It was a well attended April 14th meeting. We had a stimulating talk by Master Chief Petty Officer Michael DiSimone USN. He is the command Master Chief on the USS Constitution. All members in attendance enjoyed his stimulating talk and pictures of the Constitution and the ships unique place in the history of the country and the US Navy. He also discussed some of his experiences as a long time qualified Naval Submariner and life aboard the Naval Sub.
Next Month (May 12th) we will have a stimulating talk on unique ways to make a VHF antenna, plus Nominations of officers for the next year.
Many thanks to Lou Harris N1UEC, Herb Ryan W1KVQ, and Nelson Dionne AA1MO for forming our nomination committee.
