This month’s meeting was held a the usual QTH.

There was going to be an auction of ham items from the estate of an SK. Some bids had already arrived by email, but the rules required the hammer to fall at the meeting. Therefore, the hams who really wanted to win the a particular item were definitely present at the meeting.  afc03080
