1. A HUGE Thank You goes out to one of the incredible members of our Club. Jim Klein, K7RDX, made a very generous donation of $75 to our treasury recently. We thank him so very much for this act, while not forgetting the tons of work he does to keep things running and helping with equipment repair/overhauls, etc. Your club is so grateful, Jim.

3. The annotated List of Repeaters from Joel K7ZR was updated 9/7. Look for it at the bottom of this page.
5. The winner of the Apache 1800 box on Sept 12 was Danny, K7ISC.
6. The club has restarted the Monday Lunches at the local ABBY's on 5th and Western at about 11:45-ish. The establishment is rearranged to sit 4 at a table, no salad bar but you can order a salad, no dispenser drinks, but bottles available. Not quite back to normal yet but on the way. Come on by, it's a bit strange but better than isolation.
7. License Testing was accomplished on the evening of September 16th. VEC Skip KE7MPO, VE Jex K7JEW, and VE Ron K7VP presided over the session as five candidates took tests. The result was we now have 1 new Tech, 2 new Generals, and 2 new Extras to add to the total. Three of the five new licensees declined any publicity here, so we will comply with their wishes. Pictures below of the other two folks. In any case, congratulations to them and thanks to the VE team, one more time.

Click HERE to read about the tinySA
from Jim Alyn N7JA
His description, experience, and analysis of the equipment starts thus:
"For the past several months, I have been beta testing the tinySA, that is, the tiny Spectrum Analyzer.
If you’re familiar with the NanoVNA, the tinySA is exactly the same size, approximately 3.5 inches by 2.2 inches, with ascreensize of 2.8 inches. The tinySA has two bands, one from basically DC to 350 MHz. The second band covers from 240 MHz to 960 MHz. The second band is basically extra functionality thrown in for free, and doesn’t have the same performance as the lower band."
