TRO Looking For A New Meeting Place
Due to changes at Tally’s Cafe, we are looking for a new locaton for our meetings.  We gave The Brook Restaurant, 34th & Peoria a try at the August membership meeting.  It worked out better than Tally’s, but we will continue to look for a new meeting site.
The new location does not have to be an eatin’ place, and if not, it should be close to at least one good restaurant.  For a restaurant to work, it must have a separate room that isolates us from the noise of other customers, is centrally located in Tulsa, and should be able to handle 2 to 3 dozen people.  If anyone knows of a suitable location, please contact me or any TRO officer with details.
#####
What’s On The Program?
In order to make our meetings more fun, interesting, and useful for our members, the Executive Committee has decided to get back to having programs every month.  But we need your help.  Do you have an idea for a program?  If so, let us know!
Are your curious about some aspect of ham radio, and would like to see a program on the topic?  Let us know!
You don’t have to put on the program, but if you are able and willing to do so, that would be great!  Just tell us your idea, and we will work on putting it together.
The programs don’t have to be about ham radio.  Hams tend to be technical people, so anything technical or scientific will do.
By the way, we used to tour a TV or broadcast radio station, or the Tulsa EOC, or the NWS Office once a year, but we haven’t done that in about a decade.  Let us know if you would like to go on such a tour, and where.
Send you ideas to TRO Vice President Paul Young at ke5ehm@tulsahamradio.org.
