Old business:
Russ talked to Matt Friesen at Mid-Kansas Co-op, the manager of Cooperative Grain Lyman Adams. Russell is checking with Eagle Communications.

Aaron Diller along with Marc Friesen will ask about the Heartland 100's need of ham radio communications.

Russell Groves is a ARRL VE. Jeanne should have hers by the reading of these minutes.

Program for January Meeting: Packet Radio, John Goerzen, KR0L

John has put together a system for a packet node to connect to the EOC radio and the packet node will be a BBS system. He now has a presentation. The Library's projector was claimed, and Kent secured a projector for the packet presentation. James attended to set up the projector and learned a bit about packet.

John will be working on his presentation as he is also going to share the idea with other Clubs.

Meeting was adjourned at 8:35pm
