Our guest speaker was Dick Norton, N6AA, our ARRL Southwestern Division Director. Dick spoke on the latest activities of the American Radio Relay League and how they influence our lives as hams. He brought us up to date on the Amateur Radio Parity Act and how we still need to contact our Congressperson Lois Capps and both of our Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer and push for them to sign on as supporters of their respective bills in the House and the Senate.
Dick also talked briefly about the contest for the Santa Barbara Section Manager between our present Manager Rob Griffin, K6YR, of San Luis Obispo and Jim Fortney, K6IYK, of Camarillo. The ballots will arrive in early October in the mail boxes of ARRL members.
The highlight of the Club meeting was the video presentation about President Jay’s recently departed wife and best friend in the world Winnie, KA6OFZ, SK. The well produced video showed Winnie running a QSO between her students and the astronauts passing overhead aboard the International Space Station.
