Salina was more organized than last year and had the usual number of bargains.
Camp Hawk, we are getting a climate controlled cabinet that will set up outside the main building. It will be larger than the current cabinet and we will hopefully have enough room to put the fusion repeater and get a local HF repeater unconnected to K-Link. Should be installed in September sometime. Stan mentioned on checking on the rails due to the depth of the fusion repeater.
MCC bike ride - 6 Sags will be staffed and volunteers will be requested at the Sept. 19th meeting. Maps should be available and will be sent out before the next meeting.
Notes on support for rides. We need to be using our call signs after each transmission for our Sags. Net control and Sags need to identify every 10 minutes. And Net control needs to identify events every 10 minutes.
