New Business:


Larry Reese, WB5RTT, wanted the four tower sections and guy wire removed from his barn. Wade, W5TEN picked up the sections and we will store the sections in Carl H. barn after the meeting.


The County has purchased three Rohn 45 tower sections and associated guy wires. They will be delivered to the Courthouse next week. The Club is scheduled to install the tower on Saturday February 23rd at 9 AM. All of those who can help please come the Courthouse in Bellville Saturday morning.


The LAPC meeting for the county was held last week. The Command Post vehicle was discussed and the radios for it have been ordered. The Club has volunteered to install the radios and antennas in the Command Post when they arrive.


The meeting was adjourned at 1955 hours.
