B. Committee reports
1. Standing committees
b. Operations
On "B" Mtn., the set-top box for channel 4 appears to be locked up. President Cole received a call about a smoke or heat alarm at Laurel Mt. Like previous alarms, it merely turned out to be moths making their home in the sensor so more possible entry points were identified and plugged.
c. Publicity
Member Blazek has placed the Santa's Art Shop banners out to bid.
C. Old business
1. The "B" Mtn. channel 5 antenna height was corrected in the FCC's CDBS database. We are still waiting for the NTIA grant funds to be dispersed by direct deposit into our bank account. We are also waiting on paperwork for the digital translator conversions and the unclear invoice date on our Larcan trancoder order.
F. Closure
1. Next meeting: 5:00 PM, November 1, 2010, Vaughn Realty Meeting Room, Ridgecrest
2. Adjournment: There being no further business, President Cole adjourned the meeting at 6:02 pm.
