The meeting was well attended starting at 7:33 PM after setting up for our presentation.  Treasurer Dave N6LHL reported after paying bills, the treasury stands at $5061.00 .  He reported that the Kenwood TM-731 donated to the club had been sold.  

John NZ6Q and Paul N6KZW reported on the development of a club "Net Control Station in a Box" and the membership authorized spending up to $900 to bring the kit together.  

Charlie WB6NVB reported on Field Day and the club would be placing a bulk order for Field Shirts at the May Meeting. 

Bob K6DGQ reported on an article in the latest QST discussing practical operating tips for Public Service Events.  He suggested that a presentation might be a good meeting topic in the future.  

Jason KJ6JR gave a presentation of his experience assisting in the recovery of a weather balloon launched as part of pi-day activities at UC Berkeley on March 14th. This was a very interesting story and video enjoyed by everyone in attendance. 

Sign-up sheets were passed around for volunteers for the May 2nd March of Dimes Walk-a-Thon and the May 3rd Delta Century Bike Ride.

Located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains at 2500 feet, the club repeaters cover the Southern Sacramento and Northern San Joaquin Valleys. The call-sign is W6SF and can be heard on 147.165 MHz and on 442.250 MHz with a PL of 107.2 Hz. Club simplex frequency is 147.51 MHz.

SDARC also has a UHF repeater, operating independently, on 444.575+ PL 107.2.  This is a local low level Stockton repeater with the call W6SF.  As the project progresses, three receiver/voters will be installed via T1 phone lines and the addition of IRLP linking to other repeaters.  
TECH REP:  Steve - K6SCA
Coming Soon!

Plans are underway to install several voting receivers, strategically located on the 444.575 repeater (W6SF) in Stockton.  The addition of these receivers will sharply increase receive capability throughout Stockton and Lodi with the use of a hand held radio.  Check the repeater occasionally for the upgrade.
