May 20, 2016 General Club Meeting

Dick Norton on his DXpedition to Ascension Island

Dick Norton on his DXpedition to Ascension Island

Our guest speaker for the night was Dick Norton, N6AA, Director of the Southwestern Division of the American Radio Relay League. It is always a pleasure to hear Dick speak. He began with some ARRL news and updates, then treated us to a talk and slideshow about a DX Expedition he participated in on Ascension Island! It was quite interesting and Dick’s mix of information and humor is always fun.

It was also Old Timer’s night, and the winner of the earliest licensed ham was Joe – K6DXW. He has been licensed for over 50 years! Also on display was cherished pieces of vintage radio equipment and old photos from our members collections. If you missed the meeting, you missed the opportunity to see some really interesting gear. We have come a long way!

The audio for the meeting is in two parts. Head over to the Audio Archives and enjoy Dick’s presentation..
