    I'm sorry you are having issues. I do agree that the audio is lower than most of my videos (one of the fallbacks of having to record from someone else's sound system) but it should be at a level easy enough to hear.

    When I turn everything up to 11 I hear it just fine. That means 10 should work okay too, right?

    I believe that, after watching the video, the experienced and most qualified candidate is extremely obvious. WGD needs the continued experience and effective guidance of the incumbent, Mr. Stratton.

    I agree !

    Madison was ill prepared, used less than 7 minutes out of the 15 avaialble to
    present his case on why he should be our next Director.
    (Imagine that a contest op and dxer that left time on the clock, apparaently he does not take asking for our votes as a serious thing)

    He stated that to get antennas in HOA's is easy, just get two or three of your ham buddies to sit on the HOA as Board of Directors
    and rewrite the rules. I thought he had been an experienced attourney (now retired), Fact is it takes 65% or more of the home owners in an HOA to change the laws.

    From the question the young lady asked about what he said about Vice getting seated as the director in Good Ol Boy Fashion
    He (Mr. Madision) obvisously has little understanding of the ARRL By Laws on Vice Directors/Directors.

    The one prepared to work for us is obviously John Robert Stratton
    He has the experience gained working as the Vice Director under Dr. Woolweaver
    He has the strength and knowledge to get things done

    I am Voting for John Robert Stratton and hope you will as well.

    Challenger W5MJ's comments about HOAs demonstrate he is out of touch with the reality of living in one.

    I believe John Stratton - N5AUS to be the more experienced and prepared candidate for West Gulf Division Director, and has my support to continue in that role.
