Program:  Due to a snafu with the projection equipment, the program by Scott, KMD on his trip to China was postponed and will be re-scheduled for a future meeting.

 

Worth mentioning:  Dave, KIEA did not attend the meeting due to being under the weather.   This was ONLY the second meeting Dave has missed since becoming a member back in the 70s.  What a guy!
