Solicitation to Fill CMRA Member at Large Position

John W. Smith
 

With the passing of Corey, KC0YNS/SK, CMRA needs to fill the remainder
of the current term for the Member at Large position. This is a two year
term, good through January of 2022.

Below is the relevant information about this position, excerpted  from
the club's bylaws, point 5.

"Executive Committee. The Executive Committee shall consist of the
officers, the immediate past President and one member elected from the
rest of the membership. The last member will serve a term of two years.
The Executive Committee will conduct the affairs of the Association
between business meetings...All actions of the Executive Committee shall
be reported at the next meeting for action by members."

According to the club's constitution, Article II: Officers, Section 3,
"Vacancies occurring between elections shall be filled at a special
election held at the first regular meeting following occurrence of the
vacancy."

With this in mind, we are asking for interested Member at Large
candidates to come forward before our August 11th meeting. Contact club
president, Brian, AD0UK, by sending an e-mail to k0si@arrl.net . Let him
know if you have questions or are interested in filling the remainder of
the Member at Large term.

Thanks for your participation to keep the CMRA moving forward.

73,

John, KC0HSB
Corresponding Secretary

We had a pretty good day last Saturday, but there is still a lot of stuff you might want to buy. Any body want to buy a crank up tower and BIG beam?

We will probably be there until the afternoon, so stop by and pick up something you can't be without...

There was some talk about an antenna tower trailer.  Would Cory's tower work for that?  Perhaps mounted on a Harbor freight trailer?  What is the collapsed length of the tower?  Just thinking.

Group,
The Estate is offering the sale of Corey's amateur radio equipment to the club members first on this coming Saturday, at 9:00 at his house. 

Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines, we are asking that you wear masks, and observe the one-wavelength at 144 Mhz distancing. We have not moved any equipment, so you will find it where Corey last used it, primarily in his shack/garage. This is not a big room, so we will restrict entry to 6  people at a time. Attached is a sheet showing many, but not all, of the things you will find there. With the help of K0PHP, there is an estimated value of each item given. These values are not totally firm, but we want to be fair to the estate. 
Not listed are the towers and antennas you will see outside. They are still in the air at this time, and disassembly has not yet been planned. 

Hope to see you there, Saturday 7/11/2020.

It’s not an auction. Equipment is on benches as Corey lay used them and I guess it is first come first serve. We have published to this list approximate values of some of the equipment based on recent QRZ.COM sales.
