Lyndon-wa9jld gave us an update on the tower rebuild, hinge section should be done next week and then I can deliver it to Chucks-wd9bb QTH.     Brett-k9by thanked Lyndon-wa9jld for doing last month’s meeting.      Brett-k9by: Dean-k9flo did an e-mail letter to Debbie Rykowski at the Beloit Fire Dept last week and it was forward to the deputy chief have not received any response.     Dean-k9flo concurred we probably should look for a different location.    Dave-ak9f offered a Church location on Liberty Blvd in Beloit and is available for a visit by the board.  Brett-k9by it sounds good and if internet is available (Dave-ak9f yes 500mb) I can set up video for remote viewership.    Dave-ak9f contact me by e-mail or phone.       Brett-k9by is still waiting to hear from Denny’s reginal manager about doing Field Day at their location.     I will do a follow-up.      We do have the Janesville FD reserved.     Still no news on a new club call sign.     RACES:  Brett-k9by reached out to Danell-kd9rxb, she finally got the support from ARRL and meet with the State Section Manager.     He gave her information getting the ARES program up and running and she will be working that.     Also gave her information obtaining a club call sign and she found out the KB9UNX call sign may still be available.      Brett-k9by after she applies for a call sign then immediately apply for a vanity call sign KB9UNX.       She hopes to have everything going by the end of the year.
