June 21 - Show & Tell - All members are invited to bring something you have built (finished or not, working or not) and discuss what it does, what you hope to accomplish with it, and get feedback from the group. This could be a great opportunity to get help from the members if you have run into problems with a project and a chance for all of us to learn something new.


July 19 - I think Paul wants to dedicate the meeting to the hamfest and loading items that need to be transported to the hamfest the next day - so no formal presentation). Paul - please confirm.


August 16 - Winlink Presentation - Frank Skiles:  Comparison of Winlink to ALE and D-Rats with advantages/disadvantages of each.


Thanks and 73,

Bill, KF5PQ
