There were 11 members present

Winfred KK7GYO, Bill NN7K, Ray W7TAP, Ed KG7LYG, Ed KG7FNM, Van W7IEX, Rob KA6JLT, Chris AF7MP, Roger AC7IP, Voz KB7VT, and Ed WD7Y.

After introductions

Ray gave a talk about his antenna construction and problems he solved. At the end he had a question asking why his antenna analyzer won’t show a low SWR. There were some answers for him from the group. My suggestion was to put it on the air, at the next NET to see how it works before making any changes. If it’s not broke don’t fix it. 

Ralph Covington W7SK is now living at Northern Nevada Veteran’s Home in Sparks,

Ralphs hopes to get on the NET sometime soon. 

The next slow speed CW NET on Thursday Sept. 22 at 10 AM on 7.045 MHZ 

Rob showed his new FT-65 HT he had won at the flee market, very nice Rob.

Vos handed out an Oakman Pocket Ref book that anyone could have.

Also for free a Kenwood TS 930 if you would like it contact Voz KB7VT.

Ray had for show his new MFJ-941E tuner, he is now using on newly constructed antenna. 

Last of all Ed WD7Y announced that he is now the owner of a Elecraft K4D Transceiver it had arrived just last Saturday. He said that there is a large learning curve but plans to chase some SOTA’s this Wednesday. 

Ed also said that he will be selling his K3 and P3, he would like to sell it locally before putting it on the WEB to avoid shipping.  He will consider any reasonable offer. 

As usual there were good conversations going around the table, also the food was good.

Hope to see you all next month.
