There was a discussion of band pass filters. Bill, K6KN, thought that YARS had made some up. He had great difficulty last year with digital communication and interference with the HF rigs.
Gary is working on a field day play to host Field Day either at the Davis Fire Station , or the UC Davis Airport.
Gary, WA6TQJ, noted that Dana Carey, has said that she'd be able to open the OES for nets. Gary is working with her to find out if ARES members could be granted access to the OES. There is a possibility that Several ARES members could become unpaid employees for Yolo County and thus granted access. This model is used in Sacramento.
Bill, K6KN, presented a Treasury report. Currently we have $555.04.
Several corrections to the dues report were given to Bill.
