President Brett, K9BY, called the meeting to order at 7:03pm.    Attendance was 18.   Introductions were made.   The question of the evening was:  Have you constructed anything recently??   Five attendees have.     Minutes of the April 4, 2016 meeting were presented by Secretary, Carl, W9BJ.   Al, KC9QQO, presented theTreasurers Report.  
 
Old Business:  Greg, K9GJN, Field Day Chairman, led a discussion on Field Day preparations.   More volunteers are encouraged.  A complete outline is shown on our BARC Website under Field Day.    Carl, W9BJ, showed our new Band Pass Filters for 80, 40, and 20 meter bands; they are rated 200 Watts and reduce transmitter phase noise.   We also have the five 80-10 Meter Filters used from last year.  The damaged filter has been repaired.   Bills were paid.
 
A discussion was held on laminated signs; also a safety sign.
 
AL, KC9QQO, discussed a new opportunity to assist a Bike Ride in Rock County with communications on Saturday, June 18.  Volunteers are needed for the 2 meter operation.  More details at the June 6th meeting.   We will not be assisting the Tub Run this year.
 
New Business: Don Forsum?, KC9ITH?, a new amateur, asked about his new transceiver, a Galaxy brand.   It was determined to be a deluxe CB rig, 11 meters, with a number of addition fixed channels on the low end of 10 meters. He doesn't receive signals, only noise.   He needs a good antenna for operation. 
 
Program: A 50-50 Raffle was won by Brett, K9BY.
