APRIL CLUB MEETING REPORT

The April 2018 meeting was held at our new location at the Amblers Club off Country Club Blvd in West Stockton.  After a meet-n-greet opportunity to check out the new site, the meeting started at 7:30 PM with President John NZ6Q asking for members and guests to introduce themselves by name and callsign. 

Treasurer Report: Paul KC6RRR reported the roster now stands at 64 paid and family members.  There was a discussion on weed-whacking at the repeater site and the majority voted to go up to the site this year.  (This date is Saturday May 5th) Several members offered weed-whackers and Robert N6GTO offered to donate hamburgers for a Bar-B-Que after the work was completed.  

Event Committee:  Ed N6XMA and Mark W6SXA reviewed assignments for the upcoming March for Babies and Moms coming on April 21st.  A list was distributed for this event and the Delta Century Bike Ride on May 6th. 

Upcoming Events:  The Lodi Amateur Radio Club will be hosting a mobile radio Cruise In and swap meet on April 28th at the McDonalds on Lower Sacramento Rd and Kettleman Lane.  
Ed N6XMA reported that the organizers of the 4th of July parade in Stockton had a meeting but there was nothing new to report. 


Field Day:  Dave N6LHL gave a short report on Field Day at the Beach Club in Lincoln Village West.  There would $2.00 per person per day use fee but that the manager was not opposed to letting us use the facility and store equipment overnight in their facility.

John NZ6Q and Mark W6SXA lead an interesting discussion on simple atennas and how dipoles are the basic building blocks for most antennas.  


Because of the late ending of the meeting, no raffle was held. 


The meeting concluded at 8:45PM.
