YCCC Scuttlebutt #119, October 1995
The August, 1995, summer picnic meeting of the Yankee Clipper Contest Club was held on Saturday, August 12, 1995, at Streeter Dam State Park, near the usual club meeting place in Sturbridge. Nine members and their families attended. At the brief business meeting, the club treasury stood at $1497.29. No new members joined the club.
The discussions of the afternoon centered on the expected impact on CT of Windows 95. We also discussed at length the implications of DXpeditions counting for club scores in the ARRL DX contests. DXpedition logistics and strategies for the ARRL contests will be simpler than for the CQ WW contests. We also talked about the PacketCluster system, how it is managed, and the policy towards protecting the sysops' licenses in case of deliberate or inadvertent commercial use of the cluster. Despite the occasional stray raindrop, club Prez JP, AA2DU, managed to grill even more kielbasa than he and ex-prez Rich, K2WR, could eat.
