It is not a formal group so we don't have a formal meeting such as a club would have. It is just a chance to meet other scanner listeners and share information. I just organize the location and try to spread it around the metro.Let us know where and what time, and I'll try to make it. I was at the spring fling, and was kind of dissapointed in the lack of organization. It seemed as though every one just did there own thing, and nothing ever got covered in detail.
like the ideaBefore i begin, i want to say how much i appreciate all the work that Mike does on all of these meetings and also that i have only had the opportunity to attend one meeting, which i did enjoy highly.
I like the informal nature of this group and dont think we have nearly the group of people to create something like CARMA, but I wouldn't mind a little bit of structure. I think it would be nice to have a quick bit of group conversation before we all break down into our own huddles and share.
A couple things that I would like to see -
- Everyone introduce themselves, what their online handle is (so we can attach a face with a avatar picture), their amateur radio callsign they you have one, what they do, what radios they use and what they brought, and what they enjoy doing in the scanning realm.
- A quick rundown of the different areas of scanning and anything new or noteworthy that the entire group would appreciate such as HF, VHF, UHF, 800, Federal, Military and ARMER.
- Any other developments such as software or anything else relevant to the community as a whole.
- Everyone should throw down some dates and location suggestions for the next meeting.
After that the free for all could insue...
