Trainings at meetings, date TBD:
Table Top Exercise on how we get deployed.
ICS 100, 200, 700, 800: What’s in it for me? Why do we need to take those courses when we don’t seem to use them?
Upcoming/potential projects and exercises.
We need to do some nighttime testing with HF. We also need to find a way to establish a VHF/UHF link to Spokane and other surrounding areas.
Event idea: do a non-repeater exercise to determine who can talk to who on what equipment.
Informational meeting Feb. 12, 7PM, Rm. 2B in the Courthouse. Enter thru north door, off 5th Street.
AuxComm dues are due.
As a result of the 501(c)3 Austin is separating the Club and Store business activities. A PayPal account for the club will set up.
Starting at the second February meeting we will be moving the meetings to the Iron Wok café.

WE NEED MEETING TOPICS AND TRAINING IDEAS!
