is of importance to the ham community. You may recall that prior to
my, Mark Weiss, K6FG, presentation at last Friday’s Club meeting, I
voiced my strong opposition to the
ARRL Code of Conduct. I also informed the members in attendance
outrageous censure of our friend, Dick Norton, by the ARRL Board.
You might also recall the immediate and strong consensus that was
voiced by the members present.
I believe it would be of service to all who read the newsletter and
the website to
become aware of the current mischief taking place in Newington.
Thank you & 73,
Mark Weiss, K6FG
