First, let me sincerely thank those who were able to attend the March meeting! We made some progress on shirts for the group, information about the Echolink situation on the Benton County Repeater, and more!
I have a new update for you!
Today I heard from Ken Wade of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Our letter of intent and information about what we would like to do as a special events amateur radio club is making its way up the chain! I will attach an updated version of the letter to this post. Ken explained that either our request would be considered at the Kansas City level or it would be moved back to the Harry S Truman Dam and Reservoir level to be determined.
I believe all the gentlemen I have had the honor of speaking with have understood that we wish to operate in harmony with those at the various dams and we are about promoting a positive image and experience, not only for our club but also for our partners!
Here’s hoping I will have more news soon, if not by our April meeting! I let Ken know we are interested in operating in July 2019 and it seems we gave them enough time to consider!
Thank you to all of the wonderful members of D.A.R.K. for your patience while I learn and take the proper steps to not only operate our club, special events and more, but also while I learn about permissions we need to run our events!
