SARTS Meeting July 2014

This month’s meeting was held on 31 July 2014 at the usual place. The little meeting room was so full of members and visitors that we had to bring in more chairs from outside.

President 9V1JN Jothi called the meeting to order at 2005 hrs.

From the attendance sheet, it appeared that there was a large number of visitors. Quite a few were repeat visitors: Nicholas Chan and Royce Ng who has just received his callsign 9V1AN. Royce said that his callsign had been assigned by the IDA as he did not indicate his choice to them.
