January Meeting This Saturday !

Don’t forget, we’re at the DEM now – see directions on the map to your right.  Check the newsletter for special driving instructions for Northbound 101 members.

Saturday, 12 January, Gate open at 0845, closes at 0900. Late folks park out front and use the front door.  Meeting rusn from 9AM until approx. 1030 or so.

We plan to have Brian show us the Mobile Repeater Software Program, and Jerry will do a power point on the new “White Comm Van” at the DEM.  We’ll also have an ‘Open House” period for members to check out the Radio Room in the EOC.

We’ll be in the EOC for three months, nice comfortable ‘captains chairs’ to fall asleep in, so drink lots of coffee and eat some sugar donuts!!!  In April, we’ll move out into the large training room.

We’ll have a Audit on the 23rd, need 3 volunteers to check the paperwork.  Last Board meeting of the current Officers on the 31st.  Drop by and complain a while:)

Elections in March, we’ll take nominations in February.

And last, maybe someone under 65 would take this web page over full time and make us a up-to-date web page…any volunteers? – My time at this ends in late March (Hint Hint..)

Under then – stay safe and keep that Frequency Greased on your model “TR” Double “E” branch-line. :))

Starts at 9AM until approx. 1030, this Saturday at the Christian School.  See map to your right for complete directions.  The Agenda is short, mainly finishing the years issues, so holiday notes and of course getting prepared for the ‘winter’ operations.

This is the LAST meeting at the school.  We moved to the Department of Emergency Management starting in January 2019.  We will get the web page updated later this month.  How to all of you there one last time this year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for 2019 !
