Meeting with Fire Chief
Ralph and Eric met with Phil Friday afternoon to review the current state of where the club fits into the city's plans. Ralph reported on how our path tests performed between the Centennial Area and the fire hall. Phil expressed a desire to have the area site properly outfitted with a setup before the end of September. Ralph explained that we have access to a retired commercial radio from PEP but it would need antenna and power. Phil asked us to prepare a list of equipment needs to get an antenna in place and the site prepared for use, they will fund and install the coax and antenna as needed.
We also talked about the Bosa complex and the possibility that it may become the future reception area. We also discussed having the repeater on its top, this seems to be becoming a desired situation from the city's viewpoint as well as ours.
