Meeting Bullets:
  The meeting convened at 7:05 pm.  The Secretary and Treasurer were absent.  Their reports will be presented next month.
  President Thomas reported on the EMA Preparedness Expo he and other club members attended in Orange Beach. Many people visited the BCARC booth and signed up for our email list. He noted that many ham operators were unaware of the existence of our club and asked members to continue spreading the word.
  President Thomas reported spending $152.00 for new batteries and a backup power switching device for the repeater link. This exhausted the maintenance budget for the repeater.
  Ray Sturch gave a detailed presentation on the upcoming Simulated Emergency Test. A full schedule of activities as well as new procedures and forms were presented.

Other News:        
     In a Friday email Ron Thomas reported a successful install of the new batteries and backup power charger/switch at the repeater link site.  He said the main repeater backup power system will be evaluated as well and may also be in need of an update.

Editorial:
   
 We had a well attended May meeting with the main emphasis being the Simulated Emergency Test.  The SET is IMPORTANT and I encourage all members to participate in it.  Ray Sturch is still short on volunteers as he prepares the final assignments so please contact him today if you can participate.  His email is:  rayandlinda@mchsi.com and phone number is: (251) 776-0844.

See you all next month.
