TCDXA MEETING MINUTES
Monday, January 19, 2009
The meeting was called to order by the club President, Mike, NØODK
A “standing room only” crowd showed up for this meeting!
34 Members, 1 Guest (Frank, N1UW)
The award this month for driving the greatest distance to the meeting
The application for 501 (c) (3) status is still pending. The IRS has
requested additional information about the club, so the saga goes on.
We will continue “patient persistence”.
Interest in the Flex 5000 SDR program undoubtedly drew the big crowd.
And, the guys didn’t disappoint us. KØEOO, WØLS, and WØPR, did an
outstanding job of presenting the hardware and software features that
make this radio the talk of the town. Thanks for doing a terrific job!
Jay, KØQB filled the members in on the latest from the league having just
returned from the ARRL Annual Board of Directors meeting.
Mike, NØODK addressed the challenge of scheduling programs for the
meetings, and asked for ideas from the membership. Anyone who will do a
program, or has a suggestion for one, please contact one of the officers.
With the exception of KP5 in February, 2009 is looking like a quiet year for
major DXpeditions. The down turn in the world wide economy is no doubt
going to force some groups to put their plans on hold.

same table is a coincidence. There was no collusion involved.
