  • The August monthly member meeting is cancelled as it typically is during the PNW DX convention, (August 7, 2021 this year)
  • The Board discussed ongoing monthly membership meetings. The result of holding meetings over a virtual platform has shown a rise in attendance bringing together hams that may typically not be able to attend due to distance or driving considerations. In addition, guest speakers can present in the comfort of their own home. Consequently, the consensus is that the virtual presentations will continue.
