Happy Birthday to Earle VE3KCO and Ralph VE3CIW/VE3VXY.

Earle has renewed his membership so he remains the custodian of the club

Elmer: Ralph nominated Rod VE3SOY. Rod agreed to do it if Nick would
share the duties.

Christian has written his basic exam and his new call sign is VA3CEQ.
Congratulations Christian.

Nick VE3EBC did a fine presentation on handheld health (try saying that
three times fast). He outlined several strategies to get the best
performance from a radio, such as choosing the right antenna, various
methods of testing RF output, measuring frequency, tuning, etc.
