SWAPMEET:

BAW FAW REPEATER:
Eugene and Mike Payne recently went to the repeater site. The antenna was rewired to use 1 antenna for both transmit and receive. That did not fix the problem with weak received signals being repeated with a high noise level. A similar problem has been observed with the 6-meter (52.930 MHz) repeater that is also on Baw Faw peak.

ADDITIONAL BUSINESS:
Eugene expressed, without discent, the opinion that CVARS should go ahead with registering as a 501(c)(3) non-profit separate from the ARRL.
