W8TN gave a PowerPoint presentation on "QSL'ing Tips & Tricks." And the new WVDXA.com web page was presented "live" on the Internet. Also, from the Internet, W8TN presented a brief view and description of the ARRL's Logbook of the World (LoTW) web site and how that system can be used to confirm QSO's without the need for a physical QSL card. Finally, a brief view of the WVDXA's new Chat Page on Slack.com was presented. Note: you can click on any photo here to see a larger image.

Steve, WW8RT, collected donations for the upcoming T3ØGC - West Kiribati DX'pedition. Then W8TN noted that the WVDXA has supplied $20,556 to 32 various DX'peditions plus $498 to ClubLog.
Great fellowship and camaraderie were had by all and the joining of our meeting with the Birthday Party made our gathering truly memorable!
