The Secretary was not only late for the meeting by approximately 8 minutes, and additionally was suitably chastised for not stopping by 
the club PO box to pick up the mail.  Consequently, there may have been correspondence, but it remained unread, safely ensconced in the 
PO Box, during the entire meeting.

The Treasurer's report was reviewed and approved.
 
The Secretary is to follow up with N0AX to make sure an email address for W7DX is on QRZ.com (and has since found out that QRZ.COM 
lists "membership@wwdxc.org" as the contact email address on QRZ.COM. Thanks Ward!)

The Packet Cluster equipment has been moved to N6MZ QTH

Our w7dx Repeater site (147.00, input 600Kc down)  was visited on 5/17, and the backup machine seen, in preparation for transition to 
Herb W7ZF as coordinator. A discussion ensued about appropriate use of the machine, and consideration given to ARES/RACES usage as 
necessary.

W7DX callsign is to be transitioned to the new trustee KT7G

The new WWDXC Bylaws, thoughtfully drafted by Hillar, redrafted, and reviewed by the board over the last few months will be placed before 
the membership at large for review and a vote "real soon now", after a motion was carried by the board. A suggestion to have the bylaw 
voting meeting at field day was shouted down by the president.
