Conditions and signals were generally good around UK. Vernon reported little ANZO success with the earlier HF nets but made contact with F stations on 40m. Another good net with reports of interesting activities at Rotary clubs. Bob reported that his Radio Club would be holding an Amateur Radio Masterclass at a local school. 73 to Brian and other listeners.

ED began with an outline of membership difficulties and having an accurate accounting of dues paid members. He also shared how local regions of ROAR retain part of the dues paid for promotion of Regional ROAR projects.. A work in progress is a better means of knowing who are the current (dues paid up) members.
Reports on Rotary and AR activities were.shared as were Health and Welfare reports.
The Parrump, NV Extravaganza was vigorously promoted.
A larger than usual group but a good meeting.
Ed N4EDT closed the meeting at 220Z.
