In attendance: Bob Lucas, John Lusk, Eldon Kearl, Craig Thomas, Allan Eborn, Steve Nate, John Carter, Ken Yellen, Shirley Rex, Keven and Jocelyn Nield and visitors, Pam Harmon and Jake Walker.
The March 17th Tech class was announced. Bob passed around an interest survey.
Shirley told us about a 100 mile foot race on June 1st and 2nd around Pocatello. It will start on Friday afternoon. It is called a smut race. They need radio check points through the night. It is a very well organized race. If there are operators interested, the race official will come down and talk to us. Not much interested was shown initially.
We discussed having an arrow antennae building meeting, possibly in April.
Eldon reported on a recent Search and Rescue exercise. Keven mentioned that we have problems with Search and Rescue when we just show up. He felt it would be much better to be well trained and then give them a list of hams they could call on if needed.
Allan explained Ares and Races to our visitors.
Bob talked about the multiband go kit for use by the club members, especially for new hams. Bob suggested getting a Buddy Pole. Eldon discussed using a less expensive option.
Bob showed us a power point presentation on preparing go kits.
