We are in the process of turning the new room into a 3-4 station emergency comm center we can also use for non-emergency amateur radio.
Existing tower and antennas stayed where it was. Coax is through garage door/back wall for all antennas.
Yet To Complete:
Install ground rods for tower(no visible grounding so we must assume there aren't any)
Mount entry ground bar and lightning arrestors
