Congratulations to our new slate of officers (see bottom of this page) elected at the November, 2018 meeting. After a short review of business by Hale N3NYC, elections were held. Neil W3ZQI spoke of our on-going plans to expand the hamfest vendors/attendees to include robotics, drones, and R/C. Jim WB3DJU mentioned a meeting space and storage opportunity. He followed with a discussion of his recent 5,000 mile road trip by RV over much of the country, to include visiting the Collins Radio Company in Grand Rapids and viewing the Mississippi River. He then showed his new Family Radio HTs with a discussion of their design and capabilies. Subsequent discussions included popular choices for starter HF amateur radio stations.
