November Meeting Recap

1) November Club Meeting Board Elections and Guest Presentation to a Full House!

The November 15 Club meeting was great fun, and brought radio operators and will-be radio operators from far and wide.  The first item of Club business was to elect new Board officers, which occurred quickly.  Here are the new officers that will serve for the next two years:

President: Becky Steinbruner (Ki6TKB)

Vice President: Richard Adams (K8SQB)

Secretary: John Gerhardt (N6QX)

Treasurer: Allen Fugelseth (WB6RWU)

Board Member: David Dean (N6DTH)

Board Member: Cap Pennell (KE6AFE)

Board Member (past President): Don Taylor (K6GHA)

Repeater Committee:

Craig Harlamoff (N6SBN)  (special interest in digital modes)

Duane Titus (K6TS)

Many thanks to Gary Watson (K6PDL) and Ned Rice (N6ZOZ) for serving on the Board for the past two years.  We hope they will remain involved in Board discussions as important issues move forward.

A GREAT PRESENTATION BY ERIC SWARTZ (WA6HHQ) followed.  Eric, owner of Elecraft, brought one of the new K4 Direct Sampling SRR HF transceivers that his company has developed and is currently taking orders for production.  He brought a model to demonstrate the amazing technology and kept us all spellbound for the rest of the evening.
