December Meeting Canceled

With an abundance of caution in mind,
President AG5DV gave up his last opportunity to
sit in “The Chair” because of the threat of Winter Storm Diego.
(Don’t blame me – I don’t name the storms)
Stay home.
Talk on the radio.
It’s what we do.
See you in January!


Survey Results

Last week I asked you to take a survey to help me make the Newsletter better. Of the 250 folks who are subscribed to the Newsletter, I got 12 responses I could use. (No, I didn’t fill out a response) There were two other responses that were extreme outliers which I removed from the summary. Here are the results of the survey:

My thanks to those who took the time to respond. For what I can do directly, I will. For others that will require assistance from others, I’ll use the survey to needle them for info.
