N3QCR reported most of the correspondence since the last meeting has been membership renewals.
N3EJY reported that propagation studies will be made available on CD.
SNPR N3EJY clarified questions and requested that the committee
have rules and regulations
ready for the April meeting. N3BPB suggested that a frequency be found in the 2 meter
band, perhaps 147.000 with and (-) offset.
WA3IOU asked for information on the interference complaint
he had submitted. He stated that he
had received no notification of his request to have the stipulation lifted from his original
coordination. N3EJY stated WPRC had been notified that the repeater in Ohio causing the
interference had been moved back to its original location. He also stated that he would see
that WA3IOU would receive official notification this evening via e-mail.
N3MBR speaking on behalf of KE3PD indicated that the repeater
on the frequency 224.060 in Corry
had submitted an OTA notice in December based on information received from KR3P at the October
meeeting. KE3PD has not received initial coordination in writing from the frequency coordinator
and would like have the proper paperwork for his files. N3EJY will check on the paper work and
see that it is completed.
KC3ET requested that WPRC present a forum at the 2 Rivers Hamfest.
Times available are 9:00 a.m.
or 10:00 a.m. N3EJY will check with N3GPM and get back to Chuck.
N3BPB suggested that the newsletter be sent to former dues
paying repeater trustees in an
attempt to regain lost members.
The next meeting of WPRC will be held on April 22, 2001 in
Brooville. This is a change from the
normal 3rd Sunday of the month because Easter falls on our regular meeting date.
There being no further business the meeting was adjorned at 2:25 p.m. on motion by N3BPB/W3CYO.
