 +**BV Open studios**

 + 
 +Russ C passed on thanks for those who helped with the clean-up evening. Many bags of dirt and layers of filth were removed. 
 + 
 + 
 + 
 + 
 +**Disposal of Oscilloscopes** 
 + 
 +TG: we have too many scopes, both duplicating abilities and some defective 
 + 
 +TS: happy to take TG's advice about which units to keep / dispose. 
 + 
 +All: agreed to give members a couple of weeks to express interest before moving to disposal. 
 + 
 +What if people want the same scope? 
 + 
 +TG: first come first served 
 + 
 +EG: lottery for popular items 
 + 
 + 
 +Proposed to keep: 
 +  Tektronix 2245: newly acquired, highest performance,​ 4 channel 100MHz. Nice, but probably needs preventative recapping. 
 +  Agilent 54621: our only DSO, people use it, 60MHz 
 +  Telequipment DM63: rare dual beam, analogue storage, 35MHz 
 +  Kenwood CS4125: small, easy to use, excellent beginners scope, only 20MHz 
 +  Topward 7042: see the Kenwood 
 +  Metrotest OX802: sensitive, see the Kenwood. N.B. not ours - on loan 
 +   
 +Propose we dispose of these either to members or to recycle: 
 +  Schlumberger 5602.C: functional, but remarkably horrible (designed by a software engineer, not a hardware engineer!), 100MHz. If we can't find a masochistic member, take it to the tip. 
 +  Gould OS300: functional, not wonderful. Suitable for a member to use. 
 +  Hameg HM203: functional but completely unremarkable,​ slightly strange controls. Suitable for a member to use. 
 +  Wavetek 9020: functional but poor. Suitable for a member to repair 
 +  Tek TDS340: only virtue is 100MHz on some ranges of one channel; hybrids are unobtanium. 
 +   
 +FFI members can see http://​bristol.hackspace.org.uk/​wiki/​doku.php?​id=oscilloscopes or contact TG 
 + 
 + 
 +**AOB** 
 + 
 + 
 +**Tech Skill Share** 
 + 
 + 
 +EG: Nic M circulated (via email list) the idea that artists in BV sometimes take on a young person(s) for a few hours to share skills. Maybe there could be a Tech version by members. 
 + 
 +RL: What's the goal? 
 + 
 +TS: Is this self organised or via some existing structure?​ 
 + 
 +RL: Are any members interested to "tech skill shares"​  
 + 
 +EG: **ACTION** repost the topic to the list to see if there'​s any member interest 
 + 
 + 
 +**Maintenance weekends** 
 + 
 +EG: can the BV studios tidying enthusiasm be replicated for the maintenance weekend? 
 + 
 +RL: when is next w/e scheduled?​ 
 + 
 +TS: **ACTION** check date to send reminders to lists
