We don't need to adjust the constitution to enable most spending
decisions.  Votes only need to be held for purchases that exceed the
budget.  Recommend some changes and we can vote on a new budget to
replace our current one.

How about something like these examples?

Up to $1500/site may be spent on the equipment needed to erect a new
full cell in the network.

Up to $350/year may be spent on lab or demonstration equipment.

Up to $500/year may be spent to replace faulty equipment, as needed.

Current HamWAN Annual Budget (Adopted 2015-02-24):
Up to $200/year may be spent on the liability insurance coverage we
need to host our equipment at certain third-party owned sites.

Up to $200/year may be spent on internet hosting related expenses such
as domain names, server hosting and certificates.

Up to $200/year may be spent on miscellaneous administrative fees,
including PO box rental as well as other fees required to keep our
non-profit filings up to date.

This budget replaces all existing ones and does not expire until a new
one is approved.  As provided in the HamWAN constitution, a separate
vote must be held for incurring any other expenses over $100.
