Hey gang,

Thanks to all who participated in Wednesday's zoom meeting, featuring the VP8PJ South Orkney Islands DXpedition report by Gene K5GS.

For those who were unable to attend, the following nominations were presented by the Nominating Committee for 2021 officers. There were no floor nominations voiced. So please join me in welcoming these members to the following positions by acclamation:

John Long KW7A as Presdident
Mark Richardson W7HPW as Vice-President
Ryan Rumsey KG7FRS as Secretary
Charlie Mayne WF0W as Treasurer
Curt Wilbur K7CU as Director

Also on the Board will be myself, as Past-President, and George WF4U as Director. We thank Ron KF7ZN and Wayne N7NG for their service on the board in 2020.

Our next meeting will be again on the third Wednesday: December 16, 2020 from 7:00 pm. Of course this year we won't be getting together for the traditional club dinner, but we hope to see many of you there as we celebrate some club and member achievements in 2020. Stay tuned for details.

Finally, Gene thought we would be interested to know that one of the Braveheart's commercial contracts that had them in the South Atlantic and the Southern Ocean, Dec 2019,  was filmed by the Discovery Channel,  details below. After they completed the Impossible Row project Braveheart went on to the Falklands and then South Georgia => Falklands with a team studying whales, then to Punta Arenas to collect the VP8PJ group.

73 ES GUD DX,
John KK7L
