  1. Approval of minutes from last meeting

Minutes will be approved at the next regular meeting.

  1. General Manager’s Report

Kells reported that the station has installed a new internet service with the help of the Alaska Public Broadcasting Commission’s Discretionary Fund.  Will Johnson flew from Fairbanks in mid July to do the installation.  The new internet service is ten to twelve times faster than the more expensive internet service with TelAlaska currently used by the station.

 

The station was awarded a thirty five hundred dollar Management Assistance grant by the Rasmuson Foundation in Anchorage.  This is a reimbursable grant for the station to bring a woman from the Foraker Group to Sand Point to work on QuickBooks with Shannon and Kells.  The Board is welcome to participate in the financial training.

 

Engineers Chuck Lakaytis and Gray Hartig and Dillingham General Manager Rob Carpenter are finally moving forward with the King Cove FM radio translator license transfer.   Gray and Chuck are filing the paperwork through Larry Miller, an FCC attorney in Washington, D.C., to register the new location of the radio translator with the FCC.  The Dillingham School Board will officially approve the license transfer at its August meeting.  When KSDP has the approval, it will move forward on the engineering visit needed to make the translator upgrade a reality.

 

The tower light situation will be rectified when Justin Godbehere installs the part that needs to be replaced at the transmitter site.  This should start the top light flashing again.

 

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting is about to rule on our rural bonus grant application check here.  CPB is moving very slowly on this.

 

Kells reported a major grant opportunity with the Alaska Public Broadcasting Capital Grant – Round Six – Program.  Last year, the program provided KSDP funding for a comprehensive studio renovation.  The station is in the final stages of its grant reporting for the project.  When complete, the station will receive about eight thousand dollars more from the grant award.

 

  1. Old Business

There was no Old Business

 

  1. New business

a)      Mary Olsen and Austin Roof were sworn in as KSDP Board members.

b)      Kells updated the Board on the Merrill Lynch account.

c)      The Board looked at the ventilation system proposal.  They want more information on the subject.  They also recommended that the project be made part of a grant application.

d)     The Board wants more budget details for the King Cove translator upgrade and for the replacement of the ground system in Sand Point.

  1. Public Comments and Discussion

During Kells’ General Manager Report, Jim Brown asked how much longer until the translator in King Cove is transferred to KSDP.  Kells responded saying that we should have it by October, and said Dillingham is making it a very lengthy process.

 

Mary wants monthly statements of the station’s bank accounts and asked if the station had thought of moving its account to an Alaska bank.  Kells responded saying, Shannon and he would research local banks.  Jim Brown would also like board meeting packets sent to each member a few days before the meeting.  Austin Roof asked about funding a scholarship program.  The scholarship would be for a college or vocational school bound student.

 

The Board would also like to see more local programming, such as: live and recorded programs, Silver Salmon Derby coverage, Culture Camp reports, and more field reporting.

 

 

 

  1. Adjournment

The Board will next meet on September 9, 2010 at 7:00 p.m.   Jim adjourned the meeting at 8:30 p.m.

Kells reported on the installation of the new studio furniture, as well as other improvements taking place as part of the major renovation.  He mentioned a few minor completions.  The new mic booms require side mounts in order to slide down (the part has been ordered).  The lower step in the on-air studio must be removed and the new radio console in the production studio must be hooked up to the telephone hybrid for interviews.

 

The transmitter site has been cleared of wood, rusted cables and assorted debris that were scattered around.

 

KSDP has started to receive payments from NOAA for its tower lease.

 

The tower light has not been working properly due to a piece of blown electrical equipment located in the tower shack.  The part has been ordered.

 

The station has been awarded $50,000.00 in the state capital budget.  The grant will be used to replace the ground system at the transmitter site, as well as to renovate the FM radio translator in King Cove.

 

During the last Board meeting, a transfer agreement prepared by FCC attorney Larry Miller was signed.  The agreement was sent to Dillingham.  Dillingham wants a four thousand dollar payment for the transfer.
