We have completed the voting and the results have been tabulated and the proposal to extend the use of VHF radios has passed by a margin of 85% for and 15% against.  It is important to know that a significant number of us took the time to review the proposal and to vote so we can feel good that this change has been agreed to by a majority of members.
