Jim Dean, Membership Chairman, mentioned about renewal of Chapter 70 dues and also QCWA HQ dues. He reminded us of the present favourable rate for HQ membership. This rate may change at any time so take advantage of these rates now. George Schuthe reminded all of the QCWA phone QSO party to be held on March 11 and 12th.
