Greetings from Oklahoma, on January 23, 2016, at the Iron Skillet Resturant, Oklahoma City, we held our annual meeting and election of officers. We had 20 members and guests present, in July 2015 we had 19 members, now grown to 34 members. The chapter at one time had 140 members, well before my time, kind of makes you wonder what happened? Anyway the meeting was great, nice to met new Hams and old friends alike. Until next time, 47’ and 73’ Sec/Treasurer Chapter 63, Howard WD5IDB
