3. How Did Your Chapter Improve Over Last Year?

4. What Are Your Unique or Innovative Chapter Activities?

5. Miscellaneous Information or Elaboration on Any of the Above Topics

Unfortunately, all our life in Russia now is very hard and we are going from bad to worse. The great majority of our members must to be up to his ears in continuous work without normal salary in order to make ends meet. When you are specialist in antennas and live in today Russia, you have to learn how to cut corners. But I am an optimist and hope everything will be OK in the long run.


Thank You beforehand for contacting the APS-Chapter in Russia Section. If You are ever in Moscow come to our meeting. If that’s not possible, at least contact me or one of our officers. We Care and Share.
