SARTS Meeting March 2015

This month’s meeting was held as usual at the Medical Alumni. There was a Council Meeting at 630 pm, and therefore all the council members were at the conference room before any members arrived. The meeting commenced at 810 pm.

There were quite a few visitors this month, some not new.

This was followed by a hands-on where members used their handies tuned to
145.500 MHz and communicated over the link to a few hams, one of whom is
an old friend Sakai Shiro 9V1PW, who has returned to Japan. It was
nice to hear him again.

We all enjoyed the camaraderie and many hams stayed back to eyeball after the talk.

73,

See you next month!
