Metro club entry in CQWW-160 ranked six from the bottom.
contests are the RTTY Roundup on January 2 and the CQWW-160 CW and SSB contests

to the small number of members present this evening, little of real club
importance was taken up and most of the conversations were about various ham
radio projects, etc. It was
mentioned that the Metro DX Club Winterfest Banquet will be held on Friday
January 15th and that information will be shortly furnished to all
members. We had a great time last year at the Ashford House and I am
certain it will be just as good this time around. Save the date of
meeting will be the last one for me as Secretary/Treasurer and I want to say
that I have enjoyed working with my fellow officers and club members for all
those years. Jerry Celmer K9PY will
be taking over as of January 1, 2010.
