Moved to adopt as correct by VE7LOC, seconded by VE7KFR. VE7LOC gave a report on the estate sale of “silent” member Andy Tibben's radio equipment. (Mr. Tibbens wife had asked the club help her sort out his equipment and help her sell it. Pretty much everything has been done there and Mrs. Tibben thanked VE7LOC and VE7NEK for their assistance, and she told VE7LOC that she has sold the property and she will be moving once everything is settled.
Sick or injured members (or spouse): VE7NEKs wife is still out of action but he reports she is steadily improving, her spirits are high and he is confident she will be home soon.
New business: Repeaters; VE7LOC gave an update on the new repeater project. The new Baker repeater is up and running at the home of VE7CRX, on an interim basis for “burn in” to make sure there will be no issues when it is installed on the mountain top. Assembly of the new Creston repeater is progressing and when completed it too will run in the shop of VE7KPB for it's “burn in”. Both repeaters will be installed in it's respective mountain once the weather allows us to get the the mountain tops.
