Correspondence: RTTY Component for NW trophy -- A lively discussion was had regarding adding in the RTTY components of the appropriate contests which are now part of the NW Trophy. The original request was from the Portland club. The intent would be to include three additional contests as opportunities to score points for the yearly trophy challenge. It was resolved that the President will notify the Portland club that we're in agreement with their plans. Request for funding for Glorioso Island DXpedition -- FR/G is going to be active later this year, and the board voted $100 in support of the operation.
