Toby was unable to attend the meeting, but Bob, N4Cu talked to Toby on the phone and everything checked out. Report passed.
Bob W5RE, as of now everything is operational, but there are talks of going up the tower soon and observing the possible damage done to the noise suppression kit on the beacon. It was also determined that we did not need a new battery for the repeater, as the current working one should be able to keep the repeater operational for a week. April or May will be the general date of inspection.

Report on Triple B Event by Bob KI4MEU, great participation and even more people came out to provide communications than expected. Observations and other comments were provided for next time.
