January, 2021 meeting

Club Treasurer Dave AB3TE opened the January, 2021 meeting. A turnout of nine people. Neil W3ZQI Secretary read the December meeting minutes. Dave AB3TE gave the treasurer’s report; again, modest spending during the month. We continue plans to hold our 2021 hamfest which remains dependent upon state guidelines for maximum attendance. We have the ability to print flyers on demand. Most area hamfests up to April have been cancelled. No new business. Post-meeting, informal chit-chat: Bud W3LL said that Dayton was still a go and he spoke of making his travel arrangements. With antenna system woes, he is restricted to 80M. Bud mentioned free remote desktop software: Google Desktop Remote. Dave AB3TE spoke of his Yaesu FT2980 HT. Jim W3BBE spoke of Maryland hospital readiness with CHATS — Neil W3ZQI Secretary
