Ron, KG6HSQ, reported that we had the best month for new club members in October. His update on the new 2m antenna for Red Mountain is that the manufacturer is still waiting for parts.

Bob, W6VR, offered that with 77 members, FARC is now ½ the size of the Palomar Amateur Radio Club. However, PARC at one time had close to 1,000 members.

Ron, KG6HSQ, provided an update on the Del Rey translator. It is back in operation, but is still having some interference problems.

Three new members joined us in the meeting: Mark KN6REF, Dennis KN6QJL and Bobby KN6PIL. We welcome them to the club. Members introduced themselves to the new members.

Ron, KG6HSQ, discussed the Fallbrook Christmas Parade coming up at 5:00 PM on December 4th. There are some new players in law enforcement this year in both the Sheriff’s Office and California Highway patrol. There are currently over 18 parade entries, but more are expected, including 3 bands. Ron described parade staging, the parade route and some of the FARC activities during the parade. Non-ham volunteers are needed and welcome. They should contact the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce at (760) 728-5845.

Ron, KG6HSQ, presented a tour of the features of the FARC website weather page.
