Forty four members and visitors were in attendance at the February meeting. After introductions and a few updates from the board the meeting began with Chris, W7JPG leading a discussion on the mentoring/Elmer program. He collected information from the meeting attendees about topics they could mentor and topics they would like assistance with. Chris will build a list of mentors and their proficient topics to be available on the groups.io site. We also attempted a QSO with the VP8PJ dxpedition via remote station. We had internet difficulties and were not able to complete the contact.
We had a huge turnout at the Januray meeting, 41+ in attendance. A few new prospective members and visitors from local Fire Safe Councils were in attendance. Dave, K6TQ was our main speaker. Dave gave a presentation about his journey to get a tower installed at his home. We also wished safe travels to Steve, W1SRD and his team for their DX expedition to South Okney Island.
