The minutes mention that testing is cancelled until further notice. That's how things were when the meeting took place. However, testing will be done now by appointment. Contact Jon, N0OFJ, for details. That info has been updated at k0si.net as well.

Corey Mesenbrink, KC0YNS, passed away Thursday night, 5/28 2020 at
his home. It was an accident in the home.

Most of you on this list would have known Corey, or talked with
him on the radio. In the past year he was on DMR, BYRG, all the
time, but before he temporarily lost access to his massive Shack,
you heard him on many of the local repeaters, and faithfully
delivering traffic on 3.963 MHz. He had a large complement of ham
radios and antennas at his home near Hallsville. I called it RF Hill.

His email signature block read:

DTS. Digital Traffic System

RRI Radio Relay International

Missouri Traffic Net 3.963

Assistant Emergency Coordinator BCARES

And he was all that and more. He enjoyed buying and selling radios
and gear, and attending hamfests when he was still able. He was
always ready to offer a piece from his “junk” boxes to any who
might need that piece. He enjoyed talking to people on the radio,
and DMR gave him that chance from his wheelchair in the house.

He was instrumental in both local radio clubs in Columbia serving
in several capacities for many years. He was an early adopter of
Winlink using it for his digital traffic role. He had several
linear amplifiers and didn’t believe much in QRP. He liked to have
his 75M dipole good and resonant at 3.963 MHz, and insisted that
K0PHP and I shorten the wires by 6 inches just last Saturday
(5/23/20) to make him happy when he dumped his 1 KW amplifier on
it. Guess that won’t happen now.

Rest in peace, my friend,

Bill N0AXZ

update on Corey

Bob Jett
 

Just talked to his sister and there will not be a service for him at this time and he will be

cremated. They don't know if he had a heart attack and fell out of his chair then hit his head or

what happened for sure.

Corey was a great ham and helpful to all. He is already missed. I hope that an outdoor service is held so we can all show up and pay our respects safely. If not, I will certainly do it privately later.

My fond thoughts of Corey include the fact that he was very knowledgeable HAM, and a smart trader of all things radio, with a garage and shed full of radio stuff to prove it. His wonderful (and spacious) radio shack that would fit 10-15 guys, to talk about radio, guns, and what ever topic came up; I think we solved the world's problems a couple of times. Finally, Corey was a generous person. One time we were talking about antenna building, in his radio shack. I mentioned that I was needing a SO-239 Coax connector. In the middle of our discussion, Corey wheeled over to one of his many bins, pulled out one and threw it to me - no charge!

Hello to our VEs,

I am proposing to offer testing this month in the parking lot for my office at 914 N.

The test session will be held outdoors for now.  Chris K0PHP has offered to supply a tent and tables and chairs that are easily wiped down, along with suitable spray sanitizer and paper towels.  I will prepare packages for testing ahead of time and safely file/mail the paperwork afterwards.  I will try to bring some bottles of hand sanitizer, but highly recommend that you bring some as well.  Masks will be required for all people attending and disposable gloves are recommended to cut down on seriously drying out the skin on your hands.  There is a dumpster in the parking lot for disposing of used items on-site.

If you are a VE and are willing to participate in a test session based on the previously distributed guidelines and the above addendum, please let me know so that I can contact some of the people in our backlog and set up some appointments.  If you have suggestions, let me know as well.  If this session goes well, we can schedule other dates and times to try to work our way through the backlog of interest.

Ok. We have enough VEs. I am going to sign up four people to take the exam. I’ll send them emails tomorrow to get things going and sort the exam materials over the weekend.

Hello to our VEs,

I am proposing to offer testing this month in the parking lot for my office at 914 N. College Avenue, Columbia, on our usual third Tuesday at 7:00 PM.  This will be an outdoor test session offered by reservation only.  I expect to open it to only three people the first time so that we can work the kinks out.  I am proposing that we offer the tests only if the Boone County Health Department is currently authorizing groups of 10 or more.  If they clamp down on meetings/group sizes, we automatically cancel. 

The test session will be held outdoors for now.  Chris K0PHP has offered to supply a tent and tables and chairs that are easily wiped down, along with suitable spray sanitizer and paper towels.  I will prepare packages for testing ahead of time and safely file/mail the paperwork afterwards.  I will try to bring some bottles of hand sanitizer, but highly recommend that you bring some as well.  Masks will be required for all people attending and disposable gloves are recommended to cut down on seriously drying out the skin on your hands.  There is a dumpster in the parking lot for disposing of used items on-site.

If you are a VE and are willing to participate in a test session based on the previously distributed guidelines and the above addendum, please let me know so that I can contact some of the people in our backlog and set up some appointments.  If you have suggestions, let me know as well.  If this session goes well, we can schedule other dates and times to try to work our way through the backlog of interest.

Thanks!
