Club. The cost of the ticket is $14.50, and I would like to receive
payment this Friday, Aug 19th, at the club meeting. Final deadline to

waiting list. This will be a private, dedicated tour guild.

requested (No sandals or flip flops).

Our speaker for August is Orv Beach,
W6BI, and he will be giving an overview of digital mesh networking,
one of the newest modes in amateur radio. It's a ham radio 'internet'
(with a lowercase 'i'). He'll talk about what it is, how it works and
how and why it's growing rapidly in Southern California. If a ham is
also into computers, it's a great mode to get involved with!
Please join us for dinner before the meeting, at Lulu’s around
Roscoe Blvd, Van Nuys, CA.
