We introduced ourselves. No official guests were noted but Jerry, NX0I was present after being away for a while.
Club dues of $20 for 2018 are now being accepted by AB0X. You can also pay using Pay Pal at the club website.
AB0X now has five hotel rooms available for the Dayton Hamvention. Contact Mike if you are interested. Mike would like to hand the room coordination task off to someone else. Contact Russ or Mike if interested. He has performed this task for a long time. So far it looks like about ten of us are planning to go this year.
