Meeting of the KBOO Board of Directors, 2010/05/13&14 - Executive Committee


KBOO Board Executive Committee Meetings Minutes
May 13, 2010 and May 14, 2010
The Executive Committee—Becky Chiao, Erin Brand and Nia Lewis  met in person on May 13 and by phone on May 14 to respond to a request to purchase new equipment to replace a broken remote transmitter sensor.
The request came via Louis Sowa the board’s liaison to Engineering.  He described the problem to us in which a particular monitor on the transmitter was failing, causing two outages in the prior week.
We were informed that the sensor/monitor is required by the FCC to ensure that KBOO is transmitting on the right frequency.
On May 13, we decided we needed more information and requested something in writing from the engineer John Mackey.
John provided us with an email that listed the parts required for the repairs and the costs.  He said that he will order the parts on Monday May 10.
The Executive Committee then met by phone and voted to approve spending $6,500 on the replacement equipment.
