Board Election
The slate of candidates for the board was presented by Chris Demisch, KB1QXR, at the last club meeting. The club vote was unanimous for the slate, which consisted of the officers and positions listed at the beginning of this document.

VE Testing
Ernest will set up a quarterly VE testing schedule, with tests in early March, early June, September, and December. We may have an influx of NBC Sport engineers taking tests: Tim Canary, KD2HSC, VP Engineering at NBC Sports, is strongly encouraging that the engineers that report to him obtain their ham radio licenses. This is causing a critical mass of interest at NBC Sports, and other personnel are starting to take an interest.


The Connecticut State Police Radio Club has loaned us a DMR repeater, and installed it for us at the Sterling Farms site. It is available on our allocated 440MHz channel. There is considerable interest in DMR among club members. Although we can’t keep this repeater forever, its replacement cost would be about $1800 (for which we might solicit donations), and the State Police Club will install any repeater that we buy.

The DMR repeater current covers north to North Stamford and New Canaan, west to exits 4-5 on I-95 and exit 31 on the Merritt, and east to Bridgeport and Westport, as well as all of downtown Stamford. Still no response from Stamford Hospital regarding moving our repeater there to the new tower.

Trustee Changeover
Ernest is executing the paperwork to transfer the club call trusteeship to Steve Urso.

VE Testing
We’re working on an updated list of directions to the Government Center. Some people testing with us have had trouble finding it or approaching it.
Tim Canary at NBC has discussed possibly holding VE exams at their facility in Stamford.
