Hello All,
I have to say that the last SARC meeting was one of the most informative and interesting club meetings I have attended. 
John's (W6NBC) presentation of W4MQ's Remote Internet Base software really got me motivated for several reasons.  I went home and dowloaded the RIB software and connected to several publicly open stations here on the west coast.  Using the software was easy and I could listen to the Sunday afternoon 40 Meter Swap Net from my laptop, pretty cool.
The other motivating reason was the potential of participating in the weekly 1296Mhz SSB/CW nets.  The location of the RIB would enable many statewide 1296MHz contacts. From the presentation, I understood that the RIB station does not have 1296MHz capabilities, so I make the following proposal to the club board and station manager(s):
I would like to offer the RIB station, the use of my homebrew solidstate 1296MHz 60W all-mode amplifier and a 24 element M2 yagi antenna.
The amplifier requires ~10amps at 13.8VDC.
