Secretary AG1TX

  • Big thanks to David R. Cook (KI5GDX) for controlling the Net tonight. Fantastic Job!
  • If anyone is interested in controlling a net, please let me know! I can set you up to run the net similarly to how David is tonight where I do all the back end data entry and all you need to do is concentrate on the script and the flow of the net.
  • Met with Gerald after the meeting and he is working on reducing admin website log-ins and implementing 2-factor authentication. Hopefully we’ll be up and running posting minutes to the web site.
