repeater. The situation has tentatively been resolved. Paperwork is
expected to come to WPRC and will be copied directly to the Trustee from WPRC.

Those gathered discussed splits on 6 meter repeaters.

WA3ERT requested clarification on length of time for coordination. N3EJY
explained and gave him a copy of the coordination policies. It was noted
that these policies will be sent out in the next newsletter. It was also
noted that these policies are available on the WPRC Web Page.

The availability of propagation reports was discussed and it was noted that
the problem is in printing out the reports because of the detail.

WA3PBD asked about the availability of 10 meter frequencies in our area.

the process of coordination.

The next meeting will be the Annual Meeting on October 15, 2000 and will be
