March 6, 2019 PROGRAM NOTES
The March 6, 2019 general meeting was called to order by Bill Harwell at 7:30 PM with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag followed by people introducing themselves. The attendance signin and CVARS Sunday Net Controller sheets were passed around.

The March calendar, which is available at http://cvars.org/, was presented.
April Van Dyke told the procedure for checking books out from the lending library.

Mike Ritz, W7VO, the ARRL Northwestern Division Director, gave an interesting history of amateur radio callsigns in the United States. He started with the unregulated early days when the size of your spark gap was an important transmitter specification. He continued with the death of amateur radio in the USA during World War 1, amateur radio reconstruction after the war, the effect of the sinking of the Titanic, and through several changes in the structure of amateur radio down to today.

The meeting adjourned at 8:40 PM. There were 22 people registering their attendance on the attendance sheet.
