SARTS Meeting Nov 2014

This month’s meeting was held at the usual place. It was the last meeting for the year, December being the recess month, as many members and their families would be on holiday.

Even before the meeting started, members and visitors alike were busy doing their own thing, as the meeting was not “warmed up” yet.

This meeting we were all looking forward to a talk entitled “What I have been doing since I got my licence” to be delivered by our youngest ham, Royce Ng 9V1AN who is 16. He passed the RAE in one attempt.AAC09218
