Our guest was Roger Eaton, deputy commander of the Flint Hills composite squadron of the Civil Air Patrol. Lt. Col.

He left several informational flyers that are available at the club station.
Members of the Civil Air Patrol plan to return next month with a show-and-tell tour of their communications truck.
No other official club business was discussed at the meeting. Plans were made for participation in the CQ WWDX RTTY contest for the coming weekend.
The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, October 26th in 135 Ward. Members of the Civil Air Patrol will return with a show-and-tell of their mobile communications truck.
