Mark your calendars! 

Hey gang. There is another meeting of the South Western Pennsylvania Packet Group coming in August. I attended the last meeting and it was well worth my time. As you know one of the projects the new club will be working on is getting a packet system working that will send frequencies of interest to the group. So plan on attending if you can.

Here is the notice they will be sending around to members with notification of the meeting. I got this as a graphic and retyped it so any errors in spelling are mine. ----Ken



Hello again to all. Hope everyone is enjoying the weather so far this year. As I am writing this we have just had out share of wet weather. I hope things have settled down by the time you receive this.

On to the more important things in life. Packet! Our next meeting of the SWPPG will be on Saturday 28 August 2004 at the Blue Flame beginning with brunch.

[ A little note on that matter. The management of the Blue Flame have asked us to remind those attending that we aren’t being charged for the use of their facilities and would appreciate if everyone would purchase something. We do tie up one of their waiters and it is only fair that we support their kindness. ]

Don’t know who will be the featured speaker for this meeting but I am sure it will be informative. It would be nice if each attendee would bring someone to the meeting who might have an interest in the Packet Radio side of the hobby. The more participation we have the better chance of Packet making resurgence statewide as well as nation wide. As you know, many stations have dripped from the rolls for various reasons, mostly because of the Internet. We can’t match the speed of the Internet but we don’t have spam or viruses to contend with.

If anyone has any suggestions or subjects they would like to see covered at this meeting or any future meetings, please drop a Packet message to me via K3MI@K3MI.#SWPA.PA.NAOM or k3mi@atlanticbb.net and we will make every effort to have that subject covered at one of our meetings.

73s and good propagation
