At the October 2014 club meeting, the Nominating Committee submitted the following slate of officers for the coming year.
     President: Greg W4TSA
     Vice-President: Cecil K4TCD
     Director at Large: Lee KK4JSJ
A motion was approved by the members present to accept those nominations, and nominations were closed.  Election of officers will be at the regularly scheduled meeting in November.
Check out the “Economy End Fed Matchbox” on EBay, and tell a friend.  Club member Ken, W4KGH, who is constructing and selling these, has generously volunteered to share the profit with the club.  Loads of info about end fed antennas may be found at DX Zone.  Also, a wire length/SWR table provided by Balun Designs suggests wire lengths for multiband, end fed antennas.
