The club expressed it's thanks and gratitude to Cathy for her exemplary service to the PVARC over the past few years, and extended a welcome to the incoming Cox who will take his officer's seat at the next monthly meeting.
In other business, the PVARC membership voted in favor of purchasing a D-Star radio to compliment the newly purchased D-Star repeater.
