TRO Is Still Looking For A Home...
The Delta Cafe at 41st & Garnett is working out... somewhat... So, we are still looking for a new meeting location because we need something better.
We are looking for a restaurant (hams do like to eat and socialize) with a meeting room that can accommodate at least 2 dozen people (that's about what our attendance is running lately), and where we are isolated from the noise of other customers (this is a must for conducting business and hearing presentations). We prefer the room to have a large screen TV or monitor that can be connected to a computer for program presenters, or a smooth white wall, or a wall where we can hang a sheet. Also, the basic menu should feature food that most people would enjoy, because not everyone likes every ethnic style.
If you know of a suitable location, please contact our Vice President Paul Young, KE5EHM, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or any club officer.
TRO Field Day Plans -- Got Suggestions??
ARRL Field Day is fast approaching. It will be here sooner that you think, 24 -25 JUN 2017. The Executive Committee wants to know what the members want to do, or if anyone has suggestions for FD plans.
First, who would like to participate?
Where should we have our FD operation? Indoors (with AC, of course)? Outdoors? In Tulsa or Tulsa County? Or outside of Tulsa County?
Who is willing and able to bring out HF equipment? What would you bring?
Should we combine with another club?
Last year, we went to the Okmulgee EOC, and those that went had fun despite the low turnout and uncooperative bands. The Okmulgee County hams were good hosts, and our presence was a benefit to them. We can easily get back there, but we need to know what our members think.
Look for a survey on the club's Facebook page, and I'll have survey forms for members at our meeting Tuesday night. You can also send your responses, ideas and suggestions to WA5LVT@tulsahamradio.org.
Amateur Radio Operators Needed - Memorial Marathon in Oklahoma City, Sunday 30 APR 2017
Amateur radio operators are needed in all parts of the marathon: at medical stations, water trucks, position vehicles, command post and many more. If a runner or spectator become injured and is in need of emergency medical attention, it could be disastrous trying to call for help on an already overloaded system. Amateur radio would still be reliable for situations like this. To sign up simply go to Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. To make sure that you are taken to the correct sign up page be sure to use the code: PSC17 If you have any questions please contact Mike Rockey, KE5EQC email@example.com.
