A brief repeater report was presented by Bob N4CU. On 4 June 2011, the new 1.2GHz D-Star antenna was installed. A good turnout for this installation was reported.
The station report was presented by Richard W4RLR. All of the station is ready for Field Day, with the exception of the logging software. N1MM will need to have the latest version installed, and all county lists be up to date. It was decided this should be done before June 23rd, due to the tech night subject being on N1MM. All computers that will be used for Field Day also need to be networked together before this date, to ensure they will all talk to each other.
The report was presented by Ron KI5FR. He had very little to report, but there is some talk of getting another training class together soon.
There was no website report presented.
