Treasurer’s report:
OUFCU balances: Checking $514.49, savings $10.11.
2012-2013 dues for W5TC are $15.00, payable by cash or check made out to W5TC. Payment of dues gives access to club’s equipment and (with training) the NWC shack, and also funds future equipment purchases with club approval.

Gary S., WB5ULK, trustee of the WX5NWC club, introduced attendees to NWC 6006, where WX5NWC and W5TC’s rigs are housed. Club members must be licensed and trained before they are allowed access to this room.

Once all the club officers are trained, training of club members will proceed on a by-request basis.

Need a license? Here is a link to information about local VE testing. A few copies of the study guides for the technician, general, and extra class exams are available in the NWC library and in the W5TC cabinet on the obs. deck. Contact a club officer regarding the latter.

Meeting adjourned at 7:45 p.m.
W5TC’s next meeting: 23 October 2012, location TBA. (Watch this site for updates!)
