* CLUB MEETING:  Tuesday October 5th at 7:00 pm (TBD/Club station)
* ANTENNA INSPECTION:  Saturday 9:30 am at the club station
* TS JEANNE REPORT
* STATION NIGHT THURSDAYS 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We had the last meeting a week late so the next meeting comes around a bit
earlier so it seems!  The meeting is planned for Tuesday October 5th at
7:00 pm.  Meet at the club station if you don't hear otherwise.


ANTENNA INSPECTION:  Saturday 9:30 at D11-27 Dental Bldg  (Club station)

After two tropical storms, the antennas on the Dental Building rooftop may
have experienced some damage.  PPD did some repairs to their equipment
after Frances, and the EMWIN antenna was repaired as well.  But, we have
yet to inspect up on the roof following Jeanne.

The antenna inspection will just be a rooftop visit and lookaround.  We
can check the coax feedlines and the SWR for all the antennas to make sure
everything still works ok.

If time allows, we can put the G5RV back up.  There is also a 6-meter
Ringo antenna that could be assembled and installed.  And finally we might
take a look at the satellite array (UHF/VHF oscar antennas) and see if
they work or can be salvaged or if it would be worthwhile to do so.


TS JEANNE REPORT:

The weather station reported that the maximum wind speed was 75 mph on
Sunday 9/26/2004 at 4:19 PM.  Pressure dropped to 982.8 mb on Sunday at
8:39 pm.  The 8PM report from the National Weather Service put the storm
30 miles SW of Gainesville with a minimum pressure of 978 mb.  The physics
weather station recorded 29.08" between 7pm and 9pm with a minimum reading
of 29.06" which equals 984 mb.  Monday the highest gust recorded was 58
mph.

Again the roof inside the station leaked, but thanks to Rhett and Amy, a
bucket was placed under the leak and emptied frequently to prevent any
damage caused by minor flooding.  Other parts of the Dental Building
leaked too, especially near the elevators.  The new window did not leak,
but provided an interesting vantage point to observe how well the antennas
held up and the turbulent winds produced along the building.  Sometimes
the rain move sideways, othertimes it was blown vertically over the roof.
No wonder the rain gauge only measured about 3.5" of rain.

Thanks to GARC operators KE4VEM, KI4FWX, KI4FWY, KI4CVJ, for assisting at
shelters and at the W4DFU station during the emergency.  Also WA4FOX
operated with me at the Alachua County Emergency Operations Center running
net control as N4QYS.  Additional operators volunteered for standby duty
but were not needed as the positions were not activated.  In total, GARC
put in about 200 hours of volunteer radio communications service over the
course of 3 days.

STATION NIGHT EVERY THURSDAY 7-10 pm

As GARC has done in the past, the regular "THURSDAY NIGHT STATION NIGHT"
will continue this semester.  This is the one evening a week that the
station will be open so that if you do not have a key, or if you are not
familiar with operating the equipment, you can come by and learn how to do
so.

The station night is also a time to work on special projects, conduct
repairs, inspect equipment, check the mail, and other miscellaneous
activities.

The APRS DIGI is still not configured properly and is not digipeating.
If anyone has expertise with packet or APRS digipeaters, the club could
use your help in getting the APRS DIGI functioning properly.
