Discussed the Kenai Peninsula Hamfest. Attendance was down from last year, but we did end up with a small positive balance.

Good turnout at the annual club picnic. Thanks to Vic and Joan for being such gracious hosts.

The Nome amateur radio club will be supplying us with a Pactor III modem for Winlink operation. It will be installed at the Soldotna EOC station. The modem will be on “permanent loan” from the Nome club.

No one had researched possible club call-signs. Please come to the September meeting with suggestions so we can continue the discussion.

The ARRL Section Emergency Test (SET) is coming up October 11th. More information to follow.
