Meeting Minutes from OCTOBER 20, 2022

I.  Call to order at 6:15 by Olga Martin-Steele  

Board Members Present: Roberta Actor, Dennis Booth, Ron Green, Linda Kelly, Susan Krones, Scott Miller, John Moorhead, Martin Scheel  

General Manager:  Andy Weiss was present on phone

Guests:  Betsy Cawn, Dwain Goforth, Ariel Carmona, Alan Fletcher, Chloe Karl, Stacy Maisenbach, Paula Mune, Scott Nuttal, John Saare

This meeting was conducted via ZOOM due to COVID-19 Emergency   

II. Public Input:  None 

III. Approval of Minutes – The minutes from the last regular meeting in September will be prepared for next month’s meeting.     

IV. Treasurer’s Report – See written report by Roberta Actor.  Our starting balance for September was $17,843.57 and the ending balance is $19,972.62.  Our phone bill starting next month should be a lot less as we have switched our phone service.  The Newsletter brought in a good amount of money.  We are now using Square to take in donations so our credit card fees should be reduced in the future.  Regarding our tax status, Roberta is working on waivers of penalties for late filings in 2018 and 2019. 

V. General Manager’s Report – Weiss reported. a. Andy said the unit on the roof keeps turning itself off and thus shutting down the station.  This could be due to overheating or some other reason.  It seems to fail in very hot weather.  It is an old unit so we may have to replace it.  Previously we had authorized up to $10,000 to repair or replace the STL.  Andy says that the cost should be about $7,000 but we will need to pay a fee to reapply for the license. Actor made a motion that Weiss, Saare and Bill work on upgrading the license for the STL and will report back next meeting.  In the meantime, they will also work on a temporary fix.  Green 2nd.  Passes.  

VI. Committee Reports:  

a. Program Committee – a.   Karl reported that she talked to Tina Scott about doing a cooking show.  This is still in the early stages.  We have other new shows in the works.  She reminded everyone that programmers cannot promote their own business on their show. b. Alan Fletcher is still trying to get zoom up and running during broadcasts.  This may require the station to be off the air for a short time period.  Weiss will coordinate with Fletcher as to when this will be done.  

b. Underwriting – Kelly reported that Thai American Market will renew their underwriting support.                  

c. IT Report – John Saare said he will work with Weiss to address our ongoing technical issues.     

d. Website:  Alan Fletcher reported that the website was working fine.

e. Executive Committee: Martin-Steele reported said the committee is working on a development and succession plan for the station.  Part of the plan is to get younger people involved with the station and maybe coordinate with Mendocino College students to get involved.  

VII. Old Business: a. Moonalice concert - Ron Green reported that the concert’s net proceeds were $6,253.00.  The next concert is Roy Zimmerman on October 29, 2022.  b. Station Security System – Moorhead reported he is working on this and is still compiling a Programmer contact list.  

VIII. New Business: a. New Board Members – Stacy Maisenbach has applied to be on the Board.  Actor nominated her for the Board.  Scheel 2nd.  Passes.  b. Scheel submitted his letter of resignation from the Board at the end of 2022.  Kelly also submitted her letter of resignation as she is moving out of state in the next few months.  

Next Meeting will be Thursday, 11/17/22 @ 6:15 pm via Zoom.

LCCR (KPFZ) Board Meeting  Nov 17,2022 -- Web and other Reports
Alan Fletcher  11/17/22

1. Web: All working fine, except for the contact list.

At present queries on the contact list are sent to a "functional" email, like board@kpfz.org, and then forwarded in our mail system to individuals.  Becuse of spam-blocking, our email kpfz.org is no longer allowing new forwards to individuals on google, yahoo .. etc  (Old ones still work)

I therefore have to change the contact list to add real people, AND update it for the new board members and responsibilities.

2. FCC : mid quarter, so no action.  

I'll do the end-December filing and set up 2023-Q1.  We need to decide if KPFZ wants to go on using the online system.  If so, it needs some enhancements and a port to the KPFZ website.  I'll do this as a low-priority project to be ready for 2023-Q2.

3. KBO Computer and Zoom

This is now open for business.  See the announcement on the front page.  The documentraion is "good enough for now", including a series of videos.  I am still fine-tuning it. 

4. KBO Computer Remote Accesss

I have been accessing it with RemotePC on my personal account, which expires on Nov 22.  I have requested that KPFZ open a new account (essentially the same functionality as Teamviewer, but much cheaper).

5. KBO, digital media and CD problems.

Our CD players are dying, and replacement models are $500. I suggest we deploy the CD on the KBO computer, and maybe add another one.  I'll work with David Lark on this one. Then I'll update the document how to use media off the KBO computer.

6. Studio and/or Stream Shutdown.

It turns out that one output of the board (Audition) wasn't being used, so I can do all my tests during a replay. 
We might need level adjustments on the board, but it's OK for now (a little hum and buzz on zoom, but I don't think it's audible).

7. Webmaster Documentation.

I'll update the existing documentation, and make a couple of videos.  

8. Schedule System (in Drupal)

I'm going to make some changes and then I'll document it and hand it over.  

9.  Wordweavers Producer and Hosts

I haven't been able to fill these open slots.  I have a couple of leads on a replacement for Carolyn Hawley's show.
